With 2014 well underway I have been active playing, traveling, and studying in my last semester at University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. I am very excited to have been part of Grant Larson's record Terrane which will be available shortly via iTunes, CD Baby and direct order. Coming up in the next few weeks I will be performing a special concert with my big band at the Hedye Center in Chippewa Falls on Saturday Feb. 22nd (7:30 pm, $11 tickets). Also, I will have continued engagements at Shanghai Bistro featuring Josh Gallagher, Dr. Phillip Ostrander, Christine Hitt, and Minneapolis-based guitarist, Bill Bergman. Also, on March 8th I will be a guest clinician for the Wausau Area Jazz Festival and afterwards I'll be rushing back to Eau Claire for a gig with Jazz Ensemble I at Pizza Plus on Bartsow Ave.
