The Portland Guitar Society is one of the great things about living in Portland, Oregon.

CD Release Party at the Alameda Brewhouse
"TRIO" CD Release Party - 6:30-ish
4765 NE Fremont Street in Beaumont Village
Portland, OR
(503) 460-9025
Price: Free

Sean Vinson (bass), Kyle Owen (drums) and I will be playing the music from the new CD "TRIO" at the Alameda Brewhouse on NE Fremont in Beaumont Village on Tuesday December 10 beginning around 6:30. I describe the music as Electro-Acoustic Americana—12 original pieces divided evenly among rock, blues, jazz and pop.

The Alameda Brewhouse is a family-friendly restaurant/pub with really good food and a variety of house-brewed beers and ales. So come for dinner and stay for the music. It's a school night so we won't keep you up late.

"TRIO" will be available everywhere in early December, and of course we'll have CDs on hand the evening of December 10. Meanwhile, you can listen to song samples here on the site.

Thanks for everything, see you soon--

JD
