Reminder and Recommendation
POSTED: November 1, 2010

For all you Idahoans (and those of you with access to a private jet), this is a reminder AND a last minute recommendation!

First the reminder:
Tickets are on sale now for my last concert of the year with my band, and it’s happening in my hometown. Matthew, Keith, Cliff, Scrapper and I will be performing Monday, November 15th at 8pm at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Boise Idaho. You can buy tickets online on my website,, or at The Record Exchange and The Boise Co-Op. My Boise shows tend to sell out quickly so hurry up and get your tickets now!

Now the recommendation:
Mavis Staples is one of the greatest singers of all time and she’s playing right here in Boise tomorrow night (also at the Egyptian Theatre), Tuesday, November 2. Mavis was the voice of the legendary Staple Singers, a group that not only had numerous soul/gospel/r&b hits during the ’60s and ’70s including “If You’re Ready (Come Go With Me),” “I’ll Take You There,” “Respect Yourself” and “Let’s Do It Again” but they also made a stunning appearance in one of my favorite films, Martin Scorcese’s The Last Waltz. The chance to see and hear Mavis Staples is a gift and the opportunity of a lifetime and you should not miss it. Her new album was produced by Jeff Tweedy from the band Wilco and it’s really great. I’ve been listening to it over and over again. I’m guessing you’ll be able to buy the new disc at Mavis’s Egyptian show and, who knows, maybe she’ll even sign it for you. Click here for ticket info…

I’ll see you on Main Street in Boise!!!
