Thank you for visiting my web site!
I am fairly busy this summer and hoping to catch up with old and new friends at the various venues where I am performing. Among them, Arrivederci, Five O’ Three, Corkscew and Orenco Station seem to be in my regular rotation. The venues are different, each requiring a somewhat altered approach and so it always thrilling to work with any number of my favorite musicians, each bringing their unique talents and vision to the gig. Sometimes I feel like I am in total command and other times, hanging on for dear life! Jazz does that to you. Making great music with fabulous musicians is one of the things in life that makes getting up each day worthwhile. So, here are a few upcoming gigs that I am getting up for:
11/11 - Coyote's 7:30-10:30
11/5 - Arrivederci 7:00-10:00
W/Matt Lotz and Chuck Everett
10/25 - Restaurant 503 6:30-9:30
10/16 - Arrivederci 7:00-10:00
W/ Ron Howard (Chet Baker set)
10/3 - Arrivederci 7:00-10:00
I am fortunate to have a fairly busy schedule with my great cover band, Pressure Point We are playing events all over the Northwest at The Sentinel, Portland Art Museum, Convention Center, Reed College, Blackbutte, Suniver, The Woodmark and Faimont hotels and a bunch more great locations and venues throughout the year. If you have an event that requires some great jazz as well as dance music ranging from big band to contemporary, Pressure Point is pretty hard to beat! www.pressurepointband.com
Here is a link to the band’s promotional video http://www.hybridmoon.com/videos/cmevents/1
I have noticed that house parties have become popular and wanted to mention that I could be available to perform at your next house party with any number of the A List musicians that I am privileged to perform with.
Check out the video section on this page. A few independent film makers have chosen my music as the sound track for their short films. There is also a clip of pianist Joe Millward and I performing in the KMHD studio on Lynn Darroch's show "Bright Moments.
NOTE: I HAVE SEVERAL MORE VIDEO CLIPS
