We talked about their upcoming show at the Stoughton Opera House on March 28th, the way an album is tweaked and selected and since she is a local to Madison, we talked about how special it will be to have her heels in on “home” turf and all the guests she will have in the crowd that helped shape her along the way.

Those who catch the show will hear things known and new and maybe even something for one of these future albums. We talked about how he does a mini maGic show as a meet N greet with 20 people who sign up ahead of time and how he has been in the middle of a transformation……I also want to that Chad of the Rebirth Brass Band for ringing in and preppin’ us for the party that will be at The Sett this Thursday when RBB rolls into town fresh off a Mardi Gras way as part of the Isthmus Jazz Series….We talked about the feeling of a Grammy in the hand, and how when the band makes it to your town….they bring New Orleans with them to your place….we also spoke about…YES…a new album….he clued us into some of the potential names…..I can’t wait to see them and find out….and you’ll be the first to know riGht after that.
