Ali, her family and I were there last year and it is an experience that rocks you to your very core.

Ali and I have been fortunate to catch Patrick in a few incarnations of his bands, the grandest (and the first we caught) being The American Gypsy Experience, at Fresno State, then a few months later at Arte Americas, we saw him open for B.B. King on New Year’s Eve ’08, then last year’s CD Release Block Party, and just a few months ago in a more intimate, unplugged setting at the Revue in Tower. He’s got incredible range, masterful skill, and he shreds bow strings like Charlie Daniel’s and Jimi Hendrix’ love child. You do not want to miss this!
