promo bio

Baltimore and additional DC dates coming soon...

SIDEMAN:
There are some nice gigs being added to the calendar beginning with a CD release show with the Greg Hatza ORGANization at Chris' Jazz Cafe in Philadelphia on May 4.

Please keep your eye on my calendar page for info and new shows as they get added.

STUDIO:
I'll be heading into Time Master Studio with the band to do a little recording in May. This will be an interim project fcusing on some of my simpler "lead sheet" tunes from over the years. I'm excited to get some of these old tunes recorded, some of which go back 30 years!

This summer I also hope to finish up Chord Lines/In the Groove, the organ album I recorded a couple of years ago with Greg Hatza, Mark Stanley and Leland Nakamura. I've done some rough mixing at Gizmo Recording Co. and it sounds great. I plan to put a horn section on some of the pop and rock covers we did on this project. Stay tuned!

Also at Gizmo, Bold Deceivers is making slow but steady progress toward the completion of our EP. This is the "roots" band in which I mainly play accordion, plus melodica, tin whistle, and a wee bit o' the saxophone.

VIDEO:
New video is up from the Blues Alley show in January. Look on my video page or visit my You Tube channel for those and much more!

SIDEMAN:
The new CD by the Greg Hatza ORGANization is now available! It's called "Digging Up My Roots" and features R&B and Blues tunes that were influential to him coming up in Reading, PA in the '60s. I'm proud to have been a part of this great band for nearly 20 years! We'll be playing in the DC/Baltimore area quite a bit this year to promote the record and hopefully hitting the road, too. Stay tuned! You can get the CD through Greg's website (link above), the usual online outlets, or at one of our gigs.
