In a few days I will be flying to Holland to play at the Breda Jazz Festival so I'm quickly trying to update this site and get everything in order before I leave! At the festival I'll be playing with Simon Stribling's Hoppin' Mad Jazz Band. We have a set on Thursday and a set on Friday. And the rest of the time I'll be playing in what they list as "Festival Surprise Bands" meaning it's a set made up of various guest stars at the festival. I'll get to play with some people I've never met before and on one set the band will be led by my friend Jerome Etcheberry, who I worked on the Josephine show with in France! In fact I should see several of my French friends at this festival! Different people take turns leading the bands and I'll lead a "Surprise Band" on friday. Fortunately I'll have the rhythm section from the Hoppin' Mad Jazz Band with me so we should have a lot of fun! My full schedule is listed on: http://www.bredajazzfestival.nl/ If you go to the artist's page you can scroll down and find my name. I have 2 sets Thursday, 2 Friday, one on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Most of the sets at this festival are 1 1/2 or 2 hours long! It should be interesting!

If you're 'friends' with me on facebook, I'll try and document some of the trip there. (You can find me there as Katie Cavera and friend me.) I'll also look forward to posting much more on this site when I'm back next month!
Thanks for stopping by!
