general news on my artists

I prepping a mailout for JOE DENINZON'S LIVE WIRES.  Joe's music is very eclectic with funk, jazz, rock, blues, soul.... He's a violinist, vocally he reminds me of Jack Bruce except a lower register.  His website is www.joedeninzon.com

Dee Palmer is coming to New York City in September.  I've scheduled September 10 at the Cutting Room with Roberta Piket opening, so far, and we'll have two or three other New York City area dates for her.  
I'm 99% sure I'll be doing tour press for Mountain this summer.  There is a double live CD set from them due out on Fuel 2000.  Their website is www.mountaintheband.com.  Mountain today is Leslie West on mouth and guitar, Corky Laing on drums and Richie Scarlet on bass.   I've wanted to work with all of these musicians over the years.
From Tower of Power, I got a heads up from Keyboardist Roger Smith, that he's using a Portable Hammond B3 in concert.  In the next few weeks I hope to have a color j-peg that describes how he does it....let me know if you want this photo.  The Hammond B3 is an incredibly heavy instrument to carry around, the Hammond B3 P is a dream come true for keyboardists.
Tons of info on the whole band is at www.bumpcity.com.
