Some Photos from Last Month's CMJ Show 

Hi friends,

Last month I played a showcase hosted by The Brink & DATA Touring at The303 here in NYC for CMJ.  It was a great night and Candice from The Brink put up a few photos from the night that I thought you all might enjoy.  November is shaping up to be a relatively quiet month, at least on the public side... December should see things kick up a notch or two.  Get ready. :)

Jones, director and choreographer of the musical Fela! that was such a success on… Read more

Ireland Trip 

This past week I travelled to Northern Ireland, splitting my time between Belfast (to attend a wedding) and St. John's Point in Donegal.  Both were lovely experiences.  Watching 2 friends get married, meeting all their friends and loving families, listening to all the speeches, singing with the band... The wedding was all kinds of fun.  Funny and sweet in all the right places, it was just about everything that one could hope for.  Then a drive (my first on the left hand side) across the country to Donegal… Read more
