Great Show at Acre 121!!!
Herb Spice and the Cinnamonstix made another appearance at Acre 121, a new restaurant/music venue in Columbia Heights last Thursday. We were well received and had a lot of spectacular moments. There was some rapping and neighborhood fiddler 'ray' came and sat-in on "People Make the World Go Round". We got a lot of great video and pictures. This weekend full of a lot of great performances from Indulj on Saturday with 4DC Band and later that night with Yamomanem at the Bayou for their early Mardi Gras party. It was packed and haven't sweated that hard in a while!!! The weekend was brought to a close at the Acadiana Restaurant with a Yamomanem formation. This performance was a perfect end to the weekend. I always enjoy performing here because the staff is so friendly and the food is soooo good, New Orleans Shrimp Étouffée. I'm currently gearing up for my CD Release Performance at Westminster's Jazz Night. This performance will have UDC's Jazz Program Director, Allyn Johnson on piano, DC's most in demand bass player Eric Wheeler, and my Ace Terence Arnett on drums. This will also be the first time performing with the lovely Akua Allrich on voice. Ms. Allrich is a rising star in the Jazz and Soul scene. I'm very excited for this performance and I must thank Dick Smith for making this happen.
