What a fantastic and fun night of music! Three sets of originals and covers, including the 90s rock block in set 2!
Hope to do it again soon.
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.
Here is Ardith making some setlist notes.
Ardith will be joining me for another show at Pianos Upstairs Lounge in NYC on Thursday, August 27th. 7pm. Don’t miss it!
This is always such a great show, year after year.
Here is the stage all set and ready to go.
Here is our cover of Aerosmith’s “Amazing.”

Here’s the setlist.
Thanks to all of you who came out on a holiday weekend to see my solo acoustic performance this past Saturday.
Here’s a photo from the performance.
My next performance is with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors on June 5th at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken. Check the performances page for details.
And what a week it was!
Four gigs. Each unique in their own way.
First, a solo acoustic show at Bowery Electric. Sunday, March 15th. This place had a great vibe and an even better sound system and sound guy.
Second, a duo performance with singer/songwriter Shayfer James at the picturesque Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn, NY.
Third, I played with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ. It’s always a blast to play with these guys. This was such a great show!
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.
What a gig!
I had a blast playing with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors last Friday night at Tierney’s Tavern in Montclair, NJ – 12/12/14. It was so great to play in a band with such excellent musicians.
Here was the line up:
Christina Alessi: voice and acoustic guitar
Jon Andrew: Bass
Josh Bicknell: Drums
Ty Tuschen: Guitar
Mari Hubley: Mandolin/ Vox
Sean-David Cunningham: Epic Violin
Here was the setlist:
Watch a cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”

We hope to do it all over again sometime soon. Stay tuned!
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.
The place was packed!
Here are two photos showing my photography on the walls.
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.
As mentioned at the show:
Thank you all so, so much for attending on Friday. It was such a fun night!
