waterside plaza gigs


the music business never ceases to amaze me - I got a call from the person who books bands at Waterside Plaza in Manhattan (NYC). It's a nice apartment complex on the eastern shore of manhattan just north of 23rd street. they have a nice outdoor music series in their piazza on wednesday nights in the summer. Just confirmed today is a date for The Harlem Speakeasy Orchestra on the 25th of July. It's open to the public, so come on out - it's a great vibe. 7-9pm.
but that's not what amazed me - she asked me if I wanted to be a judge for theiramerican idolsend-up, which is gonna be called Waterside Idol - basically an amateur (I think) talent contest.
I've done a lot of different things in the music biz, but this takes the cake on one of the most surprising. I think it will be a gas.
