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 […]
One of the excuses that’s been trotted out by several commentators in defense of the New York Times paywall is that it’s “just like public radio”. Well, no. When I contribute to public radio, which I do, my contribution helps make all of that content freely available to everyone. If I “contribute” to the New […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
Robert Cedrone and I will be appearing a week from today on December 5th at 7 PM at the Starbucks (map) that’s on the north side of Lexington, MA (not the one in the center of town!) Robert plays acoustic guitar and sings a mix of covers including Van Morrison, Al Green, Southside Johnny, Roy […]
My good friend Robert Cedrone appears occasionally doing solo gigs north of Boston, and I often accompany him on bass. This Saturday, June 6, we’ll be appearing for an hour starting at 7 PM at the Starbucks (map) that’s on the north side of Lexington, MA (not the one in the center of town!) Robert […]
Early readers of this blog will remember that the original policy on comment copyrights caused some controversy. You can read about that in the posting Copyrights and Comments and especially in the interesting comment thread that followed. As promised, I took some time to think about it all, and to talk to some people whose […]
We don’t get many recordings of Rock City Band, and as the substitute bass player I only play occasionally anyway. Last month we did record of one of our club gigs, with me sitting in on a few songs. For all you fans out there, a short mp3 clip is now up on the Arcane […]
A few weeks ago the New York Times published a nice rememberance of one of my favorite American authors, Wallace Stegner. Angle of Repose is probably his most famous work, and it won the Pulitzer Prize, but many of his smaller books including Remembering Laughter and Crossing to Safety, are beautfully written too.
After this blog went live I received a few comments on the copyright policy, and in particular on the fact that copyright on any comments that you post is transferred to me.« Previous Entries
