Thank you for visiting my web site.
Looking forward to a great 2016 and sprinting out of the gate with some great gigs where I hope we can catch up and hang out a bit!  Besides the usual great venues of  Arrivederci, Five O’ Three and Corkscew, I have been teeing it up a bit at Langdon Farms Grill and Aurora Colony Vineyards as well!  There are a few really cool things coming up soon that I am super excited about.  Christo's in Salem, Otter Crest and The Jazz Station are on the schedule and I can't wait! I love the challenge of performing in front of new audiences and making new friends and fans! The venues are different, each requiring a somewhat altered approach and so it always thrilling to work with any number of my favorite musicians, each bringing their unique talents and vision to the gig.  Sometimes I feel like I am in total command and other times, hanging on for dear life!  Jazz does that to you. Making great music with fabulous musicians is one of the things in life that makes getting up each day worthwhile. So, here are a few upcoming gigs that I am getting up for. Hope to see you!

I am fortunate to have a fairly busy schedule with my great cover band, Pressure Point  We are playing events all over the Northwest at The Sentinel, Portland Art Museum, Convention Center, Reed College, Blackbutte, Suniver, The Woodmark and Faimont hotels and a bunch more great locations and venues throughout the year.  If you have an event that requires some great jazz as well as dance music ranging from big band to contemporary, Pressure Point is pretty hard to beat!
Here is a link to the band’s promotional video
I have noticed that house parties have become popular and wanted to mention that I could be available to perform at your next house party with any number of the A List musicians that I am privileged to perform with.
 Check out the video section on this page. A few independent film makers have chosen my music as the sound track for their short films. There is also a clip of pianist Joe Millward and I performing in the KMHD studio on Lynn Darroch's show "Bright Moments.
