Guitar Pull with Christina and Jonathan

ChristinaJoshJonGuitarPull

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!

Maxwell’s Recap 05/04/17

A huge thanks to everyone who came to Maxwell’s last Thursday. Ty and I had a blast! Here’s a nice photo captured that night.

And here was the setlist. It was slightly modified due to special requests, like one for Springsteen’s “Atlantic City.” For the most part, though, it remains accurate.

Aloft Manhattan Hotel Performance Recap

On a rainy Tuesday, March 28th I performed a solo set in the lobby of the Aloft Manhattan Hotel in the Financial District. For three hours, I serenaded the visitors of the hotel bar and lounge. It was fun to stretch out and play a variety of covers and original songs!

I’m excited to be back there again on Tax Day, Tuesday April 18th!
