Fridays have been growing in popularity at the Portofino Hotel Lobby Bar in Redondo Beach,CA 206 Portofino Way, Redondo beach, CA 90277..from 6-9pm I play a wide range of music from jazz, blues, RnB, and originals..accompanied by an amazing percussionist. Word is spreading and the crowds have been increasing every week.

UP AND COMING - April 25, 2009

I am currently working on my third CD, and really excited about the tracks I have in the can so far. It should be out sometime this summer, and will offer a few nice surprises. One of which is having my daughter, Haley, who is 15, singing back-up on several songs!...and I'm telling you...this girl can sing!. She actually has a vocal coach, is studying guitar, piano, and is writing songs as well. (must be in the blood!)...I will put a few of the finished tunes on this site soon to hopefully wet your appetite while I finish up the project.
I've also been making movies!...Yea...a lifelong dream finally woke up and I filmed, acted, directed, edited, and scored a mocumentary of sorts, about a fictitious multi-dysfuncional family...The Moozacks. It's called "THE SMOOTH MOVE", and pokes a liberal dosage of fun at elevator music, smooth jazz, and the world of pharmaceutical sedation. I will also have excerpts of it posted on the site soon for your viewing...and if so desired purchasing. The movie was accepted to The First Take Film Festival last year in Augusta, GA. which I attended, getting my feet wet in the film festival world!. I have since done several music videos, and short films which I'll also post here soon.
