Finnegan’s and Maxwell’s Recap

I’ve enjoyed a few great shows in Hoboken with the Toll Collectors this month. The first was at Finnegan’s on July 16. I actually got to open up the night with an acoustic set. Here I am with Ty Tuschen on electric guitar and Jack Breslin on bass.

Our second show was at Maxwell’s on 7/22 opening for Jane Lee Hooker.

Here was the setlist.

And here’s a video of our cover of “Long as I Can See the Light,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. If you can’t see the embed below, here is the link.

On May 6th, I took a seat behind the drums as part of Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors to play three sets at Finnegan’s Pub in Hoboken. We had a lot of fun mixing up covers and originals for over three hours of music.

Here was the setlist.

We also covered a new Beyoncé song, “Daddy Lessons.” Check out the video below or on YouTube here.

Hope to be back here with the Toll Collectors again soon. This was a fun one!

Recap – Toll Collectors 7/11/15

Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors at Finnegan’s in Hoboken, NJ. July 11, 2015.

Three sets of pure fun. Covers, originals, and a great crowd. Who knew the Brandi Carlile tune would be the most popular?

Leading up to this show, we had an epic, A/C-less rehearsal. Which resulted in the following elevator photo op. The band that sweats together, takes elevator selfies together.

Enough said.
