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!

Banding Together Live Show on Saturday

101516

Join me on Saturday afternoon at one of the best places in New Jersey to listen to acoustic music – Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. I play at 4pm, but be sure to get there at least by 3:30pm to hear fellow Toll Collector Jonathan Andrew play, too! The entire day of music runs from Noon-10pm.

This show will benefit the Spondylitis Association of America, which provides research and services to over 2.7 million Americans that suffer from this arthritic condition. In the past, I’ve contributed to the online webathon, but this year it’s going to be a live show! Can’t wait. Hope you can make it too!

PS – You can also download the Compilation Album to help benefit the cause. I have contributed a brand new recording. Check out track #3 on the album!

ARTxSOUL Presents ARTxMUSIC Friday, Sept. 9th

Mark your calendars for this one. (Or better yet, RSVP on Facebook.)

Jonathan Andrew and I will be opening up for our own band! Jonathan will start the night, accompanied by Ty Tuschen. Then I’ll play a set, also accompanied by Ty. Then, Christina will join the stage, I’ll move behind the drum set, and the Toll Collectors will close out the night. All the while, you can check out artists from ARTxSOUL, Vol. 3 on the walls… which includes my photography!
