The APAP conference, which is huge, a ton of work and a great place to network, was the reason for going to New York City in the middle of winter, so we did. And since we were already there to do a showcase, along with fabulous drummer friend TIM BULKLEY and our new bassist friend, also fabulous, BEN CAMPBELL, we cabbed on over to BIRDLAND on our last Monday night to sit in for JIM CARUSO’S CAST PARTY. This is like Ultimate Open Mic, and a real treat of a show. JIM CARUSO is a fantastic entertainer and host, not to be missed if you’re in NYC on a Monday night. Well. Jon Hendricks happened to be there! Read all about our awesome encounter on our BLOG page. It truly was a moment in time we will always treasure.
