The NAIL-ing List: Neil Alexander's News & Happenings
The September Issue of The NAILing List
September - that time of year when the kids go back to school, College starts up again, the days grow shorter, the air gets cooler and we get back to the business at hand: Gigs, gigs & more gigs! There's a really nice review of the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival in DOWNBEAT magazine, and don't forget to check out the new Mr. Gone website over at www.mrgoneband.com. The new video footage (shot at the Falcon show on June 5th by Front Row Dave) is Here.
119 Liberty Street Newburgh NY Sponsored by The Wherehouse Restaurant
Not much is known about the Mysterious Phantom.The erie sounds of the Phantom's theremin-laced music can be heard drifting through hudson valley cemeteries and deserted, burned out & forgotten homes...
You never know when the Phantom will strike but he usually makes an appearance at Newburgh's Psychedelic Zombie Barbecue, hosted by the Wherehouse Restaurant.
Once again I'll be performing withthe wonderful Steven Frieder Group. I've known Steve for many years and he has become a vital new voice in the Hudson Valley jazz scene. We'll be joined by drummer Konstantine Galanopoulis. There's no cover for this outdoor show which starts at 2 pm, part of White Plans Wellness Week.
