In the Boston Globe

North Shore people, I’m in Beverly this Saturday night playing ShelterFest – a fundraiser for Harborlight Community Partners. (a nonprofit organization that provides local families in need with affordable housing) in Beverly MA. 12pm-9pm (we are last -8pm start), and it’s at a church, how cool is that? It’s always cool to be mentioned.

Where and how do we listen?

CD inserts (don’t we miss them?)

The end of the BackPage (the club I booked 1300 shows at). HeatherFest! (another repeat close out performance with Chris […]

Give back

I give in a number of different ways but performing is the best way I know how.  I’ll be helping out the “Shelter Fest” in Beverly MA on Saturday January 27th as part of a day long fundraiser with multiple bands (12pm-9pm) to raise money for low income housing recipients on the North Shore. Details […]

Showing up

I like to drop in and play the guitar pretty much whenever I can… This was taken at “Slades” a few weeks back -they have a ruckus Tuesday night jam you might want to check out (and I was there again last night). I’ve been a fan of “the jam” forever, places where strangers meet […]
