Ok, It’s September, so what. The leaves are still green, and the sun is still shining. And we’re celebrating what we have, so come and join us at the Old Nick Monday the 28th.

Elana Harte has kindly invited us back as part of her M Factor Mondays series, and we’ll be doing a set or two unlike any we’ve done before. Mostly our original work, with some new material, and some re-imagined older tunes. Doc on Guitar, Neil Kitagawa on sax and bass, and Loren on banjos.

Starts at 7:30 with whatever magic Elana has up her sleeve – if you’ve yet to see her, come! Or come earlier, and have some dinner – we’ll be there if you want to crowd in at our table. We’ll be on 8:30 or so, playing up a storm

At last. Some swelter. Took long enough. Now to start washing it down with some cold drinks, snappy conversation, and easy music. And I know just the place …

H&D @ Grafitti’s June 23, 2015

Join us this coming Tuesday, June 23rd, for an early evening of energizing frivolity ending plenty soon enough to make your Wednesday breeze by as if in a dream.

There may be a film crew about, as well. We’ve been honoured to be asked to do some tracks for an upcoming documentary on Kensington Market, and some live shots are needed. Your chance to get yer mug in, should you feel the need.

We will be doing 3 sets starting about 7, and as always, a never-before and never-again mix of tunes. Me on banjos, Doc on guitar, and Neil Kitagawa​ on sax and bass. Shorter sets so we’ll have more time for catching up. Hope you can make it.

We’ve done it again. Elana Harte of The Stiletto Flats fame, and an awesome rocker, has invited us back to her M-Factor Mondays showcase at the The Old Nick on The Danforth. We’ll be playing what we believe to be the “killer set” starting sometime around 8:30.

But please come earlier to hear Elana and crew kick it off with their own killer set about 7:30 … you will not regret it

The Old Nick is on the south side of The Danforth, just east of Broadview Station. The food is great. See you there …

Graffiti’s Banner – March 26th, 2015

March 26th – 7 – 10 PM – be there or be square.

We’ve cracked the icicles off our ears, put away the snowshoes, and we’re really going to put some spring in our steps. To celebrate, we’re doing something we’ve never done before, including a bunch of tunes we’ve either never played, or not in some years (and never the way we’re doing them this time). Shorter sets, so more time for gabbing, too. Be buckets of fun.

Come and help us enjoy the balmy breezes in Kensington Market on a Thursday evening. And the fine libations at Graffiti’s. Early start so lots of time to get home and rest up for Friday. One show only – no cover – just party. Make us your spring wakeup.

As usual, we will be joined by the Earl of Bassax hisself, Neil Kitagawa.

I have been asked again to host the Yor Magic Open Mic at the Magic Oven on Keele in The Junction on Saturday, March 7th, from 2 – 6PM.

This has turned into quite the event, with more people trying to sign up than we have time for and more people gathering to listen than we have chairs for.

This week I’ll be accompanied by my good buddy Neil Kitagawa on bass and sax for my small opening bit, and possibly some guitar playing friends for a bit of a jam. After that – we’ve has so many talented performers – musicians, comics, poets, storytellers … I expect it will be quite  the afternoon.
