Have you ever heard of Songwriters Unite!? The front-man of our special guest band this week at Spirits has, since he’s the current producer. Russell Leon  – not to be confused with Leon Russell, although he *did* open for him once according to his bio – joins us this week in band format, appropriately named: The Russell Leon Band.

Mike & I performed at one of the Songwriters Unite! events that Russell hosts just a few months ago – in January – and had the pleasure of meeting and hearing him as a solo act at that time. We’re excited to hear the self-described electro-acoustic sound of the band when they join us live at Spirits!

Check out some tunes on his website – – I enjoyed the dreamy, trippy, tone of “State of Mind” – the title-track of his current release – and then come check out The Russell Leon Band live at Spirits – Sunday, March 4th @10pm!

And don’t forget to bring your guitar and play a few songs yourself! Mike and I will join you on drums and bass, and backing vocals. A keyboard is also available – and often someone to play it with you (if you don’t play it yourself). Or, just listen while you enjoy an Open Jam Sunday Special: $5 pint or a $7 appetizer! The staff are great (woo! Krista!), and sometimes they even get up to sing or play a few! It’s a great way to start (or end) your week, depending on how you look at it.

See you at Spirits!
