Sunny’s with the PiPowerTrio!

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. sunnysposter_03_pipowertrio_tlg-update

Rocko’s Modern Life!

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.

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!
