I've been doing a lot of biking this summer. It calms my mind and inspires me. I listen to tunes and enjoy the views. Here are a few photos from one of my bike journeys this summer. Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park.

Gordy Johnson and I are loving our Thursday nights 8-11 at the Lex in St. Paul. There's always a lively crowd, and it's a very comfortable space with great food. They also have a new rooftop bar where you can grab a drink.

Check my calendar for dates.

   Hope to see you!

Waiting for spring.

Meanwhile I'm STILL working on my original compositions, doing some fine tuning so to speak. I'll keep you updated when I have something.

Cheers!

Wow, that summer went fast. My friends and I have been having a blast performing at the new Lex, and Birch's on the Lake, as well as several other performances.

I really enjoyed the smoked trout eggs benedict that I had at the new Nine Twenty Five restaurant at the new Hotel Landing in Wayzata. Gordy and I played for a brunch there and enjoyed some great food.

I'm looking forward to some cooler weather and fall activities. I do hate to see summer go, but best to stay in the moment and enjoy.

Cheers.

Happy Spring! 

Well, my trio has finished up a 4 year stint at Parma 8200 last Saturday, it was the end of a great running gig. Spring is a good time for new adventures. We're ready. I'll be doing some more recording in the months ahead. Watch my website and iTunes for new releases.

Meanwhile Gordy Johnson and I will be performing at The Lexington in St. Paul which is a fantastic spot. Check the calendar for dates.

You can also catch my piano, bass, guitar trio at Birch's on the Lake in Long Lake which is another excellent spot.

I hope to see you! That's all for now!

Cheers!

I'm currently putting the arrangements together for my forthcoming CD release. It will be mostly originals, and some of my favorite compositions by other artists. Stay tuned!

I'm looking forward to performing solo piano this Friday for the St. Paul Guest Artist Series. I'll be doing several more concerts in 2017, and a small tour this fall to promote my forthcoming album/cd release.

  My trio is performing most Saturdays at Parma 8200 in Bloomington, Minnesota. The trio consists of Gordy Johnson, Phil Hey and myself.

More to come...

I really enjoy the autumn. The colors, the cool air, the sounds of the leaves, I can dig out my sweaters.

Anyway, I'm working on some great projects right now. Doing the music for a web/video series, producing some music projects.

I'm performing locally 3 nights a week at Birch's on the Lake in Long Lake, Lund's and Byerly's Kitchen in Wayzata, and Parma 8200 in Bloomington and the Marsh in Minnetonka. Check my calendar for times and locations.

I had fun the other night at the Matter pre fundraiser party performing with Darius Rucker, he sang "Fly Me to the Moon". Gene Simmons was also there, interesting guy.

Stay tuned!

My new release, "Solo Piano Standards Volume 2", is now available on CD,

 

and downloads.
