I was invited to sit in with the Dave Williams jazz band and sing some Nina Simone and blues standards. This is such a treat for me given I mostly perform solo these days. The additional cool factor was that the gig was at a Long Beach thrift store called the Tithing Closet -- we sat on furniture that was for sale! Chef Sarah Lim provided a delicious vegetarian supper & after my set, I enjoyed the immense skills of Orange Peal Vibrations (vibes & marimba -- must be seen to be believed).
