Recap: Finnegan’s, The Hutton, and Groove on Grove

Here’s a recap of my recent performances.

Friday, April 20, 2018 – Toll Collectors at Finnegan’s

This was a really fun show at Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken, NJ. We were without Ty on guitar for most of the show and it was fun to explore these songs sans lead guitar. As usual, we all crammed ourselves on this stage…

And then we played a nice mix of originals and covers! Here was the setlist.

Saturday, April 21, 2018 – Josh and Ty at The Hutton

The next night, I was joined by Ty Tuschen as I did my singer/songwriter thing at The Hutton in  Jersey City, NJ. After fueling up on a delicious meal, we played for more than two hours straight, mixing my original songs with some wide-ranging covers.

We didn’t actually get through the entire setlist, but we had good intentions! Here it was.

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 – Toll Collectors at Groove on Grove

The weather finally turned warm and sunny in a major way… and just in time for the first Groove on Grove of the season! It was a pleasure to kick it off by playing with Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors.

We played outdoors at the Grove Street PATH Plaza.

This was the setlist. The keys and mic stand kept it from blowing away in the wind!

The day ended with a beautiful sunset. Here’s the pedestrian plaza on Newark Ave. in Jersey City just down the block from where we performed.
