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!
Last Thursday, October 12th, I played Maxwell’s Tavern Front Room with Ardith Collins on cello. It was great to share the stage with her again! A thoroughly enjoyable two sets of music. Thank you to all who attended. Hope to do it again soon!
I had such a great time playing at Sticks and Stones in Hawthorne, NJ for the Hope with Heart Benefit on Saturday, September 9th. The event raised over $2,200 for the kids.
The night was filled with art and music. I even sold two photographs. All proceeds went directly to the foundation. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the event, it’s not too late. You can still make a contribution at www.hopewithheart.org.
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.
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!
I had a great night playing for the patrons of the bar/lounge in the Aloft Hotel in Manhattan’s Financial District. I played a mix of covers and originals. Here was the setlist. Hope to be back there again soon!
