Happy New Year!


Hi there folks, wishing everyone a happy New Year. I had a great little vacation from teaching filled with eating, practicing and hanging out with friends and family. A few gigs coming up that I’m excited about. On Jan. 19th I’ll be at the Blue Whale with Jason Harnell and Joe Bagg. We have a group called Sigmund Fudge with Ryan McGillicuddy on bass but since Ryan is teaching in Korea currently we’re trying it sans bass, hence “Just Fudge”. And then Jan. 29, I’ll be playing at John Pisano’s Guitar Night at Lucy’s 51. All of us jazz guys in LA know what a treasure John is to the scene and it’s always an honor to be asked to play with him. Hope to see some of you guys there!


Howdy. Thanks to everyone for coming out to the LAJC Spring Fest at Vitello’s. It turned out to be a lot of fun (despite my last minute pedalboard abandonment due to random effect freak-outage).

I have 3 gigs coming up at Blue Whale and I’m looking forward to each of them. First: the return of JoE-LeSs shOe on Weds, April 28th.  Second: Ryan McGillicuddy’s quartet wit

h Adam Benjamin on keys and Jason Harnell on drums on Sat May 8th and third: singer Sharmila Guha’s trio with Eric Sittner on bass. Hope to see you at some of them!
