Join me at Brownstone Tavern’s Pumpkin Fest on 9/27. Brownstone is located at 3937 N. Lincoln Ave in Chicago, IL. The fest starts at 11am, but I play solo from 4pm to 6pm. Good times for kids and adults! Just save some pumpkin beer for me!
I’m thinking of revamping my electric rig, which currently consists of a Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier head, a custom 2 x 12 cabinet (fabricated by my friends at Ayre Productions), a few Boss pedals (Blues Driver, Digital Delay and Phaser), Digitech Whammy, Dunlop Hendrix wah, Big Muff and a Hughes & Kettner Tubeman. The tapdancing while singing live is too cumbersome so I’m looking to simplify the effects chain. I expect to replace the H&K and Boss overdrive with a single pedal and get rid of the phaser altogether. Ahhhhhh, just the thought of it is bringing my blood pressure down!
Rockin the burbs on 6/29 from 9-11! No cover!
The summer is almost upon us, so that means shorts and sandals baby! Check out my schedule to find out where I’ll be this summer. As of this post there are 21 ways to catch me either basking in the sun or cooling in the AC with my guitar. Hope to see you there!
I’ve recently secured a pretty cool gig writing and recording some song parodies for a company and performing them live at their sales meeting in Vegas! My third year in a row with this fabulous Chicago-based company, in fact. I’m a bit weary of singing silly songs like these in front of people, but the fun almost immediately squashes the initial embarassment. Four weeks and counting til I take a bird to Sin City and not a single note recorded yet… Ummmmm, time to woodshed in the studio!
Join me on 1.15.13 at one Chi town’s swankiest lounges, situated almost thirty stories above State Street. I’m not usually one for heights, but somehow the Wit’s Rooftop lounge gives me the warm and fuzzies. Must be the booze….
