A great show we will do again!

Hi everyone, lots of stuff coming up through the end of the year.

The 2nd Annual Hometown Throwdown is set for Dec 21st at the Palace Theatre in Syracuse, NY!! Tickets will go on sale soon!!

I have two more major tours coming up with Joe Bonamassa. One European run and one North American tour. I will also be doing a two week run in China and Japan with guitar legend and overall great dude, Mr. Larry Carlton….I get to play with all the best guitarists!! That will take place right in the middle of a Bonamassa tour, so I will be subbing out the chair for that time. But fear not, I shall return to finish the year with Joe.

I will also have a smattering of gigs with my band and also Groove Legacy. I am doing sessions from my studio in Sherman Oaks for solo sax, horn sections, arranging and vocal sessions. Contact me if you need some love on a track.

I’m arranging horns for one of my favorite people in the world, Mr. Billy Haynes! YES, he’s doing his solo record, so look out!! Everything is sounding great and he has a stellar line up and great songs, so this should be a killer recording!!

I am also finishing up a couple really great projects. The new Groove Legacy recording is wrapping up soon as well as the Reese Wynans recording I am co-producing with Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith. They will both be available in early 2019.

My band has been invited back for the Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea cruise in February. We are really excited about returning!

Last but not least, a new project inspired by the great Lightning Hopkins is under way at my studio. My band and I will be writing and recording a full length record inspired by the very intimate recordings of Hopkins.

I hope to see you on the road or at a local show!! Grab some music while you’re here!

Enjoy Life!
