From our roving correspondent Marianne Mangan, good news indeed:
Happy Spring! It seems we’ve seen a lot more April showers than May flowers, but we do have this to look forward to:
Peter Ecklund will be appearing in a night of jazz standards and original music at the Greenwich Village Bistro on Wednesday, May 13th. The mix of material promises to be eclectic and tuneful: some Bix, some Basie, some surprises.
Mike Weatherly on bass (with the occasional vocal) and Will Holshouser on accordion will join Peter on trumpet and flugelhorn. Guest appearances include the Potted Palm Orchestra and the Music Minus One Orchestra.
That’s Wednesday, May 13th, 9 to 11, at the Greenwich Village Bistro (13 Carmine Street between 6th & Bleecker). For reservations, call 718-213-4736. No cover, no minimum. Suggested donation $5.
Also, Peter is about to launch a new website: www.peterecklundmusic.com
Visits will be in order…but first and foremost to the Bistro on May 13th!
