2020 - Current Status 

Hi everyone!  Hope you are staying safe in these trying times.  It seems like my life has been at a standstill for awhile, but here is what's currently happening.  I have been doing a weekly broadcast on my Facebook page Saturdays at 2 p.m.  I recently completed Live Session #21, so that gives you an idea of the length of time - New Jersey was shut down for about 4 - 5 weeks prior to my starting this.  These programs are free and 'public', so anyone can view them.  I don't ask for tips, because so many…

General News Update! 

Hi Everyone!  In updating my website, I realized I haven't posted any 'official news' for quite awhile.  That doesn't mean I haven't been very busy.  You can always connect with me on Facebook for my up-to-the minute events.  Here's a summary:  I'm in the house band of the Greenwood Inn Open Blues Mic (Wednesday nights).  I play frequently with Chinacat Jubilee - a Grateful Dead inspired happening, and am a member of The Truckin' Company, which plays music of Little Feat, Traffic, Allman Brothers, and the…

New Video - Cheap Cigar 

Just a quick note to let you know I have some new video posted on Youtube of my band Cheap Cigar.  Our singer Lisa couldn't be there that night but we have two guest singers filling in on a few of the songs.  Other songs are just the core band.  There will be more in the next week posted both by me and the videographer, but here's a short playlist to get you started: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTXw9zrLKyoF1i4VqEjwsRfeB4lRqlfRf

A Maelstrom of Music! 

Today on Facebook I called my schedule a "Maelstrom of Music"!  In what I thought would be a slightly slower summer, I have gigs coming up not only with my band Cheap Cigar, but also with Travis Bickle & the Enforcers (sorry - private party!) and with another local band called the Deadbeats, which you may be able to guess plays a lot of music of the Grateful Dead.  But even more exciting, after spending the last two years NOT promoting my music/albums etc. I have a 'mini tour' that has come together
