This will be our only show this summer as we’re all super busy with other artists and recording our new album. Very happy to join Zo! on his very special evening as he releases his album ‘Manmade’. This event is sponsored by the great folks at Art of Cool Project.

The Raleigh-based exploratory jazz trio had the Hive buzzing Friday night. It didn’t take long for head-bobbing grooves to wash over the audience in the upstairs bar above the Busy Bee Cafe. The incredible set was a mix of original tracks and covers from the trio’s latest record. My favorites were the original cut “Liquid White Chocolate” and the absolutely epic pairing of Roxette’s “Listen to Your Heart” and the Police’s “Roxanne.” Both of those tracks are available as a free download on guitarist Chris Boerner’s website, chrisboernermusic.com.
Drummer Nick Baglio was impressive, playing drums and keys simultaneously. Along with keeping the beat, and at times taking over, he sprinkled in awesome synths on keys while dropping one stick to use both hands if he needed to.
Super stoked to play this one for our friends at the Art of Cool Project. Advance tix are available HERE. Show starts at 9:30 and is going to be a good’n. Labour Love is located at 807 E Main St. Durham in the Golden Belt area.
Come join us for an evening with The Hot at Nights at Casbah in Durham, NC. Casbah is a sweet listening room. Great sound and a great vibe should lend itself well to doin’ our thing. Advance tix are now available.

The Hot at Nights proudly present a new series of free downloads we’ll be offering. Reel Talk is the simple product of the three of us with a 4-track tape machine in my basement – The Burlap Palace. It’s 4 tracks – bass, guitar, drums, and sax – no more, no less. Each volume will feature two songs – covers deconstructed by The Hot at Nights in our own special way.
Vol. 1: Roxanne vs. Roxette – DOWNLOAD NOW (right click and save on some browsers)
1. Listen To Your Heart – Roxette – We’ve taken a lot of liberties here with this song. We wanted to create a giant segway from massive deconstruction to epic ending. The intro is drastically re-harmonized, the verse is in 6/4, and we have some more epic re-harmonization on the chorus. By the time we get to the bridge and final chorus modulation we’re a bit closer to the original.
2. Roxanne – The Police – It’s in 15/8. We’ll leave it at that.
