Tour News: Petite Blonde II – 25th Anniversary – Spring 2018

In 1992 I had the idea to put together a band of like minded musicians and do my first big solo tour of Europe. The Music was to be a “no holds barred” approach to performing live. Pure energy mixed with contemporary ideas.

I called this Band “Petite Blonde”. Dennis Chambers, Victor Bailey, Chuck Loeb, and Mitchel Forman. We recorded a live CD called “Petite Blonde” during this tour.

I’ve formed a new band to tour once again under the same premise. No holds barred. Petite Blonde II is: Bill Evans, Ulf Wakenius, Dennis Chambers and Gary Granger. The tour dates are up with a couple more coming soon. See you on the road!
