Wow… time flies.


So, I truly suck at keeping this online portal updated sometimes. I’ve had some really fun shows this summer. Music of Paul McCartney shows at SPACE and Fest For Beatle Fans with Phil Angotti & Co on drums/vocals. Also our John Lennon Retrospective show at City Winery to a packed house was very memorable–thanks to everyone who came out to it. The Donovan show with John San Juan at my monthly Third Thursday Wishbone North residency was fabulous as well–another full house there. I played at the zoo, a winery in Michigan, and my monthly ‘first Thursday’ gigs at Hyatt Centric in the River North area of Chicago continue.

I’ve seen some great concerts too: Me’shell Ndegeocello, Graham Nash, Bahamas, Los Lobos at Old Town School, U2, Phish for the 2nd time was a blast, and more.
