The New Year... 

...starts with a bang: a week of playing guitar in the Waterbury Arts Magnet School's theatrical production of "Smoke on the Mountain" under the musical direction of my man, the brilliant John Mobilio. Then Annette Homann's CD release in Manhattan on the 15th followed the next night with Korey Brodsky at Cafe 9 in New Haven.

Speaking of KBB, look for some studio recordings (and a super-cool video...) to be released in the next month or so...

Also in store: more solo concerts here and there--watch the Shows page for those listings.
