I just confirmed I last minute show at Flagstaff Brewing Company this Saturday January 5th, 10pm. Since its so cold up in the Arizona mountains I hope that all of Flagstaff will come out and keep me warm! Tell all your Flagstaff friends 🙂
I’ve scheduled a last minute gig this Friday, December 7th at the yearly December Nights festival in Balboa Park with San Diego’s House of Sweden. The House of Pacific Relations is made up of groups like the House of Sweden from nearly 30 other countries. Many of these countries have cottages where the groups meet and carry out the objectives of the organization. The cottages are arranged in a ring that encloses a courtyard and stage where the performances are held.
Balboa Park December Nights, the nation’s premier holiday festival, will take place for the 35th consecutive year on Friday, Dec. 7, 5-10pm, and Saturday, Dec. 8, noon-10pm. As always, the event brings families and friends together to spread holiday joy, learn more about the cultural value of Balboa Park and kick-off the “most wonderful time of the year.”
Participating Balboa Park museums open their doors free of charge from 5-9 pm both evenings and more than 300,000 visitors are expected to experience the joy of San Diego’s largest free community festival. Those who attend will participate in a truly multicultural experience, enjoying food, music and entertainment from around the world.
Revelers can watch top-notch musical and dance performances, enjoy delicious and diverse food choices and help spread a heavy dose of holiday cheer. Some of the more well-known traditions include food from around the globe at the International Christmas Festival at the House of Pacific Relations Cottages; the annual Santa Lucia Procession at the Plaza de California; unique gift shopping at the museum stores and with the artisans of Spanish Village; and musical and dance presentations from the San Diego Junior Theatre, San Diego Civic Youth Ballet, Del Cerro Baptist’s Christmas Story Tree, and more.
I’m playing a last minute show at Groove on the Grove today June 1st at 5pm in Jersey City close to the Path Station Grove Street! It’s kind of windy right now but I’m sure we can keep the rain away if you come out to see my show!
I’m also doing two more shows in NYC at Gizzi’s Cafe on the 6th and Ella Lounge on the 7th. Check out all upcoming gigs here!
I just landed a last minute show in Baltimore, MD this Wednesday May 16th. I’m playing at Cyclops (30 West North Ave.) with Baltimore band American Folklore and NYC singer/songwriter Anthony DaCosta. After that I’ll be heading up to Philadelhia, PA for a show at Connie’s Ric Rac on Thursday. I hope to see a lot of friendly faces on the shows!
Last night I played at the Fresh Brewed Coffee House in Myrtle Beach, SC and when they heard that I had a few days off they kindly invited me to do another show on Monday January 9th. So around 5.30pm I’ll play some songs in the front room.
If you can’t catch me in Myrtle Beach you might want to try South Port, NC where I’m playing January 11th at the Playhouse 211.

I also did a house concert in Hartsville the other day. I think house concerts are the best because they’re so intimate and you get to meet so wonderful people. It’s really easy to host a house concert too and I’ll come and play in your living room if you want to. Here’s some simple guidelines for how you host a house concert: how to throw a house concert
Here’s some pics from the house concert in Hartsville.
