Mac will be traveling to New Orleans for the 11th consecutive visit to Jazz Festival.  In the past he has jammed with many famous and not-famous musicians…if it’s jamming, he is in!!  Look for him at Irene’s and other local restaurants and clubs, as well as sitting in with the Storyville Stompers at Jazz Fest and other local bands at The Beach, Sing Sing, Snug Harbor, Cafe Negril, the Spotted Cat, and Maison’s (among others).

Fun is guaranteed for all.




Mac will be playing every Monday at Clyde’s Prime Rib, 52nd and Sandy.  Great menu and service, and a nice dance area as well.  He will be singing and playing keyboards, occasionally with a guest.  Featuring Jazz, Blues, Pop, Classic Rock, American Standards and lots of surprises.  Mac Clydes

Mac has gone into the studio with veteran sidemen Dave Captein on bass and Mark Blanding on drums and recorded an album of New Orleans flavored tunes, ranging from “Dream a Little Dream of Me” to “I Saw Her Standing There”.   Also included are two original rags, “Bells and Whistles” and “10th St. Piano Rag”.  Featured guests are Ben Rice on guitar and Paul Mazzio on trumpet.  Although Mac has recorded 8 albums before, this time he went full professional and the album sounds great.
