Hi-octane honky-tonky w a …Siesta?!

Spring 2013 220

Well, even though it was gray & rainy outside, it was high-energy here inside w the hi-octane honky-tonk tunes from Sean Kershaw (Sean Kershaw & The New Jack Ramblers.)  I ran into Sean a few weeks ago while on-set filming a music video for a mutual friend of ours.  I knew once we started talking we had to have him on….and here he was!  He played selections off his first-album (“Coney Island Cowboy”) and some songs of his up-coming album, “The Aussie Sessions” (recorded in…you guessed it, Australia!)  We talked about chickens and music and all other things in between.  He’s a great songwriter & showman…definitely check him out.  They playing a bunch of shows all over NYC the next few weeks!

We also featured, for the first time, a play, “Lunch or Siesta!”  It was written by our good friend & frequent guest, Quin Chia.  Performed by Chris Reynolds & Alix Rosenfeld and directed by Reesa Graham (http://manhattanshakes.org/) it explored life & the random run-ins we can have…whilst standing on a street corner.

Hopefully, we will feature more short plays in the future.

For those that didn’t tune in here’s the recording of first half of the show… will post Sean’s second set soon!
