Jim Hudak has announced the finalization of the ensemble of musicians who will perform with him at a special dinner-concert performance at Round Hill Country Club in Alamo, CA on April 28th, 2007. Dennis Tuohino, who has performed and recorded with Jim Hudak on numerous occasions over the past four years, will once again join Jim on bass and some vocals. Sue Draheim, a highly talented and experienced violin-fiddle player, will also be performing with Jim that night. Sue's musical resume includes performances with countless legendary musicians, including John Renbourne, Jaqui McShee, and the greater Pentangle/Fairport Convention musical family, among many others. Look for her to add some vocal harmonies on a few songs, too. Finally, Gary Minadeo, a long time Bay Area resident, will perform on a wide array of percussion instruments for the Round Hill performance. He, too, has performed with many bands and musicians, and brings a wealth of talent and experience to the table. "Getting Dennis back again, and adding such superior players as Sue and Gary is awesome," commented Hudak. "We clicked nicely the first time we played together, and it's just fun getting together with this group of commited, talented musicians." It's possible that the quartet will book additional engagements in the future. But for now, they're working to make their first ever public performance together at Round Hill Country Club a memorable event. "It will be great to play for what feels like a homecoming concert for me," says Hudak. "I'll know virtually everyone in the audience, and I'm told that tickets are selling fast, so it's a show I'm really looking forward to. To get a chance to perform with such a talented group of players such as this is like icing on the cake."
