Wharton Spring Concert Series. Hugh Force Canal Park. Wharton, NJ. July 19, 2015.
This was technically the “Spring” concert series. But after the first date was cancelled due to rain, the reschedule date wound up on the hottest day of the year so far! I sweated through my shirt entirely, but nonetheless had a blast playing outdoors in a beautiful setting for a super attentive crowd.
We are playing a wedding this weekend and then our next show is on Wednesday, August 19th in Cape May, NJ at the historic Chalfonte Hotel.
On Sunday, July 13th, I’ll play with double-breasted at the Music Den’s 30th Anniversary celebration.
The Music Den has had quite an influence on my musical upbringing. One of the owners was actually my first elementary music teacher. I remember when he left the teaching position to devote himself to the Music Den store full time. Later, as I pieced together my first drum set, I bought many pieces from the Music Den. I bought my first electric guitar there. Most importantly, I took my first lessons on drum set there, studying with John Hvasta. He taught me so many skills that I still apply to my playing today.
It’s hard to believe that the store has been open for 30 years, but I’m happy to help them celebrate and perform a set with double-breasted.
Of course, the celebration is open to the public… I hope to see you there!
It’s that time of year again. Ardith, Kristy, and I will drive down to Exit 0 off the Garden State Parkway and host an evening of double-breastedmusical entertainment at the historic Chalfonte Hotel in Cape May, NJ.

Join us for this very acoustic, very intimate performance at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. It’ll be our first performance at this venue. I’ve heard great things and am excited to check this place out.

Christina, Jonathan, and I will perform together at Northern Soul for the third time this year. What began as a one-time songwriter’s collaborative has turned into a semi-regular gig.
Here’s the basic gist. The three of us perform each other’s songs as a trio. We throw in a few covers, too. And for the first time, we’ve decided to give this little project a name. So – at least for this show – we will be called Temple of the Kitty. Stop by on Saturday to find out why.
