Greetings!  It's been a very busy, creative and productive year.  I have so much to be thankful for - here's wishing you and yours a great holiday season and a very happy and safe 2011.

Rob Birdwell's Gigs of Note in 2011

January 15, 7pm - "Between the Cracks" with Beat Poet Robert Briggs at Corvallis Art Center - I'll be playing some jazz with a small group of outstanding musicians, including pianist Dana Reason.  Tickets and more information...

February 27, 3pm - 5th and B play a Klezmer concert at Odd Fellows in Corvallis.  We'll perform many tunes composed and/or arranged by master Klezmer musicians Mike Curtis, Dave Leslie and who knows, maybe even my little "Amazing Flying Pickle" offering!

April 1 & 2, 7:30pm - Chris Botti and band with the Corvallis-Oregon State University Symphony at LaSells Stewart Center in Corvallis.  Rob Birdwell, conductor.  Get your tickets soon - this event will sell out!

TBA:  October 2011 - a Harry Potter concert featuring the music of John Williams and the Corvallis-Oregon State University Symphony is in the planning stages. Rob Birdwell, conductor.

After trying to manage an email least for the last 8 years or so, I've decided to retire it.  So if you got this message via email and would like to continue getting updates on my music offerings, gigs and the amazing musicians I collaborate with too - like the "5th & B" crew of Dave Storrs, John Bliss, Page Hundemer, Dave Leslie, Ben Mutschler, Page Hundemer, Mike Curtis and/or Viking & the Svens - then by all means, make sure to connect with me on Facebook and/or MySpace!

Svens at Bombs Away December 18 2010

This will be a holiday show complete with festive songs and surfin' melodies.  Fun for all!  I'll be giving away my own  bootleg-autographed CDs and I'm sure there will be lots of other stocking stuffers! Happy holidays!
