Side Project Saturday

Whats up everyone,

We have an interesting confluence of Root Glen related music for you guys, coming up on Saturday, August 10th…  For those of you who’ve made it out to see me or Root Glen several times, Saturday will be full of brand new songs and people, so don’t miss out!

Assuming we can pull ourselves back together after Andres’ birthday show on Friday the 9th at Rolf’s, Dave and I will both be doing shows with other bands on Saturday evening!  Thankfully, they’re close enough together that if you’re feeling motivated, you can probably make it to both..  Here’s the info:

6:30 to 7:30 pm – My side project, Graywood, will be making its live debut at Montclair Center Stage in Montclair NJ.  I’ll be doing about half the show solo, and then inviting Richie, Dan, and Joe up on stage to help me finish it off right!  For those of you wondering what your ears are in for, the songs are a bit of a blend between my solo acoustic sound, and the groove of Root Glen.  Oh, and its outside!!

 

 

applewagon

 

10pm – 1am – Dave’s band Applewagon, legends of the Hamilton College campus (from where Root Glen stole its name..) will be taking over Drom on Avenue A in NYC for 3 solid hours of groove.  They’re excellent musicians & a blast to see live.. and there’s also a rumor of a Root Glen mini-set during their break!

 

Be well, and hope to see you at both!

Amy & Jon’s wedding

amywedding

We got to play my good friend Amy’s wedding last Sunday at Liberty House in Jersey City, and she just emailed me this awesome shot.. Congrats again guys, and thanks again for having us, we had a blast!

…and that’s a True Story

Thanks for checking out my new site!  My good buddy, Kevin Eberle, built it to be the only place you’ll need to go to find all the info you need about my music- news, my show schedule, live tracks, and more!

 

I’ve been playing music in the central New Jersey area for about four years now in various capacities.  My first (non-campfire) live show was at the Meyersville Inn with Dave Moroney.  Dave is the lead singer in the band I’ve been playing with for the last three years, Root Glen.  Root Glen has been a blast, and allowed me the chance to play shows all over the northeast US, from Washington D.C., all the way up to Portland, ME.

 

I’m still playing with Root Glen these days, as well as wrapping up the writing for a solo CD.  I’ll be doing shows with both of those projects, as well as bar gigs and parties, so be sure to stop back on a regular basis to check out my calendar & event postings.  Thanks for visiting, and hope to see you at a show soon!
