So it's not only my birthday week but also two of my best long time friends that I have had the privilege of sharing the stage with for over 20 years. B Moore and I go way back to Okoboji days of jazz bands, Sunday jazz trio at Crescent Beach, the night at the Garage in Boji when I sang the same verse to "Crash" for 20 minutes, and "The Lemmings" extravaganza where I saw some stuff I never thought I'd see...and I've loved it all.

Brando (Sugarbush) and I met in '04 at Captains Getaway in Boji when he was Giggin with Paul Wright. I was sort of in band limbo for a while and then ran into him again at a certain karaoke bar in Waterloo. I had just made a fool of myself singing piano man on top of a table and explained that I was in need of a bass player and a piano player. He said, "well I have both for you." Speaking of himself and Justin Appel on keys. We rehearsed once that following week and played a gig at the old "4th n Main" the night after. A few months after that we started recording the album "Atmosphere." We haven't stopped playing together ever since.

This is to be a night of celebration!! Celebrate our friends...friendships...family....and music. I hope you can make it out and have a great time with myself and my full band!!
