Canal Day Recap

Kristy couldn’t be there, so Ardith and I represented 2/3 double-breasted (single-breasted?) at Canal Day this past Saturday. I stepped out from behind the drum kit to play guitar. Our setlist was a fun one… Josh songs, double-breasted songs, and cover songs that spanned a wide range of folk tunes made popular by Pete Seeger to Britney Spears to 80s classics. It was a great turnout and a great time.

Here we are playing under the gazebo.

Espresso Joe’s Guitar Pull

I finished up the week with a unique show on Saturday, March 21st – A Guitar Pull sponsored by blowupradio.com. I had a fantastic time getting to meet and share the stage with David Bronson and Mike Regrets.

We took turns playing songs, talking about writing, recording, and everything in between. I always enjoy playing at Espresso Joe’s. Not only because they hosted my photography for a month back in November, but because the audience is top notch. They sit, listen, and pay attention to the show for the entire duration. It’s such a joy to see places like this still exist and I’m always so happy to play there.

Espresso Joe’s Recap 11/14

What an amazing night at Espresso Joe’s!

I was absolutely blown away by the undivided attention of the audience. As a singer/songwriter, it’s rare to play a room where everyone is there to listen. Kudos to Ed Kok for creating such an environment at Espresso Joe’s. Ed, you’ve created something really special in Keyport, NJ.

Many thanks are also due to Brian from The Wag. Without his support, the show would’ve never happened. He was also responsible for making me the Feature Artist of the Month, inspiring me to print and frame my photography. His band writes super catchy songs that immediately put you in a good mood. Check them out here.

As the finale of their set, The Wag asked me to join them and sing “Here Comes the Sun,” by the Beatles. Here’s a photo.

Here’s a photo of my setlist. I played two songs to open up the show and then came back later for a full set.

My favorite part – performing with my sister and with Ardith from double-breasted. We played a cover of “Say Something,” by A Great Big World.

Just before closing the set with a cover of Modern English’s “Melt with You,” I performed a cover of The Beatles’ “Across the Universe” on ukulele.
