Still buzzing off of the show last night! Had such an incredible time playing music with @onlyernest and @jay_drumz101 for such an excited crowd at @ardmoremusichall!!! Listening to Mr. Stanley Clark's band was such a pleasure and he and his musicians couldn't have been nicer to hang out with afterwards. It's a beautiful experience every time at AMH! Can't wait until the next one...
