Olsen Twins Ghostlight Ensemble

I was honored to be invited to be a part of a show with great improvisers built around Wally Shoup being in town. I’m playing as part of Olsen Twins Ghostlight Ensemble, who I know through the excellent guitar player Scott Eave. Every single player on this show is a great player, and it the music is going to be amazing.

I still haven’t gotten an answer on the meaning behind the groups name…

WTF 2020

We are continuing on with our monthly show at the Jade Lounge. For January, we had our great friends Bill, Jerry, and Andrew come to jam with us. It was a great time, and an excellent way to start the new year.

Clodewerks 2 Release Details

I realized I’ve shared on social media, but not here, that my new album is being released January 24th. It’s going to have 13 tracks and is a collection of recordings from the last 8 years. I’m really happy to be releasing this music, and moving on to the next project in 2020.

NW Loopfest

NW Loopfest was one day in August, but for me it was months of organizing beforehand and posting videos afterwards. This week is a big one for Loopfest, as I have uploaded the last video from the 2019 Loopfest, and am excited to announce the 2020 Loopfest!

Here’s all of the video from 2019: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQ-siEB7QOARjNRfQdjSfi4scSd0-Wag7

The 2020 NW Loopfest will be at the Waypost in N Portland on Saturday, April 18th!

Loop Madness

This week, I’m excited to spend an evening with my good friends and fellow loopers at Loop Madness. This showcase is a quarterly get together of looping and experimental music put together by Brent Swanson of the Exosphere Project.

I’ve been polishing my solo set in preparation for the album release, and am very hopeful that this performance will be my best yet!

In preparation for Clodewerks 2, here is a music video I put together for the track Winter. It’s created from a Silly Symphony cartoon with the same title that I pulled from the public domain. Enjoy!

Clodewerks 2

Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving eve is not something I have considered a holiday in the past. However, I’ve learned that Wednesday night is a great time to party off the work stress in preparations for the family stress.

This year, let Waffle Taco be part of the holiday healing process, and join us for a great time at the Eagle Eye Tavern!

Tuba Christmas

Last week was Halloween, so now we wade into the holiday season. I was excited to get my annual email reminder to register for Tuba Christmas, and thought now would be the best time to remind you to put it in your calendar.

Coming off of last year’s win for best costume of a Euphonium, I have to deliver again this year. I haven’t decided on anything yet, but the creative process has begun.
