Record release, tour dates and a special anniversary
This summer is going to be a busy one! We are just about done tracking for the new record, which I can't wait for you to hear. You can hear a couple of quick clips from the studio sessions via my Facebook page, and there will be more to come soon. More to the point, I will be doing a handful of tourdates this summer culminating in a big NYC record release show! So far I have dates lined up in Lancaster, Akron and Pittsburgh, and then the big CD release show on September 21 at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC. Mark your calendars, and check my calendar page for the full details.
I've been privileged to be the conductor of jazz-vocal ensemble Uncommon Chord for the past three years, and this month we are celebrating our 20th anniversary with a special concert at the Laurie Beechman Theater! Please join us on Thursday, June 23 for a 7 PM concert.
I'm excited to announce that I will be joining the new band for American Idol and Rock of Ages star Constantinue Maroulis! Rehearsals are underway - the debut of the new band will be July 9 and the NJ State Fair, followed by fall tour dates including stops in DC and New York (with more to be announced soon). Check out Constantine's new single here.
New live videos - Live from the Living Room
I've got two live videos from the recent gig at the Living Room! Enjoy a rocked up version of "New Amsterdam" as well as "I Met A Girl", a tune from my Jukebox EP that I hadn't played in years.
Working as a professional musician, I offer a number of services including vocal accompaniment, transcriptions, arranging and piano lessons. My new Professional Services page includes details on some of the various types of work I can offer as a collaborator or as a for-hire pro.
Previously, this information was available on a separate website, westendmusicnyc.com. I've decided to migrate all of the information from West End Music over to this site, making it 'one-stop-shopping' for all fo my various musical endeavors.
