Garland Jeffreys, Performing in Connecticut Soon!

I start to feel the excitement for an upcoming concert I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. The live event will feature the rocking sounds of Garland Jeffreys & The Coney Island Playboys at Infinity Music Hall in Norfolk, Connecticut on Sunday June 5th.

Here is the latest video from Garland Jeffreys, made to go with his new single, “Coney Island Winter” from the forthcoming recording entitled The King of In Between due to be released on June 7th. I hope we can buy a CD copy early that night and that Garland Jeffreys will hold a meet and greet after the concert with us 😉

“Coney Island Winter” was directed and assembled by Doug Webbhttp://wildinthestreets.info/ who created Garland’s Wild in the Streets fan site and opens with footage from the 1952 short film documentary “Coney Island, U.S.A.” It also includes samples from a 1991 episode of PBS’s American Experience (“Coney Island”) and the evocative 2010 short film “Coney Island Dream”, filmed and edited byJoshua Brown http://joshuabrownphotography.com/.

“The video captures the desolation, but also the allure, the fantasy and the humor of Coney Island that still fills my memories,” says Garland.

Coney Island Winter – Garland Jeffreys

I am very excited to share with you the brand new single by an artist I admire greatly, Garland Jeffreys, “Coney Island Winter”.

You can download it from Amazon or iTunes.

I love the photograph. We’ve never been to Coney Island, which is a real travesty. But thanks to you Garland we’re finally there.  We can smell the salt air and feel the sand under our shoes as we walk the boardwalk with you.

I feel the heavy coat of Winter peeling off my back and Spring very close at hand 🙂

Here’s what Garland shared about Coney Island Winter on Facebook today.

FINALLY!  The first song from the brand new album is released today: CONEY ISLAND WINTER!  I dedicate this song to to all my friends and fans who’ve patiently supported me through the long process of making this album.  I’ve taken to heart all your comments and kind words.  I look forward to seeing you on the road!  G

Garland, we look forward to seeing you live soon too!
