Here in MN and the summer season is upon us. So as a musician that means clips for sheet music on outdoor performances and some sort of insect repellent for the evenings. Southside Aces at the Old Log theater with Maud Hixson and Rick Carlson a great tribute to one Johnny Mercer. Twin Cities Hot Club will be a part of the Twin Cities Shuffle a Balboa Dance event and we will take the stage at the Loring Pasta Bar on July 16, subbing for CAO. I will not play summertime on every gig, but it is fun to know the season is here, at least for now.
