David Cole and the band are always playing a series of gigs in the inner DC, outlying Metro, West Virginia, and Maryland areas, Trying out new material in preparation for CD being released very soon. (Details forthcoming)
We're happy to be playing at small and large venues. We love the vibe performing "Live", and either place is a great place to work on standards and new stuff in front of a friendly crowd.
Word of warning: Dave himself asks that when you come see us be prepared to be bluesed out of your seat! and hey, thanks for the energy, it makes us perform even harder!
