Just as things are starting to heat up here I’m heading back to New York. The Dublin Unitarian Church was sublime last Saturday. As always the Dublin audience was filled with life, they have something in their blood that is relentlessly positive. And the Irish Ensemble of musicians were superb also. This is such a special sound, with the organ coming from behind the audience and us coming from the front, it’s like something Pink Floyd would pay a fortune for (and so would you). Two extended standing ovations, and the entire church singing “Someone gave us something for free” left us all flying.
This week we had a boob in Facebook, when Clare posted a second event for the same one that was already posted – this Saturday June 18th at the Wexford St Iberius on the Main Street - Michael Q the man behind me in the I.T crew reminded her and suggested she delete it to avoid confusion, so Clare cancelled it instead of deleting it, and it was all over Facebook that the up and coming gig was CANCELLED. My phone rang off the bloody receiver, and I posted it numerous times about the error, before the panic seemed to subside. Bad news travels VERY fast. Maybe I should promote my gig at Joe’s Pub in New York on Thursday July 21st as cancelled? We might get a bit of urgency from my very laidback audience. I know that I encourage you to be laidback, but there is a point when we will all die lads!! That gig will have the New York Ensemble that you heard at the NY launch back in March, you know the songs now, come and lets have a sing song, with a bit of luxury in one of America’s top five venues, according to Rolling Stone Magazine.
The tickets are going well for Wexford, it’s going to be smashing….and it’s NOT cancelled. But Joe’s Pub is another matter, let’s start a rumour now.
The new album had 3 reviews in the Sunday National Papers here.
Love an all that jazz xxxxPierce.
