Pinocchio's for Pi Day! (3/14, 7-10pm)

The Conspirators and I will be back at Pinocchio’s in Pasadena this Pi Day! (That’s next Saturday, 3/14, for those of you not quite geeky enough to observe the holiday.)  We’ll be playing from 7-10pm, which is prime dinner time, and, I’m reminded, everyone’s gotta eat! There’s no cover charge and all ages are welcome.  […]

Beckman Auditorium was packed!

What a concert on Friday night! I’ve never seen Beckman Auditorium so full!  A big thank you to all who came!  For those who couldn’t be there, I posted recordings of my tunes on the Recordings page. It was a real thrill to get to meet Flea — what a delightful man and an inspiring […]

Back at Pinocchio's with the Conspirators on 1/31!

On Saturday, 1/31, “The Conspirators” and I will be back at Pinocchio’s in Pasadena, swinging the joint from 8-11pm.  It’ll be a fun evening of jazz standards, swing, and blues. There’s no cover charge and all ages are welcome.  Just show up, eat good Italian food or hang out at the bar, and, as always, […]

Me, Flea and cookies: what a deal!

I’m honored to be singing with the Caltech Jazz Bands again at their annual winter showcase.  If “Basin Street Blues” and a brand-spankin’-new Les Deutsch arrangement of “Christmas Night in Harlem” aren’t enough to tempt you, how about this: I’ll be sharing the stage with none other than Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers!  […]

Carols coming out of my ears!

Because I start rehearsing for holiday shows in September, I’m a bit immune to carols and holiday songs. When the decorations come out around town, I know my calendar is about to get especially crowded, but it doesn’t really feel like Christmas until I have caroled my heart out in various costumes for several days […]

Glee Clubs' annual Holiday Concerts

The Caltech Glee Clubs‘ annual Holiday Concerts are this Friday and Saturday at 8PM and will feature John Rutter’s “Gloria” for chorus, brass, percussion, and organ and other traditional works of the season. The venue is the beautiful sanctuary at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena. Check the gig calendar for details and directions!

Pinocchio's this Saturday!

Tired of the old one-song-here, a-coupla-songs-there guest soloist deal, but amidst this whole economic crisis not feeling flush enough to have my band throw you your own concert in your living room?  Have I got a deal for you!  This Saturday, 11/1, we’ll be performing from 8-11pm at Pinocchio’s in Pasadena — it’s my new […]

All systems go!

Last minute preparations for setting up our “Princess Palace” are almost done, and my buddy Kirsten and I will head for Burning Man in the morning. I’ll be singing with the Black Rock City Swing Orchestra in the bigtop in the Red Nose District next Friday night, so if you’ll be in Black Rock City, […]

Looking to jam at Burning Man

I’m getting ready to go to Burning Man for the first time.  I first planned to go so I could sing with the Black Rock City Swing Orchestra (and maybe sit in on trombone, too), but my plans have expanded!  I’ll be there for the the whole shebang, showing up a little early to help […]

Brahms' Requiem tonight and tomorrow!

If you’re in the mood for a great (free!) concert tonight or tomorrow, come check out the Caltech Glee Clubs and the Occidental-Caltech Orchestra as we present Brahms’ “A German Requiem.” Details are on the calendar!
