Latest Upcoming Gigs

More News on The Russ Spiegel Jazz Orchestra front: The response was enthusiastic about our last gig at the Gershwin Hotel and my thanks to all of you who made it out for the show. Our next monthly gig there will feature master of the chromatic harmonica and Brazilian music specialist Hendrik Meurkens Tuesday, July 14th, (Bastille Day for all you Frenchies) playing two sets 8-9pm & 9:30-10:30pm. The price is is $15, which, with 17 musicians in the band comes to less than a buck a musician - the best deal in NYC! Plus, if you come to the first set, you can stay for the second!
The Band:
Russ Spiegel: compositions, arrangements, guitar
Reeds: Rob Wilkerson, Alejandro Aviles, Arun Luthra, Dan Pratt, Andrew Hadro
Trumpets: Colin Brigstocke, Philip Dizak, James Smith, David Smith
Trombones: Michael Boscarino, Jack Davis, Andy Hunter, Darrell Hendricks
Rhythm: Art Hirahara (p), Yoshi Waki (b), Chris Benham (dr)
Special Guest: Hendrik Meurkens: chromatic harmonica

New York, NY 10016


I am "O solo mio" - solo jazz guitar, that is - Friday evenings 7-10pm at Il Porto Restaurant (known for its wood burning brick oven pizza!). Located directly across from the entrance to Steiner Studios. Hope to see you there.
