TALK TALK

No I am not going to talk about 80s new wave but if you got the reference, give yourself a star.

COMING TO A CLOSE

I should be playing at the Brighton Bar tonight. But I’m not. For reasons I will not get into, I had no choice but to drop off the bill. It sucks because I love playing there, it’s one of my favourite rooms. Fortunately, the promoter understood why I had to cancel but rest assured, a future show will take place in 2019.

Biting my tongue here but moving on…

WHAT’S OLD IS NEW

Went to my 30-year high school reunion last night, and while I admit to being on the fence about going for a long time, I gave in and glad I did.

Yes I can be a stubborn mule at times. Read more

THIS SHOW ISN’T TIL MARCH BUT…

Yes they said it couldn’t be done but I will be back at Starland Ballroom (Slayerville, NJ) on Friday March 22, as guests of Warrant.

Joining me on stage to pound out the rhythms will be drummer Steven Fortgang and bassist Adrian Calonico. Same guys who played with me at Dingbatz recently, so you aren’t seeing double. Pretty sure I will get a 30-minute set time so I will whip up a set list that will steamroll everyone.

In a nice way.

Tickets can be purchased through the SHOP page here for $22.50 each. I wanna see tons of support, so get crackin’!!!

 

PROGMETALFUNK IN CLIFTON

Played another gig at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ last night and it was definitely very cool. Always nice to step on stage and let it rip.

Isn’t that why I play music in the first place? Read more

SWEATIN’ TO THE MOLDIES

Had rehearsal yesterday with drummer Steven Fortgang and bassist Adrian Calonico and it went quite well! As many years as I’ve been doing my own brand of weird-ass progmetalfunk, it’s always interesting to hear other musicians interpret the songs.

I’m lucky I remembered some of them myself. Read more

BUSY WEEK AHEAD

Hard to believe this is the last week of October and also that this year has pretty much zipped past. Wasn’t it yesterday we were shoveling snow and I was recording a new album?

Okay forget the snow part… Read more

INTERVIEW RESCHEDULED

Hey everyone! Received an email from DJ Loud saying that he’s under the weather and asked if I wouldn’t mind rescheduling the interview that was to happen tonight. I said it was no problem at all. Once he picks a new date, I will go ahead and post on various social media pages, and on here too!

Also received an email from Rick Bethune at Checkered Pedals. He said he received another order for the signature Slippery Gypsy pedal! This is very good news! This means people are genuinely interested in making cool and weird noises 🙂 I wanted to make a more pro-shot video but apparently people like the shoe-string budget clips I filmed. I’ve also been asked by a couple of bassists if I would make a video of my effects pedals with a bass in hand. Would be interesting since I am not really a true bass player (Billy Sheehan won’t lose sleep over me) but hey, I am up for a challenge!

Anyone have a bass amp I can borrow?

 

 

 

UPDATES…AND YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO ASK!

EARLY XMAS FOR ME (AND FOR YOU TOO?!)

Received two new toys recently from Rick Bethune and Checkered Pedals and both were definitely worth the wait.

Early Xmas for me…and can be for you too!
