I’ll be playing the “live” portion of “Country Music Night”, dipping into my stash of “old-school” country tunes and other songs about what goes on out past where the sidewalk ends from 7-10pm, followed by DJs spinning more contemporary country tunes from 10pm ’til closing….Check this “facebook event” link for more details: https://www.facebook.com/events/615833745537526/

Friday, Jan. 17  8-11pm    The Corner Pocket Saloon, 950 Delaware Ave., Palmerton, PA   My first paid gig in the upper Lehigh Valley. The Corner Pocket is a funky, dive-y neighborhood bar…definitely my kinda joint :) The bar recently changed management, so the old sign with the former name “Rausch Haus” is still on the front of the building. Heads-up…the Corner Pocket is a “smoking permitted” bar, so if 2nd-hand smoke is a problem for you, better wait until I’m playing a smoke-free venue. Also, the kitchen isn’t fully operational yet, so food choices are limited – bar-size pizza and hot pretzels are about it :)   Better get some supper before you head to the bar :) All that aside, the Corner Pocket looks like this could be a fun gig.   https://www.facebook.com/Corner-Pocket-Saloon-112222063506653/?epa=SEARCH_BOX
