I Released My First Album 10 Years Ago

I Released My First Album 10 Years Ago

March 13, 2015

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since I produced Save It for a Rainy Day, my first album. I’ve made great strides in musical ability over the past decade, and it’s fun to listen back to hear where I was back then.

What’s more, I’m thrilled to have the album AND sheet music newly available on Watchfire Music.

Playing Jazz at Another Great Party

Playing Jazz at Another Great Party

March 4, 2015

I’ve now had the pleasure of playing piano for United Therapeutics twice – and what a special night it was both times! I already wrote about the 1920’s speakeasy that I played in last December, and last month the event was themed like a classic car repair garage, with so much attention paid to every last detail.

The crew from EMT set up all the lighting and sound and were great to work with. Thanks to everyone!

Live Music for the Capitol Hill Restoration Society

Live Music for the Capitol Hill Restoration Society

February 26, 2015

Playing for the Capitol Hill Restoration Society’s 60th anniversary was probably one of the most educational gigs I’ve had for a long time. We heard all sorts of great stories from long time Capitol Hill residents that spanned the evolution of the neighborhood to the legal mechanisms of city development to the story of some people who clasped arms in front of a bulldozer to save a historic site.

Between all of that was a lots of food, cake, and live jazz piano provided by Yours Truly, in the lovely new Baxter Hall at St. Mark’s. Also, they posted CHRS 60th Anniversary photos. Overall, it was a great night and if you’re in the area I recommend signing up for a Capitol Hill tour!

Valentine’s Day Music at the DoubleTree

Valentine’s Day Music at the DoubleTree

February 18, 2015

Our Valentine’s performance was a total blast! It had all the important elements: great people, amazing venue, and of course, love.

We spent the evening singing through nearly all of the love songs we knew – lots of jazz standards, some latin, and some pop as the guests rotated slowly around us, enjoying the music and crystal-clear views of the Pentagon and downtown Washington.

We’re Playing on Valentine’s Day!

We’re Playing on Valentine’s Day!

February 8, 2015

Tessa and I are looking forward to Valentine’s Day – when else do you get to sing a bunch of jazzy love songs with your spouse? This year Valentine’s falls on a Saturday, and we’ll be performing a couple of sets from 5 – 7:30 at the Skydome Lounge in Arlington, with beautiful panoramic views of the Washington skyline.

1920’s-themed Holiday Party

1920’s-themed Holiday Party

January 24, 2015

This just may have been the most fun themed party I’ve been to. It was set in the Roaring 20’s with a live jazz band, professional dancers, horse races, photo booths, while I played solo jazz piano in the ‘speakeasy.’

The decorations were superb, the people were a blast and the food was incredible! I hope they do it again next year …
