BIG HIX Country Music Band! 

I'm proud to announce my new modern country music tribute band, BIG HIX! The group plays today's top country hits by today's top country artists including Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen, Carrie Underwood and many, many more. We have dozens of shows booked through the end of the year so make sure to check out www.BIGHIX.com for the latest dates and news! 

I've gone TOP 10!!! 

Well, kind of....  :)  I played bass on a current Top 10 Billboard charting song.... Yes, Elizabeth Chan's hit holiday track "Fa La La" was #7 on the Billboard national Adult Contemporary charts for the week ending December 28th! And I'm in the video wearing a red jacket, rockin' with a saxophone-playing Hanukkah Harry. Check it out!  



Ich bin ein Deutscher! 

Hello Friends!

In my last blog (which was forever ago--sorry!) I mentioned ramping up my solo career again and how much I loved playing in Germany over the holidays. Well, both these factors have come together resulting in me doing a two week solo acoustic tour of Germany in late August! Check my "shows" page and if you happen to be over in Europe yourself, swing on by and say hello!  

I'll be playing several solo shows in NYC in the meantime, as well as cool gigs with Last Charge of the Light Horse,…Read more

Rockin' & Rollin' Outta Controllin'  

Hello friends!

I know it's been awhile since I've updated my blog, but luckily that's because I've been so dang busy!

Over the holidays, i got to travel to Europe with the hottest 80's tribute band in the land, the mighty RUBIX KUBE! We played several army bases in Kosovo and Germany and man, I have never had a greater apprectiation for the fine people our our armed services. No matter what your politics may be (and believe me, I am a lifelong rabid pacifist), next time you see an American serviceman,…Read more

Good 'Ol Country Music! 

Summer is winding down and but the music keeps playing!

I'm enjoying another residency with my country music band the Brandywine Creek Boys, this time at the famed Living Room on Manhattan's Lower East Side. We're working on more original tunes and hope to have a release sometime in the next few months. We're particularly looking forward to playing for my hometown crowd on September 8th and 9th at the Chadds Ford Days township fair down in Pennsylvania, just a stone's throw from our namesake, the…Read more

Summer, metal, and movie stars! 

First off, thanks to everyone who came down to the AMAZING Daredevil Squadron show at Brooklyn Bowl!  Those guys rock so friggin' hard and I haven't had the chance to play straight-up metal like that in awhile. I was just relieved my old KISS t-shirt still fit.  And believe me, I was missing that t-shirt while playing Black Eyed Peas and Taio Cruz cover songs at a Bar Mitzvah just three days later! 

Other fun news...

Speaking of metal, I just found out that my old metal band from days of yore, Satanicide,…Read more

Spring has sprung! 

April marks the return (for one night only--Sunday 4/15) of last year's hit show, The Continuing Story of Carla Rhodes, starring rock & roll ventriloquist, comedienne, and singer extraordinarie, Carla Rhodes! This newly-tweaked version is an extra-wild ride full of insane puppets, bawdy humor, and hard-driving rock music, and is also being filmed for a cool documentary movie--not to be missed!

Also, I'm currently in the studio co-writing and  producing tracks for the next album by super-suave…Read more
