It's a solo opener but you may see a special appearance by BFG organist and longtime friend and co producer Mr. Martin Guigui. I'll be keeping you posted all week on the old socials so watch out!!


We can't thank you enough for making this years Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center show an epic one. The string quartet addition this year was an amazing experience for me as well as baritone sax wizard Luke Laplant.. A huge thanks to Michael Close for writing the parts and putting the quartet together. Kyle Rose on lighting was incredible as well. Thanks to ORCA and Chris Green, we captured the night on film as well as audio and are synching them up as you're reading this. We will be releasing a DVD of this sweet night of music.  Thanks to Jason Spooner from Portland, ME for opening the show. We will be joining him on April 1 in Portland, ME at The Portland Music Hall.
Hope to see you all soon and thanks for supporting LIVE music!!  It is a gift!

Spirithouse and The New Record!!!! 

So, it has been a long time coming and we have commenced the new record with the actual band playing on it! That's damn sweet. We headed down to Northampton, MA to Spirithouse, a hip studio run by Danny Bernini and Paul McNamara. We felt right at home as we recorded, ate and stayed all at the same joint. what a concept eh?? Tommy Diehl, Jeff Poremski and Jared Johnson and myself spent 3 days laying down the basics to 10 songs and it was awesome! can't wait to get back in there. Thanks to Danny and Paul and Chef Hank. FEEL and HEAR  THE BERNINI!!
