Bluegrass & Beer 

This Thursday we convene at the Acoustic in Bridgeport for another episode of our long-running celebration of all things bluegrass-y, this month featuring The Korey Brodsky Band.

Korey recently released his debut CD, "Cruzin'", to great acclaim and you can purchase your very own copy at this show.

Music begins at 8...

Saturday Night... 

The Korey Brodsky Band performs at the Suzuki School in Sandy Hook to continue promoting his new CD, "Cruzin'".

Great listening environment with complimentary wine and munchies--a very good deal!

Cool Struttin'... 

On Sunday I join my friends Pam, Howard, and Chris for an early evening performance of the Great American Songbook (plus 3 or 4 of my compositions...) at Bethel's Pizzeria Lauretano. Reservations are recommended--see you there...


This week I continue my run at Sacred Heart University in the play "tick, tick...Boom!". This is a fabulous production, catch it if you can: Thurs/Fri/Sat at 8, Sun at 3.

Also on Sunday I make my way hastily to Pizzaria Lauretanto to join up with Cool Struttin' for a 6 PM hit--always love playing with these guys!

See you there...

The Stage 

I'll be a member of the band for the Sacred Heart University Theater Department's production of "tick, tick...Boom!" for the next couple weeks.

The show opens Thursday, October 27 and runs through Sunday, November 6.

CD Release Show 

Tonight my friend Korey Brodsky begins a series of shows to promote the release of his debut CD, "Cruizin". We hit the stage at Best Video at 8 PM.

Lots of Live... 

This week promises to be a good one: Thursday night it's bluegrass with Lost Dog at My Place; on Saturday it's brunch at Daryl's House with G Rockwell and the Still River Ramblers; then later that afternoon I make my way quickly over to the Ives Center in Danbury to appear with Chris Berardo and the Desberardos; Sunday afternoon at Cafe 9 in New Haven is a songwriter-in-the-round with Rex Fowler and Marc Douglas Berardo.


See you there!

This Week... 

Three shows: Thursday at local watering hole fave The Sitting Duck Tavern with The Nameless Trio; Saturday an appearance with the Korey Brodsky Band at BenFest; and on Sunday the Old Town Hall Band performs at the benefit Concert Across America. See you at one--or all...

What A Week! 

Grand events upcoming this week: on Saturday I join the Korey Brodsky Band at the Americana Festival taking place on the grounds of the Ives Center in Danbury. This event precedes the Bela Fleck/Chris Thile concert at the very same venue. That's a big one!

Then on Sunday at Cafe 9 I accompany my best mate Mark Mirando on his set opening for legendary songwriter Gary Burr. I'm thrilled to be performing with both of those gifted artists.

As if that wasn't enough, also this week on Thursday Lost Dog resumes its residency at Newtown's My Place, and on Saturday morning Goldrush appears as part of the fund raiser for St. Jude's hospital at Lyman Orchards.

See you there...
