Van Halen

House party Saturday April 8 reminder/information

A reminder, plus some more information:


WHEN: Saturday, April 8 from 8 pm to 11 pm.

WHERE: My house at 561 Public Street, Providence, RI. Directions at the end of this message.


  • My cousin DAVID will be playing songs from the Ballad of America with Chris and me for the first set.
  • Then CHRIS MONTI and I will play a bunch of stuff, including the a couple of accordion tunes which I am pretty excited about!
  • STEPHEN SWIFT, aka djswifty, performing under his nom d'mp3 MC COPULATION, making his triumphant return to PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND.
There may be other stuff too. Who knows?

I'll provide some beer, soda, and snacks. There will be no charge but there will be a hat for people to drop money in to if they like the music. Also, there will be CDs and books to buy for those with inclinations in that direction.

Also I want to get a headcount for


Julian's is a nifty place on Providence's West End (318 Broadway, Providence, RI 02909) that has a nice selection of food, including selections which should be edible by vegetarians, vegans, picky eaters, etc. Their standard dinner menu is at http://www.juliansprovidence.com/menuDinner.asp, and they also always have a wide range of specials.

If you want to join me and (I hope) the other musicians for dinner there at 6 pm, please reply and let me know so I can make a reservation.
