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.
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.
First, a solo acoustic show at Bowery Electric. Sunday, March 15th. This place had a great vibe and an even better sound system and sound guy.

Espresso Joe’s Guitar Pull
I finished up the week with a unique show on Saturday, March 21st – A Guitar Pull sponsored by blowupradio.com. I had a fantastic time getting to meet and share the stage with David Bronson and Mike Regrets.
We took turns playing songs, talking about writing, recording, and everything in between. I always enjoy playing at Espresso Joe’s. Not only because they hosted my photography for a month back in November, but because the audience is top notch. They sit, listen, and pay attention to the show for the entire duration. It’s such a joy to see places like this still exist and I’m always so happy to play there.
I’m excited to be joining fellow acoustic musicians David Bronson and Mike Regrets for a Guitar Pull.
What’s a guitar pull, you ask? Sponsored by blowupradio.com, the evening will feel more like sitting around a campfire and listening to old friends sharing songs. Usually the songs are accompanied by stories, or conversations about the creative process. It’s a collaborative show format that I know you’ll enjoy watching.
Really excited for this one. Mark your calendars.
Saturday, March 21st Solo Acoustic Guitar Pull

I’m really looking forward to playing with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors again. We played a show back in December at Tierney’s in Montclair, NJ and had a ton of fun. Can’t wait to play another one!
