Archive for April, 2012


April seems to be all about doing the work: ¬†tearing down my studio so¬†I can get it water-proofed and remodeled; learning to be flexible with practice time and space when I don’t have a¬†dedicated area; learning new material for upcoming shows.¬† But¬†I’m pretty sure it will all pay off, in some cases¬†as soon as next month.

My biggest news is that I’m playing keys for¬†Debora¬†Iyall’s backing band. I’ve mentioned Debora in a previous post; she was the lead singer of Romeo Void, a seminal post-punk band from the 80’s.¬†¬†¬† The whole situation seems a little too good to be true, so I’ve been very quiet about it, afraid I might jinx it in some way.¬† However, we have a show coming up on Cinco de Mayo at¬†Armandos in Martinez, CA¬†so I guess it’s time to make it official.

And here’s a preview of¬†some of the music¬†you’ll be hearing if you make it out to the show:



A Jimi¬†Hendrix tribute performed by the very talented Stev¬†Ohanis (guitar), Dave Wenger (bass) and John Tucker (drums) will kick off the evening, and I’ll even play a few solo songs before the main event.

Later on in the month of May, on th 22nd,  I have a show at El Rio with special guest Zoid.
