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.

Coming Up: McTuff on Tour, Hardcoretet CD Release, and Stand-Out Shows

With so much great stuff on the horizon, I thought I’d take a second to highlight what’s coming up! McTuff will be on the road, Hardcoretet will be releasing a new CD at a very special Seattle show, and some awesome double and triple bills are in the works.

First, McTuff is piling into a gigantic green van and making our way to Colorado and back. We’ve got stops in Richland, Moscow, Salt Lake City, Telluride, Denver (with Pimps of Joytime), Missoula, Livingston, Billings, Big Sky, Bozeman, and Butte with more on the way. We’ll also be hitting the west coast in May, but I’ll leave that for another day.

Next up, Hardcoretet will finally be releasing our new record, produced with a generous grant from 4Culture, on April 8th at a very special Tractor Tavern show with one of my favorite bands, Grammy-nominated Kneebody! We’ve got preview tracks up now and will be releasing more as the show gets closer. GO TO THIS SHOW!

In the midst of all that, there are some great double and triple bills happening. McTuff and Industrial Revelation will be playing their first bill together on February 22nd at Jaam Rek (formerly Hidmo), then on March 29th at Goodfoot and April 5th at LoFi, McTuff will be teaming up with Funky2Death and Bucket of Honey for a funk/soul revue. The three bands did this last year in Portland and it was incredible. Again, GO TO THESE SHOWS!
