Annabelle Marie, formerly known as Annabelle Cruz, will be joining Jim Hudak at his concert at The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA on Sunday, September 10th. She will provide violin, piano, and vocals at the performance. Dennis Tuohino, the talented bassist/percussionist has already signed on for the engagement, and Jim now has a strong three-piece musical unit in place for this historic event. Billed "An Evening With Jim Hudak," it provides an opportunity for Jim to showcase his original material, particularly songs from his new CD, "Bridging Textures." "Annabelle's incredible talent, experience and energy make her a wonderful addition to this show," commented Hudak. "It will be fun to play some music with her again." Annabelle is best known for her three year stint as a Lickette in the legendary band "Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks," with whom she still performs occasionally. But much of her time is involved with the internationally renowned children's choir, Voena, which she directs and tours extensively with around the world. Jim and Annabelle met in 2002, when he performed as Voena's pianist at their Christmas show in Oakland, California. The momentum for this important concert continues to build. Jim promises an array of twists and turns to the evening along with a special selection of material. A good crowd is expected, so order your tickets early by visiting The Freight's website at
