The Uptown Naturals have a new album!

June 13, 2016

For those of you who’ve been following my music, you know that I play with a group in the Yakima Valley called the Uptown Naturals. We’ve been playing monthly at Brewminatti in downtown Prosser, bringing in special guests each month to provide something new to regulars. We’ve also been recording each show. After 5 shows and 8 special guests, we’ve put together an album containing the best songs from each show.

Live Brew - Vol. 1 will be released this Friday, June 17th, and we’re celebrating by hosting a jazz jam at Brewminatti. Come on down, bring your instrument, bring some cash for your very own copy of the album, and have a great time with the Uptown Naturals as we help introduce students from around the valley to the ins and outs of a jazz jam.

On an unrelated front, I’m going on a bit of a hiatus over most of the summer, as I’ll be playing quite a bit with Eric Herman who just released his new album, Bubble Wrap. I’ve got a couple of fun side projects I’ll be working on in the meantime, which I will keep posting information and snippets of here as I can.

Happy summer, friends!
