Dear Friends,
Franglais (Myself and Bobby Sexton on guitars, Monica Smith on fiddle, and
Eve Seltzer on vocals) will head back to Bar Reis this Wednesday,
April 23rd for more rollicking hot club jazz and the only weekly gypsy
jazz jam in NYC--please join us! The schedule is as follows:

8 pm-ish: one set by the band
9:30 pm-ish: jam session for whomever cares to join us
11:30 pm: push-up contest (seriously)


Park Slope's Bar Reis, located at 375 Fifth Avenue--between 5th and
6th streets--is accessible by the F, M, and R trains at 9th Street and
4th Avenue. The bar has a nice selection of draft and bottled beer,
some good wine, and talented mixologists (Wednesday nights we have Mo,
who in keeping with the spirit of Franglais, has changed her name to
Meaux--at least on Wednesdays). No kitchen, but they do have an
impressive collection of take-out menus.

Hope to see you there!

Cheers,
Ben

    Hi,
    This was a great set, and a fun room, except at the end when the dj from downstairs could be heard (AGH). I had a great time jaming with shepp and ryan and zar, all of whom are great fun to be around, and great players as well. We were also joined by john padden and a friend from NJ, who both sounded great- so 5 guys with guitars and a bassist- GOOD STUFF!
    THanks guys! come back soon!
    B.
