Seems hard to believe, but exactly 5 years ago I was signing the papers to retire from IBM after a career that had spanned 36 years. I said in my post that day that I hoped to “take an extended break to play music, read, travel, work on our house, spend time with my children, […]
It’s that time of year again, and audio mastering engineer Ian Davis is reminding us to celebrate “Dynamic Range Day“. This is about improving the sound of the audio recordings that we buy on CD and stream through the Internet. Specifically, it’s about compression.
I have gotten out of the habit of announcing all of our Rock City Band appearances here on the blog, in part because I’m now keeping a mailing list for those who are interested. May is a particularly busy month for us, with four appearances coming up, so I thought I’d make an exception and […]
Rock City Band is appearing for two nights, March 18 & 19th, at Princeton Station in Chelmsford, MA. We’re on from 9PM to 1AM both nights. We’ve got three more gigs in early April too.
I’ll be playing bass for Rock City Band four times in the next few weeks: Saturday, Feb. 5th, at Princeton Station in Chelmsford, MA. If you live in northern Boston suburbs like Arlington or Lexington, this is about 20 minutes up Route 3. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 11th and 12th, in the lounge at the […]
After several years as the backup, I’ve just joined Rock City Band as their full time bass player — first gig is this Friday, January 7th, at Princeton Station in Chelmsford, MA, 9 PM to 1 AM. We’ll also be welcoming back the terrific Brenda White as our lead vocalist. Schedules, song lists, and other […]
NPR’s On Point recently broadcast an interview with guitar builder and world class picker Wayne Henderson. If you love guitar, do check it out. Among other things, Henderson plays a very nice version of Doc Watson’s Nothing to It. Indeed, Henderson has built instruments for Doc Watson and Eric Clapton, etc. Highly recommended.
I’ll be playing another gig with Rock City Band this Saturday, Oct. 9, at Mickee’s on the Water on Middlesex Turnpike in Billerica, MA (map). We’re playing from 9 to 12:30, and if you live near Bedford, Lexington, Arlington, etc., it’s only about 20 minutes away. Rock City plays covers of rock and pop favorites […]
Robert Cedrone and I will be appearing again this Saturday at the Starbucks (map) that’s on the north side of Lexington, MA (not the one in the center of town!) Robert and I go on at about 7:20 PM and we’ll play until a bit after 8 PM, but there are also a couple of […]
On Sept. 25th, I’ll be playing bass for Rock City Band at the Rockin’ for KPM benefit at Back to the Boathouse in Dracut, Mass. Rockin’ for KPM is held each year to celebrate and raise money for the surviving two of three triplets, Kyle, Patrick and Matthew Wilkins, all of whom were born with […]
My friends in Rock City Band will be appearing this Wed., weather permitting, at Payson Park in Belmont, MA for the Payson Park Music Festival. As far as I know, this is a local neighborhood summer music event, at a small park in Belmont. I’ll be coming by to do sound, and I’ll likely trade […]
…and, for that matter, it ends tonight too. In fact, I’ll just be sitting in on bass for just a few songs with my good friend John Landau, who is making one of his regular appearances at the Caffe Concerto restaurant in Shepherd’s Bush, in London. If you’re one of the three people in London […]
As I mentioned in the posting below, Robert Cedrone and I will be appearing again this Saturday at the Starbucks (map) that’s on the north side of Lexington, MA (not the one in the center of town!) It’s only an hour, but if you feel like stopping by for some coffee and a little music, […]
This weekend, Friday and Saturday April 2nd and 3rd, I will be playing bass with Rock City Band at two clubs north of Boston.« Previous Entries
