Well spring is in full swing and as the weather warms the Hi-Fi are busy prepping for out door shows and festivals.
If you are a fan of CBC’s “Hot Air” program tune in Saturday and listen to host Margaret Gallagher and myself (Damian) as we listen to tracks off of our “Coffee and Candy” disk as well as some other classic jazz tunes that have inspired me over the years. I don’t think I made to big of a fool of myself. The last time I was on air with Margaret I called her Michelle and then promptly forgot how to play the Ukulele and sing at the same time. All in front of a sold-out crowd at the opening of a new CBC station in Kamloops. Well it couldn’t have be to bad cause they asked me back so tune in if you have a chance. The show airs at 5:05pm -May 10th.
Before we make the break into summer we are back at Hermann’s May 17th – 8-11pm.
We will also be at the TD Victoria Jazzfest playing a double bill with Toronto’s Alex Pangman on June 29th. The show will start at 8:30 and will be a full tilt 60 minute set in the ballroom of the Harbour Towers hotel.
Butchart Gardens asked us to play again this year. Bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy some good music in a beautiful setting July 2nd.
