    Hhhmmmm…two basses on an old rock and roll hit, huh? The imagination, versatility, and passion of these players never ceases to amaze.

      Hi Lynn, thank you so much for the kind words! I’d love to perform in Philly, my team is working on it. Be sure to join my newsletter email list to stay informed or you can keep checking my show schedule here. We performed at the Museum of Art several years ago and had a blast! I’m glad to hear WRTI is playing my music, I had no idea. I would love for Robert and Jimmy to hear my version of this song, hopefully it will happen at some point. -Yoko
