If you've progressed from Edison wax cylinders of your youth via the heady innovations of phonogram, reel-to-reel tape, cassette, compact disc, minidisc and digital download and have ended up streaming your music wirelessly onto a tiny hand-held device then you'll probably be familiar with Spotify already. If not, you should give it a try. Either way, if you find our artist page and click "follow", you'll be notified whenever we do cool stuff like create playlists or share other music we like. It should go without saying that we still need you to buy our LPs and/or CDs - who knows how long the internet is going to last?
Thanks to everyone who came out to see us in NOLA, Fort Collins, Denver, Brooklyn, New England and Pennsylvania, and to all our talented musical guests, including Euforquestra who did such a great job opening the last seven shows & introducing themselves to many of our East Coast fans in the process. We’re back home now (in three different countries) taking a two week break before we meet up again on the West Coast to do a short run of shows in June which will take in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Oakland, Napa, Jackson Hole, Manhattan, Pittsburgh, Rochester NY and Chicago. In that order.
Having survived our 9th consecutive JazzFest in New Orleans we now embark upon a healthy week in beautiful Colorado, during which we play Fort Collins (Aggie Theater, Thursday 5/7) and Denver (Cervantes, Fri & Sat 5/8 & 5/9). Next weekend sees us return to the Brooklyn Bowl for four shows before we hit the road for a string of consecutive club dates around the North East.
We kick off our May tour with two special JazzFest late-night shows at the Joy Theater in New Orleans on May 1st & 2nd. In addition to our previously-announced special guests, Ziggy Modeliste and Jennifer Hartswick, we will also be joined by Robert Walter and Adryon de Léon on Friday night, as well as Mike Dillon & Natalie Cressman on Saturday night. Should be a lot of fun!
The following weekend we’re due to hit Fort Collins & Denver (2 nights) before heading across to the NE to play Brooklyn Bowl (3 nights), Fairfield, Portsmouth, Burlington, Cambridge, Baltimore and Philly before finishing up in Indiana, PA where we headline the Delaney Chevrolet Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival on May 23rd. See our tour page for details and ticket links.

Meanwhile Eddie is keeping himself busy mixing the new album (release TBA later in the year) and organising the Denver Payback which happens March 20 & 21 at Cervantes and features Eddie with Ziggy Modeliste, Oteil Burbridge, Robert Walter, Gabe Mervine and Matt Pitts.
Our winter tour finished up at the Hard Rock Cafe Live in Las Vegas where we played to an unexpectedly enthusiastic Monday night crowd. Big thanks to everyone who came out to see us in Jackson Hole, Arcata, Chico, Sacramento, Mill Valley, Petaluma, Tahoe, SLC, Boulder, Frisco, Aspen, Durango and the Gem & Jam Festival in Tucson. Thanks also to The Heard, who opened for us on most of those shows, and who gained a lot of new fans in the process. We’re spending the next couple of months apart - time with families, a new album to mix & design, side projects to work on, etc… Eddie has some exciting gigs coming up in Denver - check his Facebook Page for details. The next NMS live shows will be at the Joy Theater in New Orleans for the second weekend of Jazzfest with more May USA dates TBA here soon.
Just arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, where we play at the State Room tomorrow (Tuesday) night. We’ve had some great shows so far, notably in Jackson Hole, Mill Valley & Petaluma - which all sold out - and in Tahoe, which almost did. The Heard from Chicago have been doing a fine job opening the shows, and/or playing a rocking after-party set. We’ve been skiing twice (without Pete) and are planning to go again tomorrow in Park City, UT. Next stop will be Colorado (Boulder, Frisco, Aspen, Durango), then the big bus takes us to Tucson, AZ for Gem & Jam Festival. We finish the tour a week from today at Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. See tour page for all dates.
