L.A. this weekend, a new Sonia video, and more!


Greetings friends and neighbors and lovers of the winter wonderland!

OK, so it hasn’t really been a winter wonderland. At least not in Brooklyn…cold and rainy is more like it– but that never stops the music!

And there IS music! Here’s what we’re serving up today:

Dan Zanes and Friends in Los Angeles this weekend!

+ A new video from Sonia de los Santos!

+ A Dining Room song from Dan Zanes and Claudia Eliaza takes off over the weekend!

+ Upcoming shows in Northampton, MA and Vienna, VA and Whitewater, WI and Toronto, Ontario!

I’ll be returning to The Wallis Center in LA for two shows with Dan Zanes and Friends this Sunday, January 29th at 11am and 2pm. These shows are always highlights for us and I hope you can join us to sing and dance with wild abandon! If you have a song request be sure to send it our way! Just reply to this email and we’ll get on it! Find tickets here.

Sonia de los Santos just released a beautiful new video for the song Esta Es Tu Tierra (This Land is Your Land) and here’s what she had to say about it:

“Let us remember that ‘THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME’.
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from and however you want to live and love. We’re all here, we’re all in this together and saying this to each other and making our neighbors feel at home is how we’ll make this country a better place to follow our dreams. Here’s my version of this beautiful and inspiring song by the great Woody Guthrie. I’m accompanied by my band, my New York family and closest friends.
Specially dedicated to the Cruz-McCormick family.”

Well put…..thank you, Sonia!

Check the video out here!

Claudia Eliaza and I sang my song “We’ve Been Down This Road Before” recently at Elena Moon Park’s inspiring Rise Up and Sing family concert here in Brooklyn. It sounded so good to us that we shot a dining room version of it for my FaceBook page. And it took off! Check it out here!
