Working hard and having a blast at rehearsal for a new tribute project with some killer talent. Announcement coming soon. 🤘😎
Getting started on a fun new project with all these fine peeps. This band is going to focus on dance music from the 70s-Now, from Donna Summer to Dua Lipa. Can’t wait to share more 🤘😎

The guitarist and I do the “left-shark, right-shark” thing when we play California Gurls — suffice it to say, it’s actually pretty difficult to play and sing while wearing a furry shark head, but the audience loves it. 🤪
Raising my glass in thanks to all my band-fam and friends for all their help and support in surviving 2020.

It felt so good to be on stage in front of a live audience again with my bandfam in @gloria_estefan_tribute.
It felt so good to be on stage in front of a live audience again with my bandfam in @gloria_estefan_tribute. Given the current pandemic restrictions, the live audience was separated into pods and limited to a few hundred (it’s usually several thousand for this show). However, the City of Buena Park live-streamed the show on their Facebook page and YouTube channel. The band members were spaced much farther apart than usual, and any band members not singing wore masks. It’s gonna take a while for me to get used to the new normal, but it’s worth it in order to protect loved ones and still get to perform live shows.
I love writing and performing original music. However, it comes first and foremost from being a huge music fan, and from being inspired by learning and playing the music of other artists too.
In addition to the original bands and artists I work with, I play in several tribute and cover bands, including a @pink tribute, ‘Raise Your Glass’. Here’s a clip of us having a blast performing “18-Wheeler” live.
Doing our best to do justice to P!nk’s music is no small feat. P!nk is an amazing singer and performer, and her band is full of top-knotch musicians, including Eva Gardner on bass, Justin Derrico on guitar, and Mark Schulman on drums. I’ve seen them live several times, and it’s always an awesome, high-energy show.
