Kirtan Concert, Art Rock Ensemble class & 2013 Wishbone Residency

phil band Martyrs TG 2012

Thanks to everyone who came to hear Phil Angotti Band @ Martyrs the Friday after Thanksgiving (pictured above).  It was a great show.  I’ll have a couple video clips to post from the show soon.

Here are some upcoming events for me:

Friday Dec 14th Kirtan concert with Mike Cohen & Co. @ Bodhi Spiritual Center, 9pm.  I’ll be contributing electric guitar lines & atmospherics along with some very talented instrumentalists (Alexander Duvel, Steve Emmerman & more).  Chanting/singing en masse is powerful stuff & Bodhi is a wonderful place to experience it.  This is recommended for ANYONE–all ages, regardless of previous musical experience.  😉

New Classes at Old Town School in January 2013:  Art Rock Ensemble

Class starts Wed Jan 9th at 8pm in the East building in Lincoln Square. It’ll be co-taught by myself & multi-instrumentalist Bob Goins.  Come explore the music of Peter Gabriel, Roxy Music, Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Wire, John Cale, Bowie & more!  Early sign-up discount code is NEWYEAR13.  This is good through 12.24.12. Other classes I’m teaching include Guitar 4, Guitar 3 Rep (both at Lincoln Square) and Beyond Guitar 3 (at 909 Armitage).  Visit the link below for full class listing and more information.

Also, I’m very excited to announce my Wishbone Residency in 2013.  More details to follow soon, but essentially it’ll be 7 to 9pm the 3rd Sunday of each month and the shows are all-ages.  My first guest Sunday Jan 20th (the eve of the Martin Luther King holiday) is the fabulously talented Marc Teamaker (click link to preview audio).


Marc is a recent transplant from the NYC/east coast area.  He & I will both perform sets as well as perform with each other.  Visit Marc on Facebook.  Wishbone has amazing food & drink, a great staff, and a wonderful space for acoustic music with ample seating.
