I’m excited to be playing drums with The Wag on Saturday, August 17th in Belmar, NJ. We’re playing the role of the Beatles and Tommy B & the Deep Blue Sea is going to play the role of the Rolling Stones. This will be a fun show! I hope you can make it!

On Monday, August 12th more than 40 local musicians will pay tribute to the music of Sting and the Police at a beautiful setting on Hoboken’s waterfront. New York City will be the backdrop for over two hours of music.
I’m excited to be playing drums on five songs – “Englishman in New York,” “Shape of My Heart,” “All This Time,” “Fields of Gold,” and “It’s Probably Me.”
Each song features a line up of different musicians and singers. My bandmates from Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors – Sean-David Cunningham, Jonathan Andrew, and Maribyrd – will all be participating as well!
Hope to see you there!

This Friday, December 14, I’m playing with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors at one of our staple spots – Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken, NJ. This is a three hour gig, where you never know what will happen. Rumor has it we have a few holiday tunes prepped and ready to go! Ugly sweaters, too? Who knows!

I had a fantastic time playing at the Hutton in Jersey City on Friday, December 7, 2018. Ty Tuschen and I played for two hours straight. It was a great time exploring some new covers and original songs. Looking forward to being back there again soon.
Back in October – which btw feels like yesterday – I played at the Gallery opening of NonLinearKnitting Studios. This is a really terrific spot in Jersey City. I’m excited with what is happening with art and music in this space! Here’s a video of me performing, Howlin’. Enjoy.
I’m looking forward to being back at The Hutton on Friday with Ty Tuschen joining me on electric guitar. As always, no cover charge, but plenty of delicious foods and beverages to be purchased and consumed.

In case you missed it, you can now stream my performance on www.blowupradio.com as part of Banding Together 2018. On Friday, October 19th I traveled to Blow Up Radio’s HQ to perform as part of Banding Together 2018, a benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America.
Tonight, I’ll be live on www.blowupradio.com at 8:45pm. It’s part of a larger webathon which is part of Banding Together, an annual benefit run by Lazlo of BlowUpRadio.com for the Spondylitis Association of America. It gives me great pleasure every year to be part of this fundraising effort and to donate my time and music to this cause.
Can’t wait to play with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors again at Finnegan’s in Hoboken. Join us on Friday for 3 sets starting at 10pm! We’re working some new covers into the mix as well as a nice mix of original music. It’ll be the full six-piece lineup, which is always a treat.
Fun fact, this photo was taken in Finnegan’s!

I had a fantastic time playing for attentive listeners at the opening of the NonLinear Knitting Studio Gallery. If These Walls Could Talk was a celebration of local art and music and it was a pleasure to play.
In the spirit of the show’s name, I covered Tom Petty’s, “Walls No. 3.” Here is a clip of it from Instagram. (BTW, you can follow me on Instagram @joshbicknell.)
