The Weekend Today Show with Rachel Millman
This past weekend I accompanied vocalist Rachel Millman on The Weekend Today Show (WNBC New York) along with bassist Mike Visceglia and keyboardist Daniel A. Weiss. The above shot was taken during soundcheck, I believe.
It was my first time playing on a show like this, and I had no idea what to expect. But the moment I walked into the studio everybody was incredibly friendly and laid back. We taped our performance Saturday for Sunday's show, and Saturday morning was a very busy news day. Not only was there coverage of the disaster in Japan, but a terrible bus crash north of NYC had everybody in the office on their toes. Despite all the tragedy, or perhaps because of it, everyone at NBC welcomed us and really enjoyed the performance.
If you weren't awake in time to see the performance air just before 7am on Sunday, you can see the video on the NBC website.
Those of you in NYC can check out Rachel Millman and the band this Saturday, 7pm at the Living Room on Ludlow.
