But I fell out....and up....and all around.....maybe now I should consider falling in.....
So, I send these emails out once a month, right? Unless my dining room ceiling falls in and my mom shatters her ankle and I lose a couple friends in a sadly untimely fashion and I decide to start working in the video department at Mr Smalls…

Or at least that's what I tell myself. I also believe that jazz happens when you use music and your instrument to communicate complex ideas and feelings in a conversation that isn't spoken. You don't need words, (though they help, if your a poet and vocalist like me, they are as much a part of your instrument as much as a reed is to sax player or a string is to a bassist). Sometimes those conversations bleed into to other art forms, they shape them and the other… Continue

Oh friends.... what a fascinating, tumultuous and looooong winter it has been.... I'm happy to say I finally believe we may have actually reached the other side. The warm winds blow with the sweet tantalizing promise of beautiful music, graceful dancers and hilarious escapades. I don't trust the wind to deliver these things all by itself, so I have committed myself to helping make them reality.…

There was a galactic and planetary shift of consciousness last December. Continue
On the 21st we aligned with our solar system, the galaxy and the
universe....whether or not you spent the solstice hiding in a bunker
with a gross of rations and water purification tablets, in prayer with
drums and chanting to the moon or madly purchasing gifts to prove to
your loved ones that you really do care (I myself did a little of each, I
like to keep my bases covered), whatever…

Hello my beauties,
Just a quick line to let you know I am headed to Cleveland, Ohio tomorrow September 15, 2012, to sing with a new troupe whose company I very much enjoy. Kabarett Vulgare is a young group of performers in whom I have found some like minded defenders of the weird, the mad sexy and bizarre. Kabarett Vulgare also includes Macabre Noir, Deville D'Eggs, Nick Noir & Penny de la Poison. Together we've create a…

I hope you are well and enjoying this beautiful weather currently
blessing Pittsburgh. I am chugging along, making progress here and
there, making new fans wherever I can and expanding the community of
phabulous and phreaky jazz lovers, be it in a room filled with sideshow
dancers and burlesque glass walkers, in fancy high end jazz supper
clubs or gourmet burger joints with delicious parmesan dusted…

Hey to the hey to the hey hey!
I just got back from California, my cousin Jon Alloway's movie preview was a huge success. Standing room only, the Amoeba and I got to see old friends, sing to hundreds of new ones I've never met before, outside in February, in the light of stars, under palm trees and in kissing distance of the Dog Heads and Pizza Dragon. The… Continue

I hope you had a phabulously phreaky All Hallow's Eve, I know I did. My favorite costume was the psychiatrist dressed as the 1%. This week has been sooo busy, I have been ensconced in finishing my new holiday album "Merry ChristmaChannaKwanzaa Vol. 1.1." at Church Recording Studios and tomorrow night I shall debut my brand new "Pittsburgh XMAS" song at my show at the Tin Front Cafe in Homestead. I will be singing from 7 - 10 pm…

They say once a girl starts singing in a bathtub 20 feet in the air she'll never want to sing in the shower again.... And so I find myself booking transport to NY this weekend for the World Maker Faire at New York Hall of Science in Queens. But I have many songs to sing between now and then and I hope you may attend one of the events!…

It's true, Batman is filming in Pittsburgh, and I am pretty excited about it. In the heart of all the world's growing pains and insanity right now, somehow Hollywood manages to make it all shiny and new..... but as excited as I am for the caped crusader, I am far more thrilled to let you know, if you hadn't already heard.....

Sorry for the late notice, it's been a beautifully busy week! Christiane's music debut at the August Wilson Center was fierce and flawless, we packed the room! I remembered all my harmonies! Christiane was an elemental force! The band kicked it so hard I almost fell off! The weekend previous was spent with The Cadillac Creeps

Who loves the written word or a pair of pasties more than me? If you like the turning of a page or a shimmy and a shake, you should totally make it to both my shows this weekend.... If you don't like these things, I don't know how exactly you ended up on this list, or reading this blog, but I'm happy you are here, and hope we at Phat Man Dee Productions may enlighten you to the beauty of flesh and language.
