Hey there – Long time no hear…not much new going on since last summer – BUT - that’s all about to change.

A few new things to take note of - 1) New montages!!! I am taking a break from working on my next solo CD to work on some long-awaited and much requested Suburban Gypsies projects. The slideshow montages (right on the front/homepage) are taken from a TON of pictures in my vault set to some live Suburban Gypsies songs that we recorded for a couple of cassettes that were available in the 90's (more on that below). I featured each one of the band members (including myself obviously) in three of the…Read more
At the time of this writing, it is 90 degrees, 80% humidity with a dew point of 73. Oppressive - and I absolutely love it. It reminds me of the time I spent with my Mom in one of my most favorite places in the world, Charleston, South Carolina. So I pretend and dream that that is where I am right now :) Not much news here or much to report, but I do have a gig at The Steaming Cup in Waukesha coming up in August as part of the Friday Night Live outdoor concert series. Details are in the calendar section…Read more
I had the great pleasure of seeing Howard Jones on his acoustic tour that he's on right now with only him on piano and Robin Boult on guitar. As some of you are aware, I am not one of those people who fall into fads and passing trends - if I like someone's music and musicianship, I follow and support their career continually, no matter how long or what phases it takes. Most people remember Howard Jones as an electronic-pop 80's icon. Yes, he was that, but I have continually followed his career for 23…Read more
Since the 90's were such an extremely debaucherous decade for me, the Sub Gyps, and my extended peeps, I thought I'd share a few pictures I came across while I was cleaning (yes, really cleaning.) The photos range from about 1993 - 1998. As you can see, we had A LOT of fun (more than anyone should probably legally have had), but we came through it relatively unscathed. You may also notice that in many of the pictures, we are drinking - yes, again, it was the 90's and I'll leave it at that. Peace!!
