Banding Together 2019

I’m happy to be participating again this year in Banding Together, an annual benefit run by Lazlo of BlowUpRadio.com for the Spondylitis Association of America. It gives me great pleasure to be part of this fundraising effort and to donate my time and music to this cause.

If you donate $10 or more, you’ll receive a code to download an exclusive compilation album that contains a brand new recording of my original song, “Until You Let Me In.”

Here’s the link to donate: https://www.spondylitis.org/webathon

I’ll also be performing on the live webathon, which will be taking place all weekend long – Friday, October 18th through Sunday, October 20th. You can catch me on Sunday at 6:40pm live on blowupradio.com.

The Sting Engagement – Monday, August 12th

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!

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.
