ONTO 2017!

What a year overall! We lost a lot of musicians this year more so than any other year that I can recall. But rather than discuss the negatives (though Prince’s death still kills me every time I think about it), I’d rather focus on the positives.

But 2017 can’t get here soon enough! Read more

NEW ENDORSEMENT

Nice way to wrap up 2016…or should I say STRAP up?

Bad pun, I know.

But I am now an endorser with Lock-It Straps as of tonight! I discovered their straps at Alto Music back in September, liked the feel and the durability, so I got home and looked at their stuff online. Saw the Bob Masse series and emailed the guys at Lock-It. Ordered the Green Lizard strap, used it for some gigs, really put it through its paces. And they said “Send us a hi-res pic of you on stage using the strap and you’re in.”

And just like that, I am in!

You can see the post on my Facebook page as well as Lock-It Straps FB page.

Now strap it on!!!

LAST SHOW OF 2016 CANCELLED

Received word a little while ago that the show for this Friday at Mexicali has been cancelled, and will be re-scheduled for a future date. Jimmy and I issued refunds, and thankfully everyone understood.

So instead of this show being the last one for 2016, I can proudly say that the King’s X gig at Stone Pony was the final show of the year! What a way to end a great run! You can all peruse the TOUR DATES page and see all the past performances for yourself. I still have two more dates with Mary’s Basement (one is a private party; the other is this Saturday at Blue Moon) but as for my trio…ACT LIKE I’M ON TOUR 2016 is a wrap!

Onto 2017…Jan 14th, that is 😉

ANOTHER ONE FOR THE BOOKS

Every year I play an intimate gig at A&M Music Center in Lyndhurst, NJ. This year was different as I asked to do an electric set, as opposed to the acoustic sets I had done in the past.

Glad I made that decision. Read more

LIVE AT THE IMPROV

Being a musician is hard work, lest you talk to some old-school fuddy-duddy who says “That’s not work!” I proved it Friday night at Stone Pony and again last night at Dingbatz that thinking fast on your feet is hard work.

Glad I wore sneakers both shows! Read more

CLEARING THINGS UP

I made a post a week or so ago about needing a fill-in drummer for the King’s X show. While I was taken aback by how many drummers heeded the call, it was still overwhelming and of course one question was being thrown at me:

“You need a new drummer?” Read more

SHOWS SHOWS SHOWS

ANOTHER YEAR AROUND THE SUN

Yeah it’s a cliche now but I couldn’t think of anything clever…

Maybe “Another day on the right side of the ground?”  Read more

Friday November 18th at Stone Pony. Tickets are $20 each through me. Get yours now because this show will sell out…

METAL IN DELAWARE

My trio made its debut on Delaware soil last night, and while it was definitely a Spinal Tap moment for me, a good time was had by all.
