Appearance on the Latest Noise Podcast

This week, I had a great time chatting with Mike Kuzan and Max Feinstein on the Latest Noise podcast. Check out the episode to hear our conversation about my upcoming show at the Hutton, music, photography, the creative process, creating effective email newsletters, and also a live performance of my song “A New Start.”

Hope you enjoy it!

Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0 – Saturday, October 28th

LedZeppelinEngagement2.0

I’m super excited to be part of the Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0. Playing version 1.0 on the waterfront was amazing (you can watch me playing drums on “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do? on YouTube), but I suspect bringing this event indoors to Maxwell’s will make it rock even harder. The event features over 30 local musicians coming together to play the music of Led Zeppelin. Don’t miss it!

On none other than Robert Plant’s 69th Birthday, I will be part of a group of over 30 local musicians celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin. Organized by Jaime De Jesus of ALEO Music, this event will be a great cap to your summer weekend. As the sun sets, watch us play in front of the New York City skyline in Hoboken’s Frank Sinatra Park. 6pm. Free for all ages. I’ll be playing drums on Four Sticks and Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?

Latest Noise Showcase Recap 7/28/17

It was a fantastic event at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ, beginning with spoken word and moving into music. The energy was high and all six members of the Toll Collectors were there. A rarity for this band! We had a blast delivering an all-original setlist. Thank you to everyone who attended!

This was my perspective from the drum seat.

The band is all here!

An all-original song setlist.

Next show is coming up on Friday, August 4th at Maxfield’s in Boonton, NJ! Can’t wait!
