Earlier this month I had the honor of performing in the Town of Andover’s Chinese New Years Show, produced by the Chinese American Association of the Andovers. My contribution was a medley of popular Chinese melodies from the 1950’s to the 2020’s arranged in a jazz style.
Order of Performance
This medley consisted of Yao Lee’s 1956 hit “The Spring Breeze Kisses My Face”, Wang Qi’s 2020 hit “The Shepherd of Keketuohai” and the main title theme from the popular 1980’s crime drama “Shanghai Bund”:
This was a wonderful night of music, dance and culture and I am so glad I had the chance to participate in it!
Well this was a pleasant surprise. My downtown busking apparently attracted the attention of the Shop Dine the Andovers blog! This is actually the 2nd time I’ve been featured in this local guide to what’s hot and happening in Andover and North Andover. I am truly blessed to live in a community that has so much creative energy going on. Click the link above to read the full post.
Thanks to everyone who came on Thursday night to enjoy an evening of live music in downtown Andover. It was a perfect night weather wise and it was great to meet and talk with everyone! Special thanks to Ann Ormand for the opportunity to be a part of this summer music series
I’m excited to be part of the 2022 Andover Summer Jams Series! I will be perfoming as Andover Sax Guy in front of Old Town Hall in Andover Thursday, July 7 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Come out and grab a outdoor table at La Fina or Pazzo, or simply grab some ice cream a J.P. Licks and have a seat on one of the benches to enjoy some jazz, blues, bossa nova and American Songbook tunes. See you there!
I am excited to announce the first single from my upcoming album Esprit de L’escalier has dropped and is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, and many other streaming platforms!
