Chuck & Lizzy Loeb Germany Tour – May 23rd – June 1st

I’m really looking forward to an upcoming tour of Germany later this month where I’ll be performing with the legendary guitarist Chuck Loeb, and daughter, the prodigiously gifted singer/songwriter, Lizzy Loeb. I’ll be backing up both Chuck and Lizzy on their original material, and we’ll be performing festivals/clubs in Dusseldorf, Berlin, Darmstadt and Stuttgart. Visit their individual sites above for more details. Obviously, any tips (…ideally culinary in nature…) for me in these various cities will be gratefully received 🙂

I wanna give some shout-outs to…

– Bassist/MC/Composer & Bandleader Jorscan AKA Jordan Scannella, who is performing a very special birthday set of his originals and favorite cover songs at Rockwood 2 this coming Friday May 11th from 11-1. The amazing Jorscan group will be performing for the first hour featuring Adam “minkles” Minkoff (guit), Romain “Roco” Collin (keys), and Josh “Giuntelligence” Giunta (drums). I will be sitting in alongside some special guests for the second hour…believe me when I say that this will be a great night to remember!!

Matt Cusson….is an amazing singer/songwriter with whom I had the great  pleasure of guesting alongside during his set at the Bitter End last month. Matt is a wonderful singer, songwriter and keys man. Please do yourselves a favor and go check him out online!

That’s it for now…more coming very soon.

Thanks as always for reading and supporting. Until the next time…
