The last couple of weeks have been nothing short of AMAZING... dare I say even EPIC?!? That is a word that tends to get thrown about frivolously these days, but I promise you there is no frivolity in my delivery right now.

Last weekend in New York was great. We had an excellent turn out at club GROOVE; playing on stage at this West Village hot spot is always a good time. We met some great folks, made some new friends, and for the first time in a while we managed to keep almost everyone there dancing until closing time. We love playing at GROOVE and we can't wait to get back in there again soon!

Paula Green, Dave Smith, Kyle Christian, Dameyun Henry and myself take time between sets at GROOVE NYC to take a picture with some fans from Canada.
We'll be back in New York City on December 13th at THE SHRINE in HARLEM. It's been a little while since we've played over there, but it's always a good time. This will be the first time for us playing an extended two-hour set over at THE SHRINE, starting at 10 PM and ending at midnight. We are very excited to showcase some NEW and ORIGINAL material at this show, so we really hope that you and all of your friends will come on by help us to make this yet another EPIC GIG!!!

Lastly, I need to give a big SHOUT OUT to everyone in my old hometown of LOWELL, MA who came out to see the band and I play at THE BACK PAGE. It was truly and extraordinary night! Aided by the unseasonably warm weather and perhaps by some overflow from the GUSTER show happening across the way at the Memorial Auditorium, we managed to fit more people in that club than I think I had ever seen in there, and everyone was having a great time!

I am so grateful to everyone who came out and partied with us. Your love and support as always is greatly appreciated! Of course I want to thank my good friends Mike Flynn at WUML and Jack Baldwin at WCAP for helping my get the word out over the airways. Of course we also want to thank everyone over at THE BACK PAGE for having us back, we hope to come back and do it again real soon!

If you're in the New England area you can come check us out at TOAD in PORTER SQUARE in CAMBRIDGE, MA on FRIDAY DECEMBER 20th at 10 PM. Hope to see you there!!
