The engaging trumpeter, singer, and composer Bob Merrill has a Boston gig I think you would like.
It’s at the Regattabar on February 18, 2016 — beginning at 7:30 PM: details here (order tickets, etc.) as well as a nice writeup of Bob and the band if they are not familiar to you. It’s a CD release show for CHEERIN’ UP THE UNIVERSE, and the band is a fine one: Bob, trumpet / vocals; Russ Gershon, reeds / flute; Freddy Bryant, guitar; Laurence Hobgood, piano; John Lockwood, string bass; George Schuller, drums; Vicente Lebron, percussion.
Here’s a charming audio-visual sample:
and Bob’s YouTube channel is here.
When Bob’s CD came out, I enjoyed it and wrote this. So if you are in the Boston area or plan to be, consider joining Bob for an evening of his particular light-heartedness.
May your happiness increase!
