Inspired by equal parts Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and Tom Waits' Nighthawks at the Diner, we finally put this project together...and the rehearsal was damn fine!
Here's the official skinny:
Comedian Mario DiGiorgio (Comedy Central, Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival) will share the stage with accomplished musicians Derek Phelps on trumpet (Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears); drummer Andy Beaudoin (E.C.F.A.) and Joe Sokolic on upright bass (Hard Proof Afrobeat).
While integrating music and comedy is not entirely uncharted territory, we're excited to hear the results of a 45-minute comedy act backed by three solid musicians.
Kool kats and kittens welcome.
