New Band Projects:

By Sunday, March 22, 2015 Music No Comments

I am currently putting together a new project, (possibly called) Bar 38, a NYC-based group that will focus on rock and pop repertoire, arranged in a modern jazz style, with vibes and MalletKAT as the lead instrument. So far, I’ve been jamming with various NYC musicians, checking out a bunch of players and figuring out what instrumentation I’d like to use. The goal will be to make a record this spring, and start doing local gigs by the summer. Also, I’m planning a quartet recording, as sort of a follow-up to Connections Volume One and Two, which I recorded and released while still living in San Diego a couple years ago. I plan to use vibes/guitar/bass/drums as the instrumentation, with perhaps a guest or two joining in (sax, trumpet?). Also, I’ve started a new band with my good friends (guitarist) Aaron Bleiweiss and (saxophonist) Alex Vargas, along with extraordinary New York vocalist Nicole Lund. No name yet, but we’re jamming, and it’s going to be hot! It’s been a while since I’ve been out playing regularly or making a studio record, so I am excited to get these new entities rolling! Stay tuned for updates…
