Not a bad set. Somewhat crippled by leaving an important box of discs at home by mistake, but there's times when limitations make you work harder... And guess this was one of 'em. Played a few more cheesy/classic things than usual, but it worked well for the crowd. Good times.

Gig announcements and more fun constantly posted at my professional twitter... Spinning at least once a week somewhere in the Lower East Side.

For info on where this was, see the Pianos Website.
