WHEN THE MUSIC’S RIGHT…

Made my debut at the Chance last night in Poughkeepsie, NY and it exceeded my expectations like never before! Despite the freezing temperatures (you try lugging gear and not breathing!!), the crowd was big and VERY receptive.

When the music’s right, the vibes follow.

ONE FOR THE BOOKS

Played the gig last night with Cara Crash’s band and it was definitely cool. A few of my friends came out and of course they all had to ask “You play punk?” But after the set, they all agreed that I pulled it off well. I may not be Johnny Ramone but I brought a lot of energy to the stage and it showed.

But onto the Uli Roth show this Saturday!!!

STORY BEHIND “MARBLEHEAD”

As I stated in the previous blog, I got to debut a brand-new song at Mexicali called “Marblehead” and it received a good response. A friend/fan of my music named Tom Feeley filmed the song and sent it to me for review. I said it sounded really good, as far as overall video/audio quality and that I wanted to post it on my social media pages.

Just got home from a most kick-ass night of shred guitar at Mexicali Live. My ears are ringing, so that means it was a fun night.

Had rehearsal with Cara Crash last night, and it was definitely a good time. When the announcement was made last week that I would be filling in on lead guitar for her band, it raised a couple of eyebrows.

RADIO INTERVIEW AND OTHER GOODIES

Tomorrow I will be doing a pre-recorded interview with Scotty Perry for iHeart Radio and Z93 in Poughkeepsie, to promote the upcoming show at The Chance. Tickets are selling decently but need to get a few more sold or else I won’t be asked back. Just being honest here. The link for the app is below, and the interview will be aired Thursday in the 4pm hour:

CRASHIN’ AT MEXICALI

Yes I seem to be playing Mexicali quite a bit, and that’s a good problem to have. The staff are great, the food is awesome too. And of course it’s one of my fave rooms to play due to a great sound system and the stage itself is just nice.

I am playing there March 4th opening for Michael Angelo Batio, so why I am there again? Read more

SNOW DAY FOR THE BAND

Cancelled rehearsal today, as I am more concerned about the safety of my bandmates than going over my songs. Will definitely have at least one next week or the week after, to get amped up for the shows soon.
