Your Invited: Michael Schaefer @ Astoria (Addison Jam)

Hey Jazzers, 

I'm happy to announce that I have a new gig this Tuesday night at the Astoria Wine Bar here in Addison Circle. This is an important gig for me because I'm trying to sell the idea of having live jazz in this venue. If you are free on Tuesday night and can stop by, I would love to have you join me and play a little for the people here. It's a small venue, will probably only fit a trio or a quartet. So we might have to rotate on stage a bit if many of you show up (as I hope you will). Also this is a non-paid gig, although I've seen other acts here and the patrons appreciate the music and tip accordingly. I'll give all the tips to those that show up and sit in. So come on out and lets play some jazz. Hope you can make it.

Also, if you plan on coming out, please RSVP, that way I know how to arrange the stage area. If nobody can make it, I'll be doing the gig solo. 

Thanks,

Michael

    Why would 7pm be better for you? Just curious.

    I think the start time of 7 would be better. Hopefully we can get some drums to show up :)

    I just found out that I have a green light to do this on a regular basis. I'd love some feedback on dates, times, layout, everything.

    Are you doing this on a regular basis? Sorry I was out of town last week.

    All ... I am very sorry at how rough that was. That's entirely my fault. And I wish I had more tips to hand out to everyone. I made a little money solo after everyone left. If you guys come out again, I'll throw some of that grease into the tip jar for you guys. Least I could do for coming out. I think it will make a big difference when we have bass and drums. Just have to figure out how to make that happen in that small venue.

    Everyone, dress warm. We may be playing outside, depends on how cold it is.

    BTW, here is a Spotify playlist that I created of the tunes that I'm likely to call, in case anyone would like to see that. http://open.spotify.com/user/strathound/playlist/6uN6r8qv8ik53K8O5XcNaj
