Comin' Home, and RISK performs at Minglemint!

Today I am pleased to share a pair of videos and an invitation to come perform our music at Minglemint!

The evening performance is Friday, January 13th, at 7:30. The evening will be a concert with Pieter and Kim as a duet, at Minglemint, and now with RISK too! Kim says "Lots of good energy"!

I have two versions of Comin Home to share, the first an instrumental version, similar to what we do. The second is Mel Torme singing it. Enjoy!
