Napper’s Smithtown with the Windbreakers!

There are a couple of not-so-run-of-the-mill gigs to tell you about so please bear with me this week.

First off, we have a happy hour this Friday, March 1st, at Napper Tandy’s, 15 E Main St, Smithtown, at 7:30. What makes this one unique is that we’re going to play an entire set with a four-piece horn section, hereinafter known as “The Windbreakers.” Many of you who have seen us recently know that we’ve often been joined on alto sax by our good friend Mike Quadrino for portions of our gigs–to expand on that the ‘Breakers will consist of Mike along with a tenor sax, a trumpet, and a trombone. Of course our other two sets will be the “regular” X-Session that you’ve come to know and (hopefully) love.

Now some of you on this list go back to the earliest days of X-Session when Jim was a percussionist standing up, Ed played bass, and–first Todd, then Matt, and then yours truly–played acoustic guitar. On Saturday March 16th we’re going to pay homage to those early days with a gig at XO Wine & Chocolate Lounge, 69 Wall St., Huntington. Matt and I will both be there and we’ll play as a quartet, but we’re leaving the electric guitars and keyboards at home in favor of acoustics and a mandolin and Jim will get off the stool and drum standing up–I get nostalgic just thinking about it. And for those of you who don’t already know it from my solo gigs there, XO is an incredible restaurant and has a full fondue and desert menu as well. It figures to be a very special evening.

After taking a rare Thursday night off to see The Who I’m back playing solo at my regular Thursday night locale, Greek Delight, 2601 Merrick Rd., Bellmore. And on Wednesday March 6th, I’ll be at RS Jones (or Rattlesnake Jones as some of you know it), 153 Merrick Ave., Merrick, from 7 until 10.

Wow, thanks for staying with me ’til the end, I appreciate it. Have a great week and I’ll speak with you soon.
