* This year marks 10 for my "Acoustic Doorways Concert Series" co - presented with the wonderful RCS Community Library.  This year we are working on a wonderful way to celebrate 10 years of incredibly diverse music, dance and spoken word.  Looking back on the past 9 years I am really very pleased that I was able to introduce to my community such diversity that resides with in an hour or 60 miles from our area.  I am honored beyond words to be a part of such a rich community.  Please check back so you can see who will be joining us for our 10th year.

* Very excited to be releasing a first time Audio / Video project which was recorded LIVE during my debut solo performance in 2016 at the infamous Caffe' Lena. The recording will be entitled "An Evening With A Percussionist"  You will be able to enjoy the music from the performance in your cd player as well as enjoy the video which is a composite of the entire performance on your computer. Very happy to finally present something that has been requested by many folks who enjoy my work with a project that shows throughout the video a nice cross section of diverse percussion that I use as my musical voice - both in performance as well as sharing the background of each instrument in what I hope is a fun but interesting approach.  Please look out for it.  My goal is to have it out early 2018.  Joining me as my special guest is my dear friend and remarkable artist; Studio Stu on vocals and his "one of a kind - Studivarious".
