It's exciting to close out a great year of music, and begin a new one. I just wrapped up a 3 week set of performing and touring with my great friend, John Schwerbel. Throughout our time performing together we we're able to perform with other great musicians and do some special duo performances. Additionally, we tracked an EP on material entitled "Pine Hollow Session Vol. I" which is available for free on bandcamp. If your able to download, and maybe leave a few dollars to say thanks, all funds raised from the donations will go toward allowing us to record Vol. II in Summer 2014.
Looking onto the next month, I'll be performing at the Shanghai Bistro with a great cast of musicians, Acoustic Cafe Sessions return starting Jan 8th & the regular swing dances begin at the new "Lookout" on Feb. 1st. I'll be performing a "double drum" night with The Jazz Orgy at Peabody's in Oshkosh on January 12th (10 pm to 1 am) and I'll be appearing at a few jazz festivals.
