First and foremost, I was very excited to see my face on the cover of METRONOME MAGAZINE this month. For those who don't know, Metronome is a long standing publication here in the New England area that celebrates local and national music. In fact, this year marks the 30th ANNIVERSARY of the publication!

I was very flattered that Brian and the good folks over at Metronome not only decided to give my new CD The Friday Night Consortium a very positive review in the October issue, but to also interview me and publish a really nice cover story in the November issue. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, you can pick up a copy at most Boston area music stores and select music venues, or you can subscribe to the paper by calling them at (978) 957-0925.
We had a great Halloween show at Toad this year, and I want to thank all of the good folks who came out and partied with us. We appreciate your love and support! We will be booking another event over at Toad soon. In the meantime be sure to come check us out at THE BACK PAGE in LOWELL on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 20th!
We always have lots of fun at THE BACK PAGE, and I hope you all will join us that night. We will have some special guests performing with us as well, so don't miss out!
In anticipation of our Lowell event, I will be making a stop in at my old stomping grounds on the campus of U MASS Lowell to visit my good buddy Mike Flynn on ALMOST ACOUSTIC on WUML 91.5 FM. I'll be going on the air around 12:30 pm and spinning some tunes from the new album, so if you live in the Lowell area be sure to tune in. If you're not in the Lowell area you can still listen on line. The link is here:
I hope you all have a good weekend! If you're looking for something to do, I will be sitting in with my friend Pat Loomis at Sonny Walker's tonight, and on Sunday I will be playing some blues with my good buddy Paul Fudin at Glen's in Newburyport (and Pat will be playing sax that night too!) Hope to see you all soon!
