I'm not sure how much the number of gigs in the holiday season is an indicator of the health of the general economy, but it is evident that there is a significant improvement on this December's calendar over last year!
Recently, jazz vocalist Wendy Nottonson, formerly of the Acton Jazz Cafe, migrated north to land a great gig at the new Pannaway Restaurant at 150 Lafayette Rd. (Rt. 1) in Rye, NH. It's called "Jazz Live" and runs from 7pm-10pm every Friday night, with different rhythm sections (including yours truly) backing her up.
The dinner menu is varied and delicious, with a wide selection of beverages, and there is no cover charge.
Look for the Rye Airfield Skateboard Park just north of the Washington Rd./Breakfast Hill and Rt. 1 junction.
Phone: 603-319-4200. Bassisit John Hunter and I will be backing Wendy up on 12/17/10 and again on 1/28/11. Come over for some holiday cheer!
