I just wanted to let you know about several performances I have coming up. The first is with the Dakota Combo on Saturday, July 16 at 4:00 on the Youth Stage at the Dakota Street Fest. The stage is on Nicollet Mall and 11th St. S, across from Peavy Plaza.

Second, I am playing with my trio (Ted Olsen, bass; Matt Buckner, drums) at the Bean Good Cafe in St. Louis Park on Monday, July 18, 25 and Monday, August 1 from 7:00 to 9:00. No cover, but tips are encouraged.

Next, I am playing with my trio on Saturday, July 23 from 9:00 to midnight at the Gingko Coffehouse in St. Paul. We will be playing a set, and following that, there will be a jam session open to anyone interested in playing! There is no cover, but a donation of at least $3 is encouraged.

Then, on Sunday, July 24, at 10:00, I will be playing with Owen Miller (saxophone), Ted Olsen (bass), and Matt Buckner (drums) at the Acadia Cafe for “Minneapolis Free Music Society Presents…” This will be a completely improvised set; there is no cover.

Finally, on Saturday, July 30 at 5:15, I will be debuting my quintet (Caleb McMahon, trumpet; Brad Allen, saxophone; Jordan Jenkins, bass; Cameron LeCrone, drums) at the Midtown Global Market Jazz Festival.

Hope to see you there!
