Northern Soul Recap 04-21-16 (RIP Prince)

Just a few hours after we learned of Prince’s passing, Northern Soul’s Thursday night of music began. Surrounded by videos of Prince performances on screen and the feeling that music has the power to connect us in mysterious ways, I took the stage with Ty Tuschen joining me on electric guitar. It was a special night to be playing music and one that I won’t forget anytime soon.

At the end of my set, we paid tribute to the purple one with two songs. “Nothing Compares 2U,” which Prince wrote but Sinéad O’Connor made popular. And for “Kiss,” we were joined by Jaime De Jesus, who had the perfect falsetto to take the lead vocal up into the stratosphere. To close the night, Jaime, Ty, James Calio, and I did a collaborative rendition of “Purple Rain.”

Here was the setlist.

Guitar Pull Recap – 03/12/16

What a great night of music at Espresso Joe’s! Lazlo’s Guitar Pulls are always unique. This time, he brought together Jason Kundrath, Paul Rosevear, and me. We played our songs in round robin style, trading stories and memories as we went.

There was a spirit of camaraderie and even a spontaneous collaboration! Paul Rosevear joined me during my song “Walking On” to add some electric guitar. Lola captured it on video… check it out! http://youtu.be/33yxO80_pYY

Jason snapped a cool-looking photo.

Pianos Recap

What a fantastic night at Pianos!

On Tuesday, December 29th I was joined by Ardith Collins on cello for a nice little acoustic performance in the upstairs lounge.

Here are Ardith and the sound guy doing a little pre-show phone check.

Here is the setlist. We were able to pack a bunch of tunes in the set, including a folk tune (Who’s Gonna Shoe?), an 80s classic (Melt With You), a 90s one-hit wonder (Your Woman), a modern day cover (Loveland), and a bunch of my original songs. Oh… and… ummm… Britney Spears. There was some of that, too. I also experimented using looping pedals. One for the voice. One for the guitar. Worked out quite well and allowed me to add some additional layering.

Canal Day Recap

Kristy couldn’t be there, so Ardith and I represented 2/3 double-breasted (single-breasted?) at Canal Day this past Saturday. I stepped out from behind the drum kit to play guitar. Our setlist was a fun one… Josh songs, double-breasted songs, and cover songs that spanned a wide range of folk tunes made popular by Pete Seeger to Britney Spears to 80s classics. It was a great turnout and a great time.

Here we are playing under the gazebo.

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.

Pianos Recap

Wednesday, August 27th I played a solo acoustic show at Pianos Upstairs Lounge. It’s a nice little spot in the lower east side of Manhattan.

Here’s a photo of me playing.

And here was the setlist. It started on the back of an envelope and finished up on a piece of notebook paper. I wound up calling an audible and subbed in a cover of Melt with You in place of one of my slower tunes, Sunday Morning.
