I should add that Stephanie is a friend and it was she who sent this email to me.
Happy Summer Everybody -
It is finally safe to come out after that ridiculous spring - let's celebrate together! I will be hanging and playing downstate with Larry Harms this weekend along with some of the other usual suspects (namely Randy Emert and Cory Flanigan) and it would sure tickle us all to see YOU there too. Bring your appetites and your friends to Basta O'Neil's on Cummings Lane in Washington this Thursday, June 9 from 6 - 9pm. This is the LHT's regular Thursday thang and I am delighted to be crashing their party. Then on Friday, June 10, join us at the Contemporary Art Center on Water Street in downtown Peoria from 5:30 to 7:30 for a happy kickoff to your weekend. The last couple of times we have played there we've enjoyed ourselves with the original Larry Harms/Stephanie Aaron duo, but this time we're bringing back the boys to swing, swing, swing. The CAC encourages you to bring some goodies to munch on and a bottle of something to quench your thirst - Larry and I encourage you to bring your kids, your parents, your in-laws, etc. as it makes for a great night for the family.
Finally, Larry and I will be playing on Saturday night, June 11 at Beignet's on the Corner, just down the street from the CAC on State and Water from 8 - 11pm. We have some new ballads to try out - if you haven't checked out Beignet's yet, come and see us. You'll love the menu and the intimate atmosphere as much as we do. This is the place for that special evening you've been meaning to have with your sweetheart...leave the kids at home and have a lovely night, grown-up style.
I'm looking forward to getting together with my fave musicians in my fave place: HOME!! Hope to see you there too -
