Lushy Back In Action - July 30, 2011

After a long hiatus Lushy began rehearsing about a month ago for an upcoming show. We have a new stripped down line-up which includes yours truly on guitar, trumpet and assorted noise-makers as well as new addition Shane Peck on the skins! Andy and Annabella have been busy writing some fresh new material that is super fun to play and I think you are going to enjoy! We will kick things off with a show at the newly re-modeled Vito's restaurant and lounge on Saturday, Aug. 19th. We hope to turn this into a monthly event so please come help us make this a huge success! Proprietor extraordinaire Greg Lundgren has done an amazing job of keeping the original vibe of the historic First Hill bar while making some much needed updates! If you haven't been yet this is a perfect excuse to come down. Make sure you check out the "Cougar Room" in back.....just ask.

ZomBcon Prom Night a big success! - October 30, 2010

My first gig singing with 80's Invasion for Prom Night Of The Living Dead at Neumo's was a fantastic night and I had tons of fun performing. Huge props to Jennifer Popochock for the amazing job she did on my Zombie make-up! And many thanks to my wife Rebecca for putting my Zombie prom outfit together! The crowd was amazing and I received many compliments for the band. I look forward to performing with them again! Our next show is Wednesday, November 24th (the night before Thanksgiving) at the High Dive. If you are in town for the holiday come on down! http://www.eightiesinvasion.com/index.html

Blowing Horn With Dudley Taft - October 16, 2010

Prom Night Of The Living Dead - October 13, 2010

If you love Halloween, Zombie flicks and 80's music, have I got the show for you. I will be performing my debut show with local 80's cover band '80's Invasion' on Friday, October 29th at Neumo's. This is the kick-off party for 'ZomBcon', a 3 day Zombie convention being held here in Seattle featuring the likes of Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange) and Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead films). For more info: http://www.zombcon.com

The band, and most of the crowd I'm sure, will be in full on Zombie make-up and costumes. Imagine John Hughes’ "Pretty in Pink" meets Romero’s "Night of the Living Dead". This should be the best Halloween costume party of 2010 and one hell of a good time!

Original Score Featured at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NY - October 5, 2010

I was commissioned to create a score for a short film featuring the work of designer Medina Vadache. Her clothing demonstrates a “fascinating and flawless intersection of modern art, architecture, and fashion.” The film was used to launch her collection during fashion week and was part of an art gallery installation that ran from September 3 – October 2 at The Vilcek Foundation located at 167 E 73rd.

Black Celebration @ The High Dive - June 3, 2010

Well it's an 80's theme of late as I have been asked to fill in on vocals for an 80's tribute night at the High Dive with Black Celebration, the local Depeche Mode tribute band. I am super psyched as fellow Still Falling member Dan Harper is in the group, as well as me being a huge DM fan from way back. I don't necessarily look much like Dave Gahan but I know those songs like the back of my hand so come out and have a fun nostalgic night in Fremont!

Rendezvous Grotto 2322 2nd Avenue.

Composition Lab Concert a Success. - April 27, 2010

Last night I took part as a composer in a Chamber Music concert performed by the Odeon String Quartet with the addition of guitar and flute. There were 11 composers pieces performed and mine had the honor of being first on the program. The musicians performed my piece very well and I was thrilled. It was also a pleasure to hear the other composers pieces and the Chapel at the Good Shepherd Center is an amazing sounding room!

The concert was recorded so look for the audio of my piece to be posted soon.

Thanks again to Tim Huling, the instructor who organized this, for a great experience!
