Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

First, I would like to apologize for my 5 year absence.

My wife's medical conditions have become serious and life-threatening and I have taken a hiatus to care for her health. I do not get out much so I have been working on things indoors and have started to try some new projects (outside of music). I have  become pretty active in Ham Radio (W2GWI Call Sign) and I am getting back into programming and electronics in what little spare time that I have.

But, enough…

Performance Updates 

This year has been very rough on myself and my wife health wise. My wife Sherry is still dealing with a Life-Threatening Medical Condition which has been back and forth and I had a Hernia Surgery in July which was at least two years overdue.

The first half of the year I was out performing at Open Mics and at various special events but now I have to take some time off to focus on our health (especially Sherry's).

While taking this time off, I am working on self-teaching piano, drums and maybe a few other…

What have I been up to? 

Hi Everybody!

I'm sorry for not blogging in a while but so much has been going on.

First the bad news. My wife has been dealing (for years now) with a Life-Threatening Medical Condition and so I have had to focus much of my attention on her and many doctors appointments. I did write a song for her though (Standing Next To Me) and it has been a hit so far. My health has remained good and I hope that that remains the same with all I have been through.

I am hoping that 2015 will be my breakout year. I have…

Music Events and Music Updates 

Hi Everyone,

  The event at Espresso Joe's (Al-Vis and Friends - Featured Performer) was a huge success. I had a great time performing for everyone (about 50 in attendance coming and going) and I was able to see some good friends play too. Tommy Fuller was a surprise guest of Kevin J. Allen's and I haven't seen him play in a very long time.

  I was informed that I am invited to perform again at VETStock on August 2, 2014 (Saturday) from 12 - 9pm.

  I wrote three (3) NEW songs, one of which is for my wife…

Upcoming And Past Events 

WOW! A lot has been happening!

I just finished a volunteer performance for MOAM (Musicians On A Mission) at Sessions at CVR (Center For Vocational Rehabilitation) and it was an experience I will never forget and one that I will repeat very soon. Everyone was very receptive and I had a blast performing for them.

I have participated in some Open Mics around New Jersey but the one I have found to like the most is the Papa Ganache Open Mic Series (Poetry Workshop and Open Mic at a Vegan Bakery in Matawan, NJ)…

New Year / New Events / New Music Yet To Come 


So far this year I have survived a 2 week long cold (not flu) that was given to me at a Christmas music event and I started suffering on Christmas day. I have since recovered but it two more weeks for me to get my voice back just in time for some music events I was a part of. The first event was on January 17th (Light Of Day Open Mic) which was very important to me because it is a benefit for Parkinson's Disease research which is what my father passed away from. Then coming up on…
