I had a great night playing for the patrons of the bar/lounge in the Aloft Hotel in Manhattan’s Financial District. I played a mix of covers and originals. Here was the setlist. Hope to be back there again soon!
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!
Here’s my entry into NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest! It’s an acoustic version of my song “Howlin’.” Hope you enjoy it!

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!

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!
Join me for a night of music at Finnegan‘s in Hoboken, NJ from 10pm-1am. I’m starting the night by doing my singer/songwriter thing and then moving back behind the drums to play with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors! In other words, I’ll be the opening act for my own band.
