I’m looking forward to continuing my series of duets for trombone and guitar with J. Walter Hawkes at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, NY. This is one of the great New York City spots.
This is like time traveling. I’m back inside Rocko’s Modern Life and thrilled to be working on the new Nickelodeon movie that’s in the works.
This recording of “In Another Time” is for Guitar and Piano. Brian Cavanagh-Strong plays piano and the recording is by Patrick Derivaz.
Music and Light. I’m looking forward to performing with J. Walter Hawkes at the Plaxall Gallery on May 18th as part of the 7th edition of the LIC Arts Open. Kenny Greenberg will be adding his amazing neon.
I recently recorded Radiate with Brian Cavanagh-Strong on piano. This piece was originally composed as a soundtrack for a short film about the Electromagnetic Spectrum. It’s time.
I’m thrilled to be performing at Sunny’s, in Red Hook, the first Friday of the month (Oct 7, Nov 4, Dec 2) with Sasha Dobson on drums and Daria Grace on bass. Both add dreamy vocals. I’m on guitar and electronics. This is my kind of power trio.
I’m absolutely thrilled that Rocko’s Modern Life is back for a one hour special on Nickelodeon. There’s nothing like a live band on a soundtrack and this one was as good as it gets. I’ll keep you posted.
I can’t tell you how much the music of Suicide has meant to me over the years. For me, they were the sound of CBGB’s. I had never heard anything like it before, and nothing since. I’m looking forward to performing my new piece, Go (For Alan Vega) at the LIC Bar in Long Island City on Sunday, August 28, for the first time. It’s the last Sunday of the summer. We’ve had a great run. Thanks to all of the great musicians who came to play, Sasha Dobson, Daria Grace, J. Walter Hawkes, Tom Beckham, and Brian Cavanagh Strong. And all of the Pre-Ponies who did their thing with Daria and Sasha’s Band, with Jason Mills on drums, Daria Grace on bass, and Grandpa’s drum machine.
Nickelodeon has announced that there will a new Rocko’s Modern Life movie.
The music for Rocko’s Modern Life was about as much fun as I’ve ever had composing and performing music for cartoons and t.v. The band was ALIVE! Kevin Norton (drums and percussion) Dave Hofstra (bass & tuba) Art Baron (trombone) Rob DeBellis (woodwinds) and I got to play a lot of guitar and organ. We also had help from Curtis Fowlkes (trombone) Steve Swell (trombone) Jim Leff (trombone) Rachelle Garniez (accordion) Laura Seaton (violin) Dave Douglas (trumpet) and Tony Trischka (banjo). More!
