Holidaze and Schedule…

November 11th, 2010

Big shows this weekend- the 5-piece version of MiZ has two performances this weekend, on Friday November 12th at Kimballs in Williamsport and Saturday the 13th at the River Street Jazz Cafe in Plains, PA. Both shows feature the lineup of Mike Miz on guitar, Freeman White (Jam Stampede, Donna Godchaux Band) on keys, Bill Stetz on Bass (!) and AJ Jump on drums and yours truly on guitar and mandolin.  This band is sounding so good, and it’s so refreshing to work with original songwriters and even just front men without severe ego/control issues, there’s just way too much of that permeating the Reading music scene and hindering it in the process. The scene in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area is much more conducive to people working WITH one another, something I enjoy right down to my toes when everybody’s on the same page and know how to show respect for other humans.  Working with Bill Stetz again is a wonder, we’ve been working together for over 15 years by this point and he was an original member of Stone Poets and he’s is playing a key role in the development of this band which I’m very proud to be a part of it.   MiZ will also be at the Tin Angel in Philadelphia Friday the 19th, opening for Badfish at ABC in Harrisburg Monday the 22nd, and opening for Railroad Earth at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA on Saturday, November 27th. If you’re planning on going to the Railroad Earth show you can purchase discounted tix by going to Please buy your tickets by going to and logging in under username: Miz (capital M) and using the password: rrearth (all lower case) then proceed to purchase tickets. Good month for MiZ as recording of the album continues, check the schedule for adds……

In other news, I’ve picked up a monthly ‘Third Thursday’ residency at the Stonersville Hotel outside Reading, PA Thursday, December 16th starting ….Check in every month…My weekly solo acoustic Sunday residency continues at Zeno’s in State College, PA, 9PM…

Also note that my show with Julie  in December at Bixler’s is canceled, I’m sure she’ll be sitting in with me at Stonersville from time to time in the future…
