The principal horn player of the Lakeview Orchestra wrote about our performance for Public Radio: “Even though I have played hundreds and hundreds of concerts, there are few times I remember being overcome with emotion — but the night Lakeview Orchestra collaborated with 2nd Story and I heard a story about triumph over adversity, the rush of excitement made it challenging to play ‘Nimrod’ from Elgar’s Enigma Variations.”

I’ll be telling a story alongside all sorts of musicians, comedians, and writers including Wesley Stace, Todd Barry, Robbie Fulks, Jon Langford, John Roderick of The Long Winters, Sam and Archer of The Sea and Cake, and my friend Joe Meno. It will be crazy. I cannot even. Tickets are here:
