Upcoming Performance


I will be returning to Vicky’s of Santa Fe in Indian Wells, CA on Monday, January 19, 2015 from 7-9 pm for a performance of my original songs and a few selections from my first three albums written by some of my favorite composers. I have some new unrecorded material I have composed recently which I will perform as well, so if you will be in the California area, I hope you will join me and a killer band for an outstanding night of music.
