The Devilfish will be doing its boogieish lifeaffirming thing at Nick-a-Nees this Friday night 2/1/2019 at 9:30. I need it like medicine. Boogieish just means we’ll play some boogies. Maybe we only do one boogie, but I’m really looking forward to that boogie.
Saturday 2/9/2019 The Chris Monti Trio will appear with Yacouba Diabate (an excellent Kora player from Burkina Faso, West Africa) at The Blackstone River Theatre. Doors at 7:30, show at 8pm. 549 Broad St, Cumberland, Rhode Island 02864
If you want to check out my current trio (we’ll be doing a set heavy on the west African music) and don’t want to stay up wicked late to do it and don’t want to go to a bar to do it, then this is the spot for you. The Blackstone is a beautiful sit-down grown-up music listening room. The parking is good, the space is great, the sound is excellent. The show is early, 8pm to 10pm. There will be nice ladies selling coffee and tea and snacks between Yacouba's set and our set. I hope you can come.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
I'm delighted to be playing the Pump House in South Kingston this Friday night. The really quite wonderful Morgan Johnston opens the show at 8pm sharp. I'll join her for a few numbers. And then I'll be doing a set on electric guitar with Theo Regan and Matt McLaren, and we'll have Morgan sing with us on a few numbers.
The Pump House is a really beautiful stone and wood venue that by day is a luthier shop and school.
Tickets are $10 at the door. There is a bar and there are also snacks available.
Thanks very much for reading.

ps Your longish winter beard does help keep out the cold but it does look a little scraggly; maybe you could trim it up a bit?
