There was meant to be an ACOUSTIC LOUNGE happening tonight at the Amsterdam Cafe in NOHO. Since some musicians flaked, we took the open slot last minute and will perform live, as a band.
Since it's late notice, I don't figure many of you are available to come out and visit us, live and in-person-like. So for all of you, feel free to tune in after 8.30 to see what we're concocting. We're keeping it loose and open, so if you're a talented singer/mc type, don't be shy to come down and muck around.
Here's a player to watch the show from the comforts of your living room.
It's been a few years folks and a few crappy record deals since I last called myself KAMARY PHILLIPS in front of an audience. Well, the deals are far behind me although some of the tragedy lingers on.
Recently, I met a fine, young gent by the name of Will Lovell and after he explained to me that he plays my beloved Contra-Bass (the giant bass Jazzers bang on) I was inspired to ask him for a little jam session. About 20 minutes later, literally, we were playing music together.
A week or so later, I figured it was time for our first public outing. You know, to test the waters. Here for your listening pleasure is that wonderful sonic experience, less one song (I forgot to press record) and rest assured, there will be more to come. I dare say, I'm returning to professional music and with a vengeance. My goal, to win a Grammy. Go on, laugh it up. I'm giving myself 3 years from today. Mark it on your calendars.
