MS at the 2016 Battle of The Big Bands aboard The Intrepid in NYC!

I’ll be with The George Gee Orchestra on the 28th as part of the 2016 Battle of The Big Bands aboard the Intrepid aircraft carrier. Over 1,500 people will be dancing to us on the flight deck.

It’s going to be an historic night – if you’re in the area, definitely grab some tickets and be a part of the great event!

The Django is a GREAT new jazz club in lower Manhattan. Come dance the night away with a new project of mine – “Props for Pops”. We’ll be channeling the spirit of the one and only Louis Armstrong all night long!

I’m delighted to be a special guest with the newly formed Triangle Traditional Jazz Society on April 3rd and April 4th. I’ll be giving 2 concerts – 1 with the Second Line Stompers and the other with the Triangle Youth Jazz Ensemble (a 2016 Essentially Ellington finalist). Both concerts will occur at The Glenwood Club in Raleigh, NC.

I’ve been using the Nylon Outlaw for a couple of years now, and I couldn’t imagine transporting my horns any other way. With my tour schedule, I wouldn’t trust anyone other case.

If you’re in the market for a new case that is light, and VERY protective, give them a look. I couldn’t recommend them more!
