Solo at Elixir

Yesterday morning, Jacob Sacks (my best bud), told me he was doing a solo keyboard gig at a little juice bar in Manhattan called Elixir. I was surprised that he didn’t advertise it or if he did, I missed it. I didn’t know what to expect (and I think, neither did he). It was a… Continue reading Solo at Elixir

A Brief Scare

On Sunday, Chris (the love of my life), was feeling really bad. He had lots of stomach pain and he couldn’t move. At first we thought, ok.. just some bad heart burn or food poisoning. He’ll throw up and then he’ll be fine. Well, he did throw up but, he wasn’t fine. I told him… Continue reading A Brief Scare

It’s gonna… Continue reading Last Minute Gig

Bad Ass Brahms!

Last night my best friend, Jacob took me to see a performance of the Brahms’ Quintet in F minor for Piano and Strings, Opus. 34 (1862). The performers were Christopher Taylor and the Ying Quartet. All I have to say is that NOTHING beats a live performance of music and Johannes Brahms is a bad… Continue reading Bad Ass Brahms!

Indian Food, Finally!

Finally there is a decent Indian restaurant in Park Slope. Kinara is located on 473 5th Ave in Brooklyn. I noticed this restaurant a couple of months ago and was surprised to see an Indian restaurant located there. Saturday night after my gig with Jacob Sacks and Ben Monder, CY, Jacob and our friend Aga… Continue reading Indian Food, Finally!
