IT'S TIME TO ROCK! THE 21st ANNUAL NIGHT OF 100 ELVISES IS HERE!!! SATURDAY DEC. 6th at the Hunt Valley Inn (www.nightof100elvises.com) I'm very excited and fortunate to be able to share the stage with bandmates Scott Mattern on lead guitar, Sam Goodall on bass, and Mark Lucas on drums. We hit the BALLROOM STAGE at Midnight! This party is one of the most unique in the world bar none! SEE YOU THERE!!

19th Annual HONFEST!!! 3:00 p.m. Sunday June 10,2012 I'm on the Bacardi Lounge stage for the 4th consecutive year! Thanks to Eric Willison I'll be sharing the bill with other talented tunesmiths from the Baltimore Songwriter's Association. Appearing alongside me will be longtime friends and cohorts Ronnie Warner on bass and Bruce Lily on percussion!! This is one of Baltimore's premier street festivals you won't want to miss so come on down for the party!! 

Wow! Talk about synchronicity! I was at a New Years Eve party where DJ Batman was spinning, and during a break he invited me to be a guest on his Annual New Year 'Hair Of The Dog' radio broadcast on 98.1 Irie Radio located in the treetop penthouse of the tiki bar at Seacrets Nightclub bar and restaurant. Traditionally he will showcase a special guest in the middle of Beatle Hour and have them sing acapella on a song of their choice. Luckily I had a bag of harps with me so I chose to do 'Apple Scruffs', the George Harrison ode from 'All Things Must Pass'. Totally off the cuff but it came off great! Thanks DJ Batman! What a way to kick off the NEW YEAR 2012!!!
