A Bunch of Fall 2013 Musical Doin's

Alternate Instrumental Mixes

On Saturday, September 28 2013, I performed solo acoustic sets (alternating with Sara Hartman) at the Southampton September Fest, then hustled over to the Sag Harbor American Music fest to strap on the bass with both the Complete Unknowns and Joe Delia 'n' the Thieves. One of my fave moments was performing songs with Sara in both my and her sets, and having her whip out some ukelele soloing in a few of my numbers.

Both fests were a real joy, well-run, and all attendees reported having a great day. Many thanks to all the organizers involved with both of the events, including James Egan, Kirsten Lonnie, Kelly Connaughton, Kerry Farrell, and John Landes.

The Cedar Beach Blues Music and Arts Festival folks have been nice enough to have Mick Hargreaves 'n' The King Guys perform on Saturday October 5th 2013, on the main stage at 3pm in Mount Sinai, NY. For me and sister Jen (backup vocals) this is a fun homecoming in a big way. Mike Bifulco, Gary Dawson, Jeff McLary, Don Mangels, and Chris Mehos round out the King Guys onstage. Get all info at the official site:

I've got a duet show with Joe Delia at the Highway Diner & Bar (Sagaponak, NY) happening on Friday October 11th. Details are still coming in, but this is during the Hamptons Film Festival, and my sister has a big role in the film Blue Ruin, which is screening at the fest.

The last time around, playing with Pete Mancini (Butchers Blind) and Matthew Grimm (The Hangdogs) at the Old Mill Inn (Mattituck, NY) was a total gas. I return there on SAT October 12 9pm, this time with singer songwriter Bryan Gallo and 'King Guys guitarist Mike Bifulco. Right on the water.

Lastly, the MH 'n' The King Guys resume recording our first effort this month over at the Lantern Sound Recording Rig, AND it looks like we'll have a MH 'n'  KG's Holiday concert on SUN DEC 15th at the University Cafe (Stony Brook, NY), on a co-bill with Gene Casey 'n' The Lone Sharks, put on with the folks from WUSB-FM 90.1

See you around campus!
