New Band Video — Toxic

It seems somewhat appropriate to be posting our version of Britney Spears’s Toxic the day after the courts ruled in her favor to remove her father from her conservatorship. In reality, I just found out that this video was finished and wanted to post it as soon as possible. This is the Jim Wallace Gypsy […]

This Week’s Shows 9.26.21

Two very different dates with the band this week. The first was an afternoon benefit performance in Altrincham for the Music Place, which is a community music education center for kids. It was held at a pretty interesting place called Stutter and Twitch. This record label/coffee shop/record shop/cocktail and beer spot has a little stage […]

This Week’s Shows 9.12.21

It’s been a busy week with three very different bookings…actually I should be getting ready to go to a fourth in Eccles at the moment but I had a last minute cancellation so here I am. On Wednesday, I played a corporate fundraiser for a mental health charity at the storied Midland Hotel. According to […]

This Week’s Shows 8.11.21

It feels like and has indeed been forever since I’ve posted one of these weekly roundups. Except for a handful of live performances here and there, the pandemic has pretty much put the kibosh on any kind of live music for me for well over a year now. I’m very grateful to say that it […]

Hello 2020/2019 Wrap Up

Happy New Year all! Yes, I know it’s a bit late. I closed out 2019 with three rather big and very different gigs all within a week. It was a bit crazy and I logged a lot of miles, but it was fun. I played lead alto for a made-for-tv christmas special at the Beacon […]

Touché – Clarinet Duet with Fixed Media by Christopher Hopkins

I’ve had the opportunity to perform Christopher Hopkins duet for two clarinets and fixed media a few times recently and have really come to love the piece. Hopkins describes the piece this way: Touché is a single movement duo-concertante in a toccata style. Two clarinet soloists are united in a musical contest, between themselves and […]
