Thursday, November 2nd  Podcast

It's a cold morning in St. Louis. I'm up early thinking about tunes and unions and bands, watching the clock til its no longer too early to play guitar in my apartment. 

This evening I am playing in Webster Groves at Robust Wine Bar with Max Kelly and his bass. This is always one of my favorite gigs. The people at Robust are wonderful--staff and clientele. Max and I play tunes we love, and in the duo setting we each get a chance to really stretch on our instruments when it comes to solos. Yes, as gigs go, this is always a good one. Hope you can make it out!

Happy Halloween! 

I will be playing with Jeremy Segel-Moss and Eric McSpadden (and probably some additional special guests) tonight at The Venice Cafe, starting at 10:00. Tuesdays at the Venice were recently named one of things people in St. Louis MUST do! 

Monday, October 30th 

I am playing at Yaquis on Cherokee tonight. Definitely one of my favorite chill spots. Come on out, if you can. I'll be trying out some new tunes and getting ready for a week full of gigs! 

Also, I finished the second season of Stranger Things today. Holy moly, that's a great show!

Sunday, October 29 

No gig today -  the cold has more or less done away with the outdoor gigs, for a while. 

This weekend we start up our winter residency at DAS BEVO. We'll be playing every Friday night from 8-11, and there's no cover charge! I can't tell you how excited I am about this. This is the first weekly gig for Guerrilla Swing since we played brunches at Jazz at The Bistro. Should be an amazing experience! 

I've been working on a bunch of new tunes (well, new to me) -  Stardust, Round Midnight, Embraceable You, I Cover The Waterfront, and more. My plan is to bring new tunes to DAS BEVO every week. A few days before the gig I will post what tunes we'll be playing and in what keys, if any of my musician friends want to come sit in. We'd really love for the later sets of the shows every week to be jam sessions featuring the insane amount of talent we have here in STL. 

Yes, I'm chomping at the bit for this gig. Hope you will come out often to see the band. Also, DAS BEVO is beautiful. For years I've wanted to play there, and now we'll be there every week! 

Tommy Halloran performs music anyone would appreciate... He is to jazz as Uncle Tupelo was to country-western or Steve Earle to bluegrass. He possesses the schooling (both formal and hard-knocks) as well as the "chops" of a great jazzman... The basic truths of Delta-blues, swing, Gospel, and Bohemia are deeply rooted in Tommy's songwriting psyche. Like Randy Newman or Tom Waits (who seldom appear in the same sentence), his cooking belies his ingredients. He may not be "Chasin' the Bird", but he's certainly flippin' the bird as a top-rate improviser... Tommy embodies the original spirit of jazz. His blues, his bounce, and his ballads rival great musicians from any era.  - David Seymour, JazzReview.com (8/11/2005)
