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?

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!

BACK ON STARLAND’S STAGE

It took two years but I was back on the stage of Starland Ballroom and in the words of Irene Cara: OH WHAT A FEELING!

Yes I made a weird reference..deal with it! Read more

GOOD CONVERSATION

Last night I was on Danny Coleman’s Rock On Radio show for a live interview. Normally I do them over the phone but it had been a while since I’d done Q&As on the fly. So I drove down to Hightstown, NJ to engage in good conversation. Read more
