Welcome to my home on the internet

I live in New York City and I play, write, arrange, and produce music for myself and lots of other people. I spend quite a bit of time in Austin, Texas, and travel around the country with various groups. I've contributed performances, compositions, and arrangements to recordings by bands like Snarky Puppy, Okkervil River, Bill Laurance, Nelo, and many more. My band is Progger.

Fall shuffle

Today's temperature in Austin was probably the best in the history of weather on Earth, and all the windows are open as I sit here, producing beats for my friend Nathan Felix, playing with my new Korg R3, and updating my website.  This past week was a bit on the nutty side, with wild Nelo travels from Fayetteville, AR (George's Majestic Lounge is a great, great venue) to College Station, TX (the Hurricane Harry's show with Pat Green was great success) and back to Austin for some minor surgery (I'm fine).

The rest of 2011 is starting to shape up, with a few changes.  I was very excited about the Progress show at Momo's on 12/8 with Eli Haslanger and Eddy Hobizal, but unfortunately it's being rescheduled for January because of an unforseen conflict with the venue.  Progress will be doing a happy hour set at Momo's on 12/13 at 5:30pm, so be sure to check that out if you want some funk in your evening patio cocktail.  Who doesn't?

I'm playing with the ever-outrageous Rick White's Monster Big Band tonight at the Elephant Room, so come check it out if you're downtown!  No cover, great beer selection, loud big band.
