Folks, the third week of January 2015 is going to be insane.

First and foremost, the Ed Palermo Big Band comes to WORLD CAFE LIVE in Philadelphia-Thursday, January 15

I’m working feverishly on this show as I type these words. Philly is my old stomping ground, having seen MANY of the bands that I pay tribute to to this day.
Of course, ZAPPA will be the focus on January 15 at WORLD CAFE LIVE.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 17-Napoelon Murphy Brock makes his return to NYC’s Iridium night club. My big band will be sizzling hot just 2 days after our Philadelphia gig. The match-up of my band and Napoleon is like no other!

Again, the focus will be Zappa with some Todd Rundgren thrown in.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 18-IRIDIUM-The Ed Palermo Big Band featuring Rob Paparozzi debuts their new cd release, ELECTRIC BUTTER- the music of PAUL BUTTERFIELD AND MIKE BLOOMFIELD.

This is our official CD release party!

Finally, there’s the FALCON on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7. Just a week and a half ago, we played our annual Christmas show there. I hope that all of you get to watch the video of that show. It was one of our best. I believe the zappateer website may have it.

The Feb 7 Falcon show will be a “theme show”, but it’s going to be a surprise.

So, there you have it. Sorry for the long email but at least now you won’t hear from me until March:)

Thx so much to all of you who bought my OH NO, NOT JAZZ t shirts and ELECTRIC BUTTER cds! I have plenty left of both (along with my 4 Zappa tribute cds) so let me know if you’re interested.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everybody!!
