As always March is a busy month, as South by Southwest takes over Austin for two solid weeks. This year I have the privilege of hosting an (un)official showcase: March 15 we will feature a plethora of Austin artists and out-of-town guests at Kickbutt Coffee for a World Music Showcase. It will be a great way to meet and hang with the artists and we’ll culminate the evening with a world music jam!
I have been enjoying a monthly residency at Romeo’s with my band Manteca Beat. It reminds me of the Italian restaurants my family used to go to back in New England, but with great live music added. This month we’ll be there March 11, 10-midnight.
Hot off the heels of a big Mardi Gras throwdown in Ft. Worth, I’ll be playing several cool world music events with Sangeet Millennium and Ragavatar, mixing Indian classical music with jazz fusion. I’ll also be doing an official SXSW showcase with my buds The Just Desserts, exploring Latin American, Eastern European and some funky Americana sounds.
