The Hutton Recap 2/24/18

I had such a great time on Saturday, February 24th playing for a great crowd at The Hutton in Jersey City Heights. Ty Tuschen joined me on guitar for an epic two and a half hour set with no break! We simply didn’t want to stop playing.

Here was the setlist.

What a fantastic night!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21st when I’ll be playing at the Hutton again!

Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0 – Saturday, October 28th

LedZeppelinEngagement2.0

I’m super excited to be part of the Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0. Playing version 1.0 on the waterfront was amazing (you can watch me playing drums on “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do? on YouTube), but I suspect bringing this event indoors to Maxwell’s will make it rock even harder. The event features over 30 local musicians coming together to play the music of Led Zeppelin. Don’t miss it!

Banding Together 2017: A Benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America

I’m thrilled to be part of this year’s benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America, Banding Together 2017. Lazlo from blowupradio.com organizes this successful effort each year. His wife suffers from Spondylitis, so this is a very personal cause for him.

Spondylitis is a genetic rheumatoid arthritic condition that causes inflammation and fusion in the vertebrae of the spine. To date BlowUpRadio.com has raised thousands of dollars for the cause, and raised awareness of the genetic disease which the Centers For Disease Control says affects more than 2.7 million adults in the US.

Want to help out?

There are two ways to contribute:

  1. Attend a Live Performance
  2. Purchase the Digital Compilation

Attend a Live Performance on Saturday Afternoon
