Show Tuesday night May 11 in Milwaukee - CHICK SINGER NIGHT!
Caroline's, Milwaukee -- 8 pm shart start time [Click here for full details]
I'll be part of a showcase that will also include Carmen Nickerson, Shae Fiol, Katie Beth, Annie Denison, Nora Collins ("chicklette"), and director, Alaria Taylor. We will all be backed by the incomparable CSN band (The Rockin' Roosters) and will provide backing vocals for each other on some tunes. This is always a total blast!
If you' re in the area please plan to come - being an out-of-towner, I could use some folks to cheer me on. If you know folks in the Milwaukee area please encourage them to come! It's 7 performers for the price of one!

JAZZ EP on the way!
Randy (Green, of Randy's Recording) and I just finshed mixing/mastering an upcoming EP release featuring 7 jazz tracks...5 standards and 2 originals. This project came about as a result of a special show I did last year as a fundraiser for Good Shepherd church's High School Ministry, helping them raise money for a youth conference in New Orleans in summer of 2009. More info coming soon....shooting for July or August release!

The band I recently joined, WILD HEART (country Top 40), has lots of shows on the schedule for 2010 including these in May: Bratfest (May 28), Country Corners in McFarland (May 29), New Glarus Community Festival (May 30). Lots more beyond that! In this 5-piece group I play guitar, keys, and fiddle and sing (backup and some lead). We perform several shows every month and it's always a blast. See any of these links for the full band schedule and dust off your dancing boots:
