NAMI Fundraiser - May 4, 2012

On May 4th, I was fortunate to be able to perform with some old and new friends at Allentown Symphony Hall for the benefit of NAMI - the National Association for Mental Illness. It was a fun night for all, but more important, it was a night of support and awareness for this worthy cause.

I performed Steve Howe's "Mood for a Day" and "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams. To set the tone at the beginning of Classical Gas, I added the Andante Sostenuto from Mauro Giuliani's Opus 61 "Grand Overture" - just to add some drama and spice it up a bit!

Crayola Customer Service Week - October 7, 2011

In October I performed some songs and demonstrated several yoga postures for the customer service department of Crayola / Binney & Smith. The lecture / performance was given on "Appreciation Day" for the customer service reps with the intent of showing them various techniques to cope with stress at the workplace.

2009 Moravian Guitar Fest - June 14, 2009

This year's Moravian Guitar Festival was truly great. I was in attendance for two incredible master lessons and solo concerts.
The first lesson was with Laurence Juber, solo guitarist and former guitarist with Paul McCartney's "Wings". The study dealt with open tunings for solo guitar.
The second lesson was with classical guitar virtuoso Jason Vieux. If Jason tours your area, he is a must see, very powerful classical guitarist.

BLISSOLOGY VIDEO - August 16, 2008

A new video of the song "Blissology" has been released and can be viewed on the You-Tube website. The video features film footage from St. John USVI and photos from both Sydney and Queensland Australia. Also included is some undersea footage and a few cameos by myself. Please log on and check it out. Four minutes of relaxing bliss!

MUSIKFEST - August 1, 2008

From August 1st through the 10th, I'll be celebrating Musikfest with friends and various artists in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. If you have never experienced this celebration of music, it's definitely worth the trip to Bethlehem.

Moravian Guitar Festival - June 24, 2007

On June second I was fortunate enough to take part in the Moravian College 7th Annual Guitar Festival -"Jazz on the Classical and More". In addition to the wonderful concert recitals I took part in a master lesson from the jazz icon, Gene Bertoncini (guitarist for many including the legendary tonight show orchestra). As always, it's great to mix with such wonderful artists. If you ever get the chance, you must see Christopher Ladd perform live (Christopher is the professor of guitar at The Hartt School of Music in Connecticut).
