Finnegan’s and Maxwell’s Recap

I’ve enjoyed a few great shows in Hoboken with the Toll Collectors this month. The first was at Finnegan’s on July 16. I actually got to open up the night with an acoustic set. Here I am with Ty Tuschen on electric guitar and Jack Breslin on bass.


Our second show was at Maxwell’s on 7/22 opening for Jane Lee Hooker.

Here was the setlist.


And here’s a video of our cover of “Long as I Can See the Light,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. If you can’t see the embed below, here is the link.

Finnegan’s July 16th

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.

Toll Collectors at Finnegan’s Recap 05-06-16

On May 6th, I took a seat behind the drums as part of Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors to play three sets at Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken. We had a lot of fun mixing up covers and originals for over three hours of music.

Here was the setlist.
