Summer 2014

Summer 2014

This summer has been one of great shows and new experiences. McTuff performed at Blacksheep Family Reunion and Summer Meltdown, with a set at Bumbershoot on the way. The band played to a packed house at Seattle’s Nectar Lounge and joined forces with Skerik, Steve Moore, and Hans Teuber for two nights of horn-filled goodness. Outside of McTuff, I had the pleasure of recording on Bill Doerrfeld’s upcoming piano trio album along with Jon Hamar, bringing together Andy Coe and Evan Flory-Barnes for a Lick Trio gig, and maintaining Hardcoretet’s residency at the Seamonster. I’ve performed in Fremont, Columbia City, Cap Hill, Downtown, Redmond, Garberville, Portland, Eugene, Hood Canal, Kenmore, Tidewater, Gray’s Harbor, Yakima, Walla Walla, Darrington, Manson, Missoula, Billings, and Bozeman with more on the way. Oh, I also now play bass in a Lake Street Dive cover band.

On the personal side, I moved to Ballard and I WENT BUNGEE JUMPING! It was incredible.

Things are good. Music is fun. More to come.

July: McSummer Continues

McSummer 2013

Lots in store for both bands this month, with out-of-town trips for McTuff every weekend and Hardcoretet spending four days at Robert Lang Studios recording our third album. Highlights include Hardcoretet at the Jazz in the Valley festival in Ellensburg, McTuff at Tidewater, Oregon’s Blacksheep Family Reunion, and a gig with one of my favorite groups Richie Aldente. Looking forward to playing music all over the northwest!
