2023 - going going gone  

It's always nice to wind down one year while ramping up for the next - 2024 eagerly awaits the fresh start and longer days filled with new music, new friends, brisk skiing on slopes of white and the comfort of a cozy home, as well as friends and family gathering together.  I tip a glass of "kindness yet" to my dear olde' friends and tip still another in memory of those blessed souls who have gone ahead and crossed the veil too soon. 

A very special thanks to those who came out to hear my music live in 2023 (love that so musch) and an extra special thanks to the musicians that join me on stage - Bob Purdy, Colleen Kattau, Connie Walters, Rolland Brunet, and Lenny Printup, TamaraLee Shutt, any of you zelltoners out there. 

Keep an  eye out for my music in 2024 at venues like Shifty's Bar, Limerick, Ole My Darlin (The Fitz) and The Tasting Room Restaurant (Epicuse/Event Center).  

See you 'all next year.

Summertime and the living is ... smokin'  

The Canadian forest fires continue to rage up north and the smoke casts a shadow over some of summer's activities but we carry on and dance and sing and let the good times roll… 

Please join me at the Limerick Pub on Thursday July 6. I'll have Zelltone Alum - Bob Purdy with me. Bob has been busy the past few years backing up Bluesman Taz Cruz and now with the Ron Spenser Band so its great to catch him for a gig. Bob and I go way back, I better not say how far - I'll scare myself. He is a super talented, versatile bass player and I look forward to sharing a great night of music with him at the Limerick. 

The Meshuggah Sisters is side project birthed from the Yiddish word - Meshuggah. Antique Underground Syracuse business man and world traveler, Bruce Block introduced me to the word defined loosely as not given to practical matters and slightly crazy! And often used to refer to certain personages of the female gender (oy). Who can't get behind that. 

The group is fun and off the cuff, and serves up a recipe of home-spun and traditional tunes for your toe-tappin and struttin' pleasure. Join us as we roam through the Syracuse Arts and Crafts Show in St. Mary's Circle on Friday and Saturday afternoon July 28 and 29. Expect the Meshuggah Sisters to dish out entertaining songs on guitar, ukulele, percussion, washtub bass and who knows what else - add the vocal harmonies and crazy fun! The Syracuse Arts and Crafts Show is a great combination of roving musicians, the best Artwork the Northeast has to offer, and classic food truck fare. Summeeeertime and the living is easy…  

Check my August schedule for gringa grooves with Dos XX and a daring duo at the Dinosaur BBQ in the infamous Bone Yard. Meantime enjoy the warm weather and thunderous storms of life. Have a great summer - enjoy! 

Blabla Blog  

I am performing with some old friends and some new, the band is in flux and reinventing itself with Rolland Brunet still holding down the bass and Lenny Printup on the drum. We ride into out next gig at Shifty's (6/8) as a trio. 

I have my eyes out for other players as well, perhaps a guitar or piano - that would be a blast. Tamaralee, Dan and Curtis are off to new musical adventures and I wish them well. 

My nephew Brad  Zell is a talent classical pianist and farly new to the guitar - a beautiful player with a great ear and killer chops. He will join me for a few tunes at Shifty's Bar on Burnet Ave in Syracuse. I continue to work with good friend and wonderful vocalist/songwriter Colleen Kattau. Kattau will also drop in to the band at Shifty's! Be there or be missing out. 

New web site - onward…
