It was an interesting show for me and reminded me more of my days playing Thursday night shows at Sportsman’s Pub than of… Continue reading Duluth, MN!!!
Check out the photos below from my final show of the tour – at the BP Green Gas Station in L.A. Playing for a small crowd and hundreds of gas tank filler-uppers was lots of fun.

Day #2 in San Francisco! After spending all night partying with the kids from Europe and getting virtually no sleep, I jumped in my car and drove across the Golden Gate Bridge.

Last night’s show at Lestat’s in San Diego totally rocked and was a fitting kick-off to the tour. Ivan Cheong opened the evening and was followed by one of the most technically-gifted guitarists I have ever met, Mark Kephart. Mark was, to put it simply, amazing. I was headlining for some reason, and took advantage… Continue reading Tour Officially Launched!! Download MP3s from Last Night's Show!
