Well folks, summertime is here and along with it comes some super fun shows at some super fun venues!

I am very pleased to announce the band and I will be returning to JOE SENT ME in Waltham, MA this coming FRIDAY JUNE 6th at 9 PM. Last time we were there it was a whole lot of fun, and we really want to make this show extra special! We need you all to come out and show your love for the FUNK, so I hope to see you all there!

Special guest with me this friday include my good friend JODEE FRAWLEE on guitar, and on drums will be a young man originally from Texas named Bryson - who is actually a really talented vocalist who just happens to be pretty nasty on the drum kit too.

 Other recent happenings: we had a couple of really great shows recently at THE BACK PAGE in Lowell as well as SONNY WALKER'S in Roxbury. Both of these gigs gave me the opportunity to work with a super funky bassist names Vaughn Brathwaite. Vaughn is originally from New York and spends most of his time playing gospel music as the music director of a church, but he sure can lay down some funk and soul when he wants to - and we're glad to welcome him into the family.

 Stay tuned for lots more FUNKY shows and things happening this summer... We will be back at TOAD in Porter Square, Cambridge on June 13th, and once again you can catch us THIS FRIDAY JUNE 6th at JOE SENT ME in WALTHAM, MA.
