Joe's Pub

The New Standards return to New York City and the delightfully groovy Joe's Pub on Friday, May 22 for a 7:30pm show. It was Joe's very own legendary impresario Bill Bragin who first brought TNS to the pub’s distinguished stage (most recently, in last November’s stellar turn as house band for the star-studded Peggy Lee tribute show honoring James Gavin's book release on that sexy subject), as well as to the halls of Lincoln Center for standing-room-only crowds at their charming and burgeoning Holiday Show, now entering its third year in NYC. Don't miss this opportunity to see what eminent critic Greil Marcus calls "…a terrific combo. Everything they do is a surprise" live and stripped down to their highly musical, charismatic and entertaining core.

Love is the Law

From our friends at Twin Cities Public Television, the extended-version of Love is the Law from the 2014 holiday show, featuring the Batucada do Norte drumline and samba dancers Kellita and Ophelia, along with The New Standards holiday orchestra.


Leigh Kamman tribute

Leigh Kamman was a Minnesota radio broadcaster who meant a ton to musicians round these parts. This is the song he frequently opened or closed his show with. Can't tell you how many times, late at night, I would tune into this in my car driving home from a gig and know that it was going to be a mellow journey back home. Thanks to Twin Cities Public Television for capturing this video, and a big tip of the hat to the holiday show horn section (featuring Chris Thomson on bari sax and arrangement by Stephen Kung, on trumpet).
