A few very exciting things to share:
* This year marks 12 for my "Acoustic Doorways Concert Series" co - presented with the wonderful RCS Community Library. This year we are mixing it up as we step into our second decade. I will be performing in two of the four concerts opening up the opportunity to present and introduce the community to two performing groups that I do not have any professional affiliation with. Here's to the next 10 years of incredibly diverse music, dance and spoken word. Looking back on the past 10 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 12th year.
* Came together after a 5 year hiatis to perform a wonderful reunion concert with Globetrotting; John Davey: Upright Bass and Steve Gorn: Woodwinds, at the beautiful West Kortright Centre. Very much looking forward to the next time we can cross paths and create together. Here is a composite video of our concert.
* Very happy to be working with a very old friend and remarkable singer / songwriter; Marcus Ruggerio on a new project Side Show Gypsy. Created another very interesting and diverse hybrid kit with a few more conventional drums and a whole lot of cymbals since the music is so dynamically different from song to song. Here is a composite video from one of our past concerts. We are currently planning a multi-day recording session to capture this body of music LIVE. Very excited for this music to be out in the world in recorded format to share with promoters, presenters, and the media
* Very excited to be releasing a first time Audio / Video project which was recorded LIVE during my debut solo performance in 2016 at the famous 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. Joining me as my special guest is my dear friend and remarkable artist; Studio Stu on vocals and his "one of a kind - Studivarious".
