Really grateful to Little Steven Van Zandt for mentioning myself, along with Kurt Baker, Soraia and The Connection in an interview with Forbes this month. Little Steven has been a champion of rock n’ roll for many years now, and his continued support for artists such as myself is appreciated more than he could ever know. Thanks Little Steven!
ALSO: Don’t forget, I’m coming to a town near you with The Dirty Gems THIS NOVEMBER! Just added Ralph’s Rock Diner in Worcester, MA! Check out the “Shows” tab for show details and tickets!

Happy New Year to all you rock n’ rollers out there! And everyone else too, I guess. 2016 is going to be a great year for rock n’ roll and I hope to see you all at some point before 2017!

This month I’ll be heading out west to sit in with fellow garage rock n’ rollers Soraia, at Echoplex in L.A. for the The Muff’s 25th Anniversary show!

It’s a Little Steven’s Underground Garage show, as well as being hosted by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, and a great UG DJ in his own right. I’ve got more news for this April, but first let’s get pumped for L.A.!

I’m really excite that The Connection was asked to come out to Cleveland and play at the Cleveland Auditorium for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame’s annual “It’s Only Rock n Roll” spring benefit. Here’s a bit of the press release:

Van Zandt named four of the band’s driving, hook and harmony-laden songs “The Coolest Song In The World” in a recent 13-month period, and has put two other Connection rockers into heavy rotation.

For a second time this month I’ve been really fortunate to get some national airplay, this time with Kurt Baker’s instant pop classic “She Can Do It All”. Check out this killer pop track and tune in to XM/Sirius Underground Garage with Little Steven to hear it in your car!
Earlier this year I recorded some piano parts on a song called “7 Nights to Rock” by New England’s newest hit makers, The Connection. Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Serius/XM radio picked the track as Coolest Song of the Week back in August and now it’s up against new releases from Aerosmith, The Beach Boys, Joe Walsh and more for Coolest Song in the World! Little Steven is Steven Van Zandt, guitar player in Bruce Springstein’s E Street Band. It’s an honor to have played on “7 Nights to Rock” and to have the song even considered the Coolest Song of the Week let along the world. Please check out the website and vote for The Connection, who just got back from a European tour this past October!
