Ro Sham Bo at Pop's Bar—San Francisco, CA

I sing tenor in the Bay Area a cappella group Ro Sham Bo. First, I'll be performing a solo set of my own music on voice and synthesizer, then I and my a cappella cohort will sing a variety of tunes. If you like jazz, funk, soul, salsa, or anything in between (or if you just appreciate great live musicianship), then check out the show!

Music from 6:00-9:00pm

Back to the Grind Coffeehouse—Riverside, CA

I'll be performing a set of original music and progsoul covers at of Back to the Grind Coffeehouse, "the premier entertainment spot in downtown Riverside." Fill your stomach with a latte and a sandwich, then fill your ears with my tunes. Dancing highly recommended.


Stick around to see the other performer of the night, Quentin Purviance. He's an old friend and a wonderful, creative soul. Together we founded Mr. Kit the Band, the hottest neo-soul quartet ever grown in the Central Valley. To hear what we've done together, roll on over to my Music page and check out Mr. Kit's releases!

Mendocino Music Festival Big Band

I play alto saxophone in the annual gathering of the Mendocino Festival Big Band—this time around will be my fourth consecutive year with the ensemble, and I'm stoked that we'll be fronted once again by superstar Kim Nalley. The entire festival takes place right on the Mendocino bluffs, making this night of classic jazz, funk, soul, and more a beautiful occasion all-around.
