IRIDIUM
NEW YORK CITY  12/2/19
The Snowtire Tour started predictably - with snow!  Long, nasty drive into NYC!
 
Ever on a food search, we discovered this in Edison, New Jersey on the way to Kennett Flash.  Good eats, but WAY over the top!!

Tony's breakfast: 10 scrambled eggs and lox.

THE TURNING POINT
PIERMONT, NY 12/5/19
 
SSTRAND THEATER
HUDSON FALLS, NY 12/8/19
 
THE CENTER FOR THE ARTS NATICK (TCAN)
NATICK, MA 12/12/19
For this band, Natick means a brunch stop at Zaftigs Deli.  "The New Yorker" sandwich is a killer; only in Boston will you find Cissel Bread.  And of course, knishes to go for the long drive.
 
ONE LONGFELLOW SQUARE
PORTLAND, ME 12/13/19
The morning after - brunch at Becky's - the best Lobstah roll in a town that invented it.

PUBLIC THEATER
AUBURN, NY 1/10/20

The Peter Mack Quartet with Chico Freeman opened the show.
 
LOVIN' CUP
ROCHESTER, NY 1/11/20
Glamour of touring department.  Schlepping and setting up, and discovering that the band van badly needs tires.  Tomorrow, Sunday, we'll be in Canada with no chance of dealing with that.  So - down the street to Mister Tire.
 
BABY G
TORONTO, ON 1/12/20
 
Roadside stop on the way to Sarnia.
French Fries with a lot of stuff on them; we're told its a Canadian specialty.
 
SOMERSET ROOM
SARNIA, ON 1/13/20

Unusual room. But a couple of hours later it was packed.

Pete & Tony with promoter Tom Marshall
 
THE JAZZ ROOM
WATERLOO, ON 1/14/20
Not only have we never been to this very hip town, but it turned out to be one of the hippest jazz clubs and audiences we had on the whole tour.

Back in the U.S.A.

Border Crossing

Duty-free shopping mecca - Cuban cigars!

... and pick up a copy of this best-seller, "I wish I had never started smoking."
 
TOKEN LOUNGE
DETROIT, MI 1/15/20

 

Hey, they spelled "Levin Brothers" wrong!


Late-night reunion with our friend Mark, and some vodka tasting.  Recreation of the classic Stoly Pepper Vodka was a resounding success.  We can't divulge the secret, but we can say that batch #5 was the best.
 
REGGIE'S
CHICAGO, IL 1/16/20
Load-in through the back alley looked pretty scary.  But inside, newly converted from a record shop, Reggie's is a beautiful venue with excellent sound and lighting.
 
DISTRICT THEATER
INDIANAPOLIS, IN 1/17/20
Our new friend and best fan, Sarah Glasper.  What a smile!
 
LUDLOW GARAGE
CINCINNATI, OH 1/18/20
 
BEACHLAND
CLEVELAND, OH 1/19/20
We'd been pretty lucky for the most part, but on the way to Cleveland the weather caught up to us.  It was anything but a beach day at Beachland!  But inside - a beautiful theater and great audience.
 
SENATE GARAGE
KINGSTON, NY 1/25/20
Great to come back to our own 'hood, a hometown crowd, and this very special venue.

Daryl's sound guru, Peter Moshay in the recording booth.
Hopefully we'll have a live album coming from this show.

Great way to wrap up a tour - standing ovation from a full house.
