I'll be doing a word set during the Drake show tomorrow night on August 11 at:

Cafe Habana/ 102 21st Street/ Philly/ 11pm-2am $6

If you haven't heard of Drake yet, they're a hot classjazzical drum-n-bass sophisticated modern music ensemble. Listen to sample work here.

The players are:

Monica McIntire- cello

Dave Ramsey- trumpet, vocals, composition

Brandon May- piano

Josh Machiz- ContraBass (acoustic)

Matt Scarano- drums

There will also be a late late late jazz jam session w/ Lucian Dowdell, AKA 'THE TRUTH,' on drums... and of course, a tequila toast for trumpeter/vocalist Dave Ramsey's birthday.

See you there!
