Come see me perform

Regina's Holiday Set
Sun Nov 28
9:00 to 10:00 p.m.
Uncommon Ground Cafe (Wrigleyville)
1214 W. Grace (near Clark)
Neal Alger on guitar
no cover


I have a gig this weekend. I'm worried that no one will come. I wouldn't have picked the Sunday after Thanksgiving for a performance, but that was the only day Neal Alger had free and he's my favorite guitarist to work with. We'll perform during the 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. timeslot at Uncommon Ground Cafe in Wrigleyville (1214 W. Grace, near Clark). I almost want to get on the phone and call everyone I think might be in town that evening. I want to say, "Please come to my gig. Every time I perform at Uncommon Ground I really enjoy it and am impressed with their excellent sound system and engineer, but I've never managed to fill the cafe even half full. Please come to my gig on Sunday night so I can reach half full or more." But that would be begging and would be unprofessional. I might do it anyway.

I'll perform mostly originals (including one brand new one, but I don't know why I'm saying it since it means nothing to anyone besides me and Neal. It amuses me when singers announce a song as "brand new" because for most of us our repertoire is so unknown that a brand new song sounds just like all the rest, so why bother announcing it?). Since it's close enough to the holidays, I'll also do one Christmas cover song that I'm sure you've never heard before and an original holiday song that I wrote years ago. It addresses a part of the holidays the mainstream never wants to pay any attention to: the loneliness of the season (in fact, I'd guess most people don't have a good time during this season, but I won't dwell on it).

So, if you're reading this before Sunday, Nov. 28th at 9:00 p.m. and you live in the Chicagoland area, consider yourself begged to. Neal Alger is an amazing guitarist and I'm a great singer, plus we're cute! And there's no cover, either, so stop by! (please)
