It was a fantastic event at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ, beginning with spoken word and moving into music. The energy was high and all six members of the Toll Collectors were there. A rarity for this band! We had a blast delivering an all-original setlist. Thank you to everyone who attended!
This was my perspective from the drum seat.
The band is all here!
An all-original song setlist.
Next show is coming up on Friday, August 4th at Maxfield’s in Boonton, NJ! Can’t wait!
UPDATE: We are officially rescheduling the show due to bad weather expected to touch down at any moment. The show will now take place on August 20th, 6-8pm. Same beautiful location.
Last summer, we paid tribute to David Bowie. Tonight, July 13th at 7pm, we celebrate Led Zeppelin. Over three dozen musicians will play on the waterfront in Hoboken. The sun will be setting to our west and New York City will be lighting up behind us in the east. I’ll be playing drums on “Four Sticks” and “Hey, Hey What Can I Do.”

On Thursday, May 4th, I had the privilege of entertaining the front room at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ. Ty Tuschen joined me for two sets and also ran his GoPro during the gig! Check out this video, which features a unique acoustic interpretation of Disclosure’s (feat. Sam Smith) “Latch.”
Back in 2013, Christina Alessi, Jonathan Andrew, and I decided to play a show together at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ (photo above). The idea was to collaborate on each other’s music. We each wrote our own songs, but thought it would be fun to back each other up as we traded the lead spot. Little did we know this would be start of the band we play in now – Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors!
On Saturday, we get to return to original form in a performance at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. Jonathan, Christina, and I will perform as part of a Guitar Pull, hosted by BlowUpRadio.com. This will be a fun show and allow us all to play our songs individually, but with a little help from each other.
Also, it’s Lazlo’s birthday! He’s the mastermind behind blowupradio.comand we can’t wait to help him celebrate!
