Ty says:

California Feetwarmers are playing tonight at Clifton’s (6/2). LA Swing Barons will be playing there tomorrow (6/3).

Steve Grody says:

If anyone is curious, Nico Duportal, at Joe’s tonight, sounds VERY danceable on all of him Youtube cuts.

beeceeinla says:

he was. it was a great show.

Steve Grody says:

Of course I remembered, after posting, that I saw him some months ago and he was indeed terrific. Much of the material he plays is in the vein of Chicago Blues, but in the various tempos that are great for swing.

Juliann B says:
