With the release of two albums back-to-back (Cass Clayton Band in May, 2018 and Play Nice in July, 2019), it’s been an exciting and creatively fulfilling time.

Okay where is the set list? Is it Tenor Madness, Mercy mercy mercy, I live the life I love and I love life I live, Do it again, Blues in the night?? I'm from NJ New York and never seen a NY jam where jams are rehearsed. I seen them call out the key with Les Paul. This is not a paid gig. I've never been to a blues jam rehearsed except in Vegas and they let me wing Sugar Mama. We brought the house down. I was asked back up to play another song. If you want to be organized post the charts on a site to pull down. I'm not coming to listen to get a set list, to then go rehearse and come back and play for an unpaid gig. Too much work. I've been with the opening band and we headlined BB Kings in New York its no jam. Those clubs are gone. When Les Paul died the club closed the next week. You can go to Arturo's pizzaria and listen to the house band play for tips. Blue Lou Lou Merini may stop in. They call keys and go. I'm not joining your band I'm coming to play. Those are my thoughts. I get it know the song and be ready to play it correctly. I'll get your inflection because I'm good. My teacher Robert Bonfiglio is from NYC so if you want me to learn something I can run it through him and he will make me chart it but muscle memory is where it's at. I'll meet you half way. Deal?

Time for a pause from the being that makes it possible for you to exist in this dimension. You can lead a song writer to to waterfalls of notes, but a pencil must be lead.

Efforts count for something
