Hello Everyone! We (Bruce Baker and the Altered Presence Jazz Band) just performed at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro on November 9. It was a success (if I do say so myself) - we had a wonderful turn out - standing room only - and the band members played wonderfully! The standing trio is Alex Smith on drums, Michael Alvidrez on upright bass, and myself at the piano. We had a guest sax and flute player join us - Robert Kyle - who also played his heart out, and a guest singer and lyricist join us for two tunes as well - Jacqulyn Landon. Jacqulyn's website is "in the works." Alvas Showroom is a small, comfortable, and intimate venue with fantastic acoustics and a wonderful team who runs the show. The folks who make up the Alvas team are some of the nicest and hardest working folks around. You must visit them soon - they have a great line-up. We will be back at Alvas soon, and I will update my calendar accordingly.
