Another Ooops!

My performances at this weekend’s Gem Faire (at Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville) have fallen through but I’m told that I’ll be back with Gem Faire for other shows (Sac, San Fran, San Raf, etc.) later this year- March and beyond. I’ll keep you posted on that in my monthly email. If you’re not already… Continue reading

Moments Review

I received the following review (below) for my CD “Moments” from Voodoo Child magazine (Issue 67) Spring 2005. Voodoo Child is publication devoted to Jimi Hendrix and his music. Guitarist Emmett Chapman invented The Stick in 1969. The instrument looks like the oversized neck of a 12-string guitar with no body. Looking like a stick,… Continue reading

Over the weekend I performed at the 47th Annual Art Fiesta in Sacramento. Compliments of fellow Stick player, Terry Telson, you can view a gallery of photos he took of me in action. Take a look over here.
