SideXSide with Levi Kreis & Eric Himan

Dates for the upcoming SideXSide Tour have been announced, and I think if it is at all possible, you need to get to see a show. Over the next few months, Levi Kreis is teaming up with buddy Eric Himan and singer/songwriter Jason Antone for a couple of engagements on Monday nights, when Million Dollar Quartet is taking the night off. Sandwiched in between Tony Award-winning performances, you can catch them in Chicago, Montreal, Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia. This tour is bound to be something incredibly special. I already reserved my spot for two of the stops, and would hit all five if I could.

From the description of the show, I would guess the show will feature the music from Levi's latest effort, Where I Belong. That works for me, cause I think it is a brilliant album, with lots of music that moves me and makes me wanna move. I reviewed the album here. And the first single from the album, Nothing At All, was topping the video charts at LOGO and VH1. You can see the video here. It will be my first chance to see Levi live doing his own material, as I was lucky enough to see his electrifying performance in Million Dollar Quartet.

It won't be my first time seeing Eric Himan, and I have kinda lost count of the number of times I have had the privilege of experiencing his amazing energy. I know Eric is about to release a new album, Out With The Old, a combination of older and new music worked out for a piano, not the guitar I have grown accustomed to Eric playing. Well, I already pre-ordered it here, so I would guess he would play some of those songs, as well as maybe a song or two from his collaboration with Jimmy Adams and Angel Adams.

They are being joined on the tour by Jason Antone, and I have to admit I don't know a lot about him, but I have checked his music out on YouTube, and he has a voice to match those gorgeous eyes. His music tends toward the Pop & Dance side, so it will be interesting to see what he brings to an acoustic environment.
