Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0 – Saturday, October 28th

LedZeppelinEngagement2.0

I’m super excited to be part of the Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0. Playing version 1.0 on the waterfront was amazing (you can watch me playing drums on “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do? on YouTube), but I suspect bringing this event indoors to Maxwell’s will make it rock even harder. The event features over 30 local musicians coming together to play the music of Led Zeppelin. Don’t miss it!

Banding Together 2017 and Maxfield’s Recap 10/14/17

Doubleheaders aren’t only for sporting events.

This past Saturday, I spent the afternoon playing as part of the Banding Together 2017 fundraising show at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ and the evening playing with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors for three sets at Maxfield’s on Main in Boonton, NJ.

If you haven’t done so yet, please consider donating to the Spondylitis Association of America. As a fun way to donate, you can purchase a digital compilation album, which includes exclusive tracks from local musicians. I have a track on there, too!

Banding Together 2017: A Benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America

I’m thrilled to be part of this year’s benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America, Banding Together 2017. Lazlo from blowupradio.com organizes this successful effort each year. His wife suffers from Spondylitis, so this is a very personal cause for him.

Spondylitis is a genetic rheumatoid arthritic condition that causes inflammation and fusion in the vertebrae of the spine. To date BlowUpRadio.com has raised thousands of dollars for the cause, and raised awareness of the genetic disease which the Centers For Disease Control says affects more than 2.7 million adults in the US.

Want to help out?

There are two ways to contribute:

  1. Attend a Live Performance
  2. Purchase the Digital Compilation

Attend a Live Performance on Saturday Afternoon

Led Zeppelin Engagement Recap

On Robert Plant’s 69th birthday, over three dozen local musicians paid tribute to the music of Led Zeppelin. It was beautiful weather for a wonderful display of talent and energy. I was thrilled to be a part of it. Thank you to Jaimie DeJesus of ALEO Productions for curating and organizing such a great event!

Here are a few pics captured by Chris Capaci of Capacity Images. And below that, our performance of “Hey, Hey What Can I Do” with James Calleo on lead vocals and yours truly on drums. If the embedded video doesn’t appear below, click here to watch it on YouTube.

Led Zeppelin Engagement on Sunday, August 20

On none other than Robert Plant’s 69th Birthday, I will be part of a group of over 30 local musicians celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin. Organized by Jaime De Jesus of ALEO Music, this event will be a great cap to your summer weekend. As the sun sets, watch us play in front of the New York City skyline in Hoboken’s Frank Sinatra Park. 6pm. Free for all ages. I’ll be playing drums on Four Sticks and Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?

Can’t wait! Hope you can join us.
