Extra, Extra: HUMMINGBIRD BRIGADE to play The Cellar JUNE 8/9, then record an album for REIGNING PARADE, new YouTube videos up, and Drinkify.org gets “The James Danderfer” all wrong while Jay Jones gets “The Clarinet” so right!

Hello, good morning, and welcome to the Saturday Morning News Post!

Readers, it is SO all about me today and I am loving it!

First off, my 11-piece, NOLA-brass-band-inspired-yet-definitely-not-a-NOLA-brass-band powerhouse jazz sensation THE HUMMINGBIRD BRIGADE is scheduled to perform at The Jazz Cellar next month, JUNE 8/9. As always, it’s going to be a party including some classic material, some new material, some awkward-band-vocals, some blisteringly hot gong action and plenty of bourbon good times!

This show is going to be especially fantastic as the band will be getting polished and ready to record on Monday, June 11! The album will be released Canada’s newest record label: Reigning Parade.

So reserve early here and don’t miss this show!

Oh yeah, in case my description of the band wasn’t crystal clear enough, you can check some video footage of our last show here and here.

Last but not least, drinkify.org has honoured me with a drink in my name. That’s right, apparently when listening to my albums, you should also be drinking akvavit and cranberry juice.

But wait a minute! That’s not my drink! I’ve never even tried akvavit!

Drinkify, if you’re reading, and I assume you are,… I’m more of a whiskey man, rye whiskey in particular, and if I had to name my drink I might have to go with the Jay Jones created, and perfectly named cocktail,… “The Clarinet.Well done Jay! (And thanks to front-end-web-designer and proud Hummingbird Brigade 2nd trombonist “Slappy” Mynett for the introduction!)

Well, that’s enough excitement for me. I gotta go and finish some more material for the June 8/9 shows!

Thanks for reading and have a great week everybody!
