It’s been a busy month. Many gigs. One more weekend of them to go.
Here’s a couple of pics.
In between all of the gigs, work continues on my short story collection, Clattering, and also on a commissioned historic preservation work. See below for the working cover.
All the Best,
A fun evening last night on Ocean Avenue in Belmar. We played a two-hour concert for the Belmar Public Library.
Hi All. It’s been a busy one so far, even with all of the bad weather we’ve been seeing. The photo below is from this past Saturday at Bill’s Olde Tavern in Hamilton. Three awesome operatic singers out for a bit o’ fun! We’ll be back there on St. Patrick’s Day from Noon until 2pm so please stop in.
Last Saturday night Kaitlin, Chris, Andrew, and I spent a few hours in the recording studio laying down audio tracks for the Comma Music, a Chicago-based music library company. It was fun. We recorded instrumental tunes—jigs, reels, & hornpipes. To learn more about Comma Music, visit their website.
Update March 2: The tunes we recorded for Comma Music Library or now loaded to their site. Go here and filter for Public Domain. We’re the selections directly above Mozart. If you click the top one, the rest will auto feed.
My former band, orchestra, and French Horn instructor, the late Lloyd Snyder. He was stoic as a rule, but one December day he brought his US Navy horn in to show me during our private lesson. It went down with his ship at Pearl Harbor and to all appearances had been underwater for centuries.

What a gorgeous November fall day for our two hour gig on Witherspoon Street in downtown Princeton, NJ. We’ll be back to play in the spring.
Geraldine Dodge Poetry gave me a photo credit. The same photo also appeared in the 2016 GR Dodge Poetry Festival Program.
The guitar on the lawn at the Belmar Library is a tribute to the E-Street Band, which in its early years used to practice down the street at David Sancious’ mother’s house at 1107 E Street
