Hello to longtime fans & friends
July 5th, 2017 is my last day living in New York, and then I go down south to Boynton Beach, Florida. Yes, it is sweltering down there in sunny Florida, and I intend to bring some additional heat with some sizzling New York style blues, jazz and other roots music to the sunshine state.
I hope to see as many of you as possible right here in New York or New Jersey before I go. Please stop by and say goodbye, or give me a hug or handshake. And I do have some "Sleight Of Hand" cds on hand now. Only $10.
And I do hope to come back now and then to see family and friends, and to do a little playing in the coolest blues venues in the great metropolitan area. Until we meet again, be well, and remember, I love you to death and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it.
Here's my schedule.

Time: 11AM-1PM EST
For two hours you can hear and see Evan Ginzburg interview, interrogate, grill, and possibly waterboard Robert Ross from 11am to 1pm EST on internet radio. One of the things we may discuss is why it’s called “radio” if the show can actually be SEEN. Anyway, it’s LIVE and anything can happen, and probably will. Robert Ross is a two time NY Music Award winner & NY Blues Hall of Fame inductee, and a vocalist, guitarist, slide guitarist, & harmonica player. Evan Ginzburg is a radio & tv host, film producer, writer, actor, wrestling aficionado, teacher, and all around GREAT guy. Just navigate to: VillageConnectionRadio.com to view the show.
