"He's Steppin' Out" in 2012
Here's a funny photo of Brian Whitaker and I from 2004, right about the time he came on board as my comic partner (replacing Jimmy Lawlor, who appears on the 'He's Steppin' Out" CD) for live performances of He's Steppin' Out". Since then, it's been an ebb and flow of performances, sometimes with long spaces in between. Throughout this time, though, there has been a tacit kind of "keeping the faith" about it all, along with a general sense of just rolling with it. There has also been an undercurrent throughout this life of this project of it's inherent value and timeless application. It doesn't rely on riding a popular trend, rather, at the right time, (I continue to believe) it will create it's own (trend). It remains, now, as it has been since Brian came on board: one performance at a time. This Sunday, January 29th, 2012, we will present "He's Steppin' Out" at the Leonardtown (MD) Church of the Nazarene, at 6pm. Our new theme is "Joe want to perform a piano concert for you ... but Brian has other plans". Looking forward to a fun evening (and more to come)!
