KPLU Video and Thank You 4Culture!

A few weeks ago McTuff visited the KPLU studios in Seattle for a live broadcast ahead of our Bellevue Jazz Festival appearance. The guys played like a dream and luckily a film crew was on hand to capture it all in HD! The video above is of one of my favorite McTuff tunes “Smack,” and you can find two more tracks on KPLU’s YouTube page.

happy4cultureI also just got word that I’ve received an Arts Project Grant from 4Culture! The funds from the grant will allow me to write for, rehearse, and record Happy Orchestra over the next year AND compensate everyone in the band for their time and talent. Keep an eye on the Happy page of this site for updates.

Thanks to KPLU, 4Culture, and all of you for the support! Great things to come…
