BLOGGING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT

Yes I am always writing new blogs but that’s just me. I hope some of you who take the time to read these are enjoying my words.

(Ironic, since I do instrumental music for a living…) Read more

OLD AND NEW

Happy 2017 to all of you, first and foremost! Yes, 2016 was a bastard to us for various reasons, mostly due to the loss of too many musicians over the course of the year. But we have their work that keeps them alive for many generations to come…

Onto happier things… Read more

IN CASE I DON’T LAST TIL MIDNIGHT…

I hope all of you have a safe and happy 2017!!!

I GOT A FEVER

No, really…I do. Hit me out of nowhere last night. I felt a cold coming on but then my face decided to feel like it was on fire. So I have been guzzling Robitussin and sleeping like the cats all day.

Kinda like being a pretend rock star! Read more

SIMPLE GREETINGS

Hoping whomever peruses my website will have a Merry Christmas!!!

IN STORE FOR NEXT YEAR

Had a band meeting recently, hadn’t had one of those in a long time. Mainly because I had been so busy between my trio and Mary’s Basement (as you know, Jimmy and Tommy also divide their time between both bands as well). But when the dust finally settled, we convened at Jimmy’s house and got down to brass tacks.

Brass!? Moving up in the world… Read more

ANOTHER GIG FOR THE BOOKS

As a musician of many years (too many to admit), I like to challenge myself. When Mary’s Basement was asked to play at the Wyckoff Y last night, I said “Yeah sure!” But of course when life hands you lemons…

You ask for Ice-T. Read more

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

On this date back in 2015…when dinosaurs roamed the earth…

I released a new album after waiting and waiting since 2011 called LAYERS OF TIME! And the free world was safe, even for a few minutes!

LAYERS OF TIME released on this date back in 2015.

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!!!
