Watch a Video from My Maxwell’s Performance

On Thursday, May 4th, I had the privilege of entertaining the front room at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ. Ty Tuschen joined me for two sets and also ran his GoPro during the gig! Check out this video, which features a unique acoustic interpretation of Disclosure’s (feat. Sam Smith) “Latch.”

Guitar Pull with Christina and Jonathan

ChristinaJoshJonGuitarPull

Back in 2013, Christina Alessi, Jonathan Andrew, and I decided to play a show together at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ (photo above). The idea was to collaborate on each other’s music. We each wrote our own songs, but thought it would be fun to back each other up as we traded the lead spot. Little did we know this would be start of the band we play in now – Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors!

On Saturday, we get to return to original form in a performance at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. Jonathan, Christina, and I will perform as part of a Guitar Pull, hosted by BlowUpRadio.com. This will be a fun show and allow us all to play our songs individually, but with a little help from each other.

Also, it’s Lazlo’s birthday! He’s the mastermind behind blowupradio.comand we can’t wait to help him celebrate!

Maxwell’s Recap 05/04/17

A huge thanks to everyone who came to Maxwell’s last Thursday. Ty and I had a blast! Here’s a nice photo captured that night.

And here was the setlist. It was slightly modified due to special requests, like one for Springsteen’s “Atlantic City.” For the most part, though, it remains accurate.

Thanks to everyone who came. Hope to be back at Maxwell’s soon!

Banding Together Live Show on Saturday

101516

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!

Guitar Pull on Saturday, March 12th

On Saturday, March 12th I’ll be playing a special kind of show at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ.

This isn’t your typical – watch this guy play for 40 minutes, watch the next guy play for 40 minutes, go home – kind of show. I’ll be playing round robin, storyteller-style with two fantastic singer-songwriters, Paul Rosevear and Jason Kundrath.

Deafening Colors open the show at 7pm and the round robin begins at 8pm.

This show will be hosted by Blowupradio.com.

Hope to see you there!
