New band, first gig!

The still-unnamed cover band I joined recently will be playing our first gig on Friday, May 12 at the The Wine Room in Moss Beach, just a little north of the Half Moon Bay Airport, one block to the east of Highway 1, from 7-9pm.

Fronted by Scott Goldstone, a fantastic keyboardist and vocalist, we’ll be doing R&B-flavored material like “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I’ve Got)” by the Four Tops, “I Can’t Go For That” by Hall & Oates, “Freddie’s Dead” by Curtis Mayfield, “Trouble Man” by Marvin Gaye, “Home At Last” and “Black Cow” by Steely Dan, and many more. Tom Josa on bass and Dennis O’Keefe on drums round out the personnel. Come check us out if you are in the area!

Guitar duo with Jeff Kamil – Madrigal Family Winery Sausalito Tasting Salon & Gallery

I’ll be playing some jazz guitar at the Madrigal Family Winery Sausalito Tasting Salon & Gallery (in, as you might have guessed, Sausalito) with my friend Jeffrey Kamil again on Friday evening, April 21. We’ll be playing from 6-8pm.
This is the 16th in their Art and Wine series, featuring the work of local professional Marin County Artists including Cathy Locke, Carol Smith Myer, and Arlene Whiting Lewetzow, with art curation by Shiva Pakdel. This exhibition is a celebration showing support of Marin Open Studios, a vibrant, community-wide event that celebrates the county’s rich culture of art. Marin Open Studios is an annual free art event that has taken place during the first two weekends in May for 23 years. Over 270 world-class artists and their works are featured for viewing and for sale at the event.
