JUNE 2017

HOLY MOLY!  June is one busy month for me - Festival season has already started, and in the next month I'll be heading throughout Quebec, Ontario, Michigan, Illinois, Indianopolis, Ohio, New York, Washington, Oregon, California (first time in Bay area!), Alberta, Manitoba, and beyond! 

Been a wild ride of a year so far, let's see... Started off 2017 in Germany for NYE at the LET'S GET WILD fest... Then went to ARCADIA STUDIOS in Maine to record a new single for SWELLTUNE RECORDS (release date Sept '17 at the NEW ENGLAND SHAKE-UP - where I'll be heading an all-request set at the Pre-party)... Did more recording with MATT VERTA-RAY in New York City for an upcoming EP collab... Played in Brooklyn with MUNGO JERRY (!)... Was nominated for an Ameripolitan Music Award (which turned into a fun mini-tour of Texas with pals Jittery Jack & Miss Amy)... Another tour of Florida... An appearance on the BELLE ET BUM TV show (Click here & here for vids)... Played one of the final shows at Toronto's SILVER DOLLAR before they shut down... Went to Las Vegas to play the book launch for pin-up photog queen SHANNON BROOKES' VROOM (and did a cameo during DEKE DICKERSONs "Rhythm & Blues Revue")... Joined Beat poet CHARLES PLYMELL  in Montreal to perform the songs done off our 7" collab... Played 2 shows with Japans THE 5.6.7.8.'s, and did some recording together - hoping to have a single out soon, stay tuned... Went out west to BC to perform at a tribute show for RAY CONDO, and was backed by his band THE RICOCHETS...Passed thru Kansas City for the WESTPORT ROOTS fest...and more coming!

 

Recently in Utah, I managed to meet up with HAL SCHNEIDER (original singer/drummer/songwriter for THREE ACES & A JOKER, who laid down the GREATEST party song ever in '59 - BOOZE PARTY!) Hal came to our show and joined us on stage for a wild rendition of his hit, and we even got together the next day to record 2 songs he wrote back in the day but never recorded himself - they are GREAT tunes and will hopefully have some more news to share about this soon! For now, enjoy this clip of us jammin in Ogden, UT!
