So excited to announce a great new project. BLUE CONFUSION is the name of the new band. I've teamed up with two fantastic musicians, Todd Mihan and Jorge Pertuz, and we have managed to get ourselves a little recording deal! This is an old fashioned power trio, I'm on bass and vocals, Todd on guitar and Jorge on drums. Todd is an accomplished recording artist and songwriter in addition to being a worldclass guitarist, and we have so far colaborated on four new original songs, and they're so good that we're headed to the studio in early June. I've worked with Jorge, my favorite drummer, for a few years now, and this project has finally been a perfect match for his and my rhythm-section aspirations. That's all for now - new songs, some big shows, and other cool things are in the pipeline - STAY TUNED!

What a thrill to open for Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldi on their acoustic tour when they stopped at
the Paramount Hudson Valley, Peekskill, NY

I've been lucky over the years to share the stage with many great musicians. Here are a few of them and a couple of stories.

Guy Davis

Acoustic Blues at its finest. Guy Davis is spell-binding. I remember when I opened for him I did a quick sound check after him. I played a little harmonica, and I remember feeling so nervous to play in front of him - he's a real player, I consider myself just a harp hacker. But when I went back to the dressing room he told me I sounded good on the harp! Made my night. I'm sure he was just trying to be nice.
