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.

Thanks to everyone who came. Hope to be back at Maxwell’s soon!

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!

Listen to a Live Recording from Banding Together

After a battle with traffic on the NJ Turnpike extension, I was able to make it to Lazlo’s Banding Together live acoustic music marathon at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. If you haven’t done so already, please download the compilation record to donate to the Spondylitis Association of America.

For those of you who missed the performance, you can now listen to a live recording below. If the embed doesn’t appear below, click here to listen directly on Soundcloud.

Pianos Recap – 06/14/16

On Tuesday, June 14th Ty, Ardith, and I played the Pianos Upstairs Lounge. We had a nice turnout and a great time playing for everyone. It’s such a joy to play music with such talented and down-to-earth musicians. Thank you for joining me, Ty and Ardith!

Here we are, getting our music on.

Toll Collectors at Finnegan’s Recap 05-06-16

On May 6th, I took a seat behind the drums as part of Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors to play three sets at Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken. We had a lot of fun mixing up covers and originals for over three hours of music.

Here was the setlist.

Hope to be back here with the Toll Collectors again soon. This was a fun one!

Northern Soul Recap 04-21-16 (RIP Prince)

Just a few hours after we learned of Prince’s passing, Northern Soul’s Thursday night of music began. Surrounded by videos of Prince performances on screen and the feeling that music has the power to connect us in mysterious ways, I took the stage with Ty Tuschen joining me on electric guitar. It was a special night to be playing music and one that I won’t forget anytime soon.

At the end of my set, we paid tribute to the purple one with two songs. “Nothing Compares 2U,” which Prince wrote but Sinéad O’Connor made popular. And for “Kiss,” we were joined by Jaime De Jesus, who had the perfect falsetto to take the lead vocal up into the stratosphere. To close the night, Jaime, Ty, James Calio, and I did a collaborative rendition of “Purple Rain.”

Here was the setlist.

Guitar Pull Recap – 03/12/16

What a great night of music at Espresso Joe’s! Lazlo’s Guitar Pulls are always unique. This time, he brought together Jason Kundrath, Paul Rosevear, and me. We played our songs in round robin style, trading stories and memories as we went.

There was a spirit of camaraderie and even a spontaneous collaboration! Paul Rosevear joined me during my song “Walking On” to add some electric guitar. Lola captured it on video… check it out! http://youtu.be/33yxO80_pYY

Jason snapped a cool-looking photo.
