Another great weekend of Ellis Ashbrook music to report on: Two shows, one public, one private; the first from Café Europa in Greenpoint, the second, a two-setter from Bill and Mac’s Surprise Birthday Party in Woodbury, NY. Both were a blast and showcase the band in top form. Here are the complete Setlists:
