Danny Kalb Quartet will return to the great music club Jalopy Theater on Friday October 21 at 9:30pm. Danny will be joined by Marc Daine on guitar, Dave Richards on bass and Mark Ambrosino on drums. This performance is a great chance to catch Danny locally before he is off and about touring this Winter in support of his new release due out in February 2012. The title is as of now still TBD.
Danny Kalb & Band will be one of the featured performers at the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival on July 30th in NYC. The Festival which begins on July 28th and inclues Taj Mahal, James Blood Ulmer, The Growlers, Henry Butler, Amy LaVere and many others will be in NYC at the World Financial Center. For more info on Danny’s show go here.
Don’t worry. Danny is free on permanent blues bail.
Just referencing the great Don Wilcock article title that is in Blues Wax describing Danny’s recent show at Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility in Rutland, Vermont on Friday, April 1, 2011.
Don writes it so well, no point saying anymore, except that Danny used the same instincts that forms his music – to engage the men who came to hear him play. Talk about a potentially tough crowd. No small feat. You can read Don Wilcock’s article here.
Danny’s newest release, due out in late August 2011, will feature Danny playing alongside old Blues Project band mates, Al Kooper and Roy Blumenfeld. Primarily recorded in September 2010 at the Madhouse studio, the album (title TBD) is an eclectic mix of folk, blues and jazz, that provides quite a few surprises for the listener.
Danny is currently booking his tour dates in support of the album. It is not clear whether the three Blues Project alumni will be performing shows together, but if schedules can be coordinated, hopefully this will be a possibility.
We will continue to update the progress towards the release and Danny’s touring dates as they become available.
Sojourn Records in conjunction with The Livingroom will have its first showcase at the Lower East Side venue broadcast over the airways to millions of listeners. From the Living Room to the Loft began it’s 5th season August 2010! The show airs on XM’s ch. 50 and Sirius ch. 29 airing twice a week for two weeks. We will be forwarding the times for the shows as soon as we receive the information.
