And The New Effect

End of 2017 Shows + New Record

November 7, 2017

I’m wrapping up 2017 with some really cool shows all over the country starting next week (November 9-10) in New York City with two rare (for me) acoustic shows. November 9th I’ll be doing a set at The Bitter End in Greenwich Village at 6pm and November 10th I’ll be doing a set at Silvana in Harlem at 7pm.

The last two Fridays in November the band and I, along with many special guests, will be celebrating Duane Allman’s birthday at Soulshine Pizza Factory in Nashville. On both November 17th and 24th we will be playing one set of my original music, followed by a guest-filled second set of Duane Allman-related music, with focus on his prolific session work.

In early December we will be out in Tennessee and North Carolina (full tour TBA) with a headlining appearance at Barley’s in Knoxville on December 2nd and an appearance on WDVX’s Blue Plate Special earlier that day.

The following week I will be in San Francisco at The Fillmore with Devon Allman, North Mississippi Allstars, Duane Betts, Robert Randolph, Bobby Whitlock, G Love, and many more.

I’ll also be at The Funky Biscuit on December 23rd as part of the Brothers and Sisters family jam with Scott Sharrard (Gregg Allman Band), Marc Quinones (Allman Brothers Band), Berry Duane Oakley, and special guests The Melody Trucks Band, followed by a short New Years run with my own band.

We are also working on a brand new album, due for release in early spring with a single coming before the end of November. Stay tuned for the single, preorder info, etc.
