Hi Everyone…

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to Johnny D’s for the CD Release Party…it was an incredible night and a great way to PROPERLY launch a CD!

Most of all, thanks to the fans, friends, and family who made it a special night. There was such a great vibe in that room coming from the crowd….it made it so easy for us to get up there and relax and play music. Hope you all had fun. I did! My good friend (from 5th grade…) Adam Olenn took some great pictures. Check them out at the link below:

Also, thanks to Dana and Sean at Johnny D’s, Jennifer Truesdale and her crew of Alexis and Billy, the guys in the band for playing their usual tight show, and Tim Bradshaw, the producer of the record, for dropping in on a last-minute break from his tour with David Gray to play some songs with us!

As many of you know, we’ve been holding raffles for Red Sox tickets at some of our shows and we’re thrilled to say that in just a few weeks we’ve already raised over $1,000 for The Jimmy Fund. That’s awesome and thanks to everyone who’s participated! Raffles will be continuing at the Wednesday night shows at Paddy O’s (that rhymes) so come on down and get your tickets (that doesn’t rhyme).


A few months ago I was thrilled to find out that I was chosen out of 920 artists to be one of 21 bands included on the Boston Rockers for Life compilation CD, which is for the prevention of drunk driving. These discs are available at all Newbury Comics locations, as well as at our shows, and the proceeds go towards the charity.

In addition, they are having a HUGE, and I mean huge, 21 band show at the famed Middle East in Cambridge MA this Sunday 8/13. We are excited to be participating as we’ll be playing a short 20-minute set at about 5:30pm. Sure we won’t be playing a lot of songs, but a whole bunch of other great bands with be playing as well and it’ll be for a great cause. The day starts at 2pm so come on down whenever. See us play a bit and, even better, hang out with us! Details below…


Speaking of needing a vacation (was I???), who wants to go to Martha’s Vineyard??? (I know a couple of people who definitely want to….but I digress.) Vineyard radio station WMVY has released its new “Fresh Produce vol. 2” CD Sampler which includes “Lying and Stealing.” These discs are available for free at select locations and also at some of our shows, while supplies last. WMVY is playing tracks from the disc on the air, so call or email them with a request for “Lying and Stealing.” They’ve recently increased the signal so it can be heard in much further out now in parts of MA and RI on 92.7. I was actually on the Vineyard recently and stopped in to say hello. Barbara Dacey and everyone there was extremely nice and even had me on the air for a short interview. The link to the sampler is below.


I just wanted to feature a couple of podcasts that have done special shows focused around the CD Release Party and such…

Don at The Big Break at has an excellent extensive interview show with about 40 minutes of music and questions. Click below, then on the “Big Break” icon and scroll down to show #21.

RDM from RightishBrain podcast has done a great post-CD Release Party wrap-up show. Click the link and scroll to the “Post Concert Rock Block” show.


Songs are now available for individual sale at Check out the link below to buy:


And finally, for anyone who’s interested in a little social outing…I’ll be heading out to see singer/songwriter Greg Johnson Friday night at the Paradise Lounge. Greg recently put out a great new record called Here Comes the Caviar (you’ve probably heard the song “Save Yourself” all over AAA radio) and is playing in town this week. I think tickets are only 8 bucks if you get them at this link:

Told ya there was a lot of stuff! Thanks for reading down this far and thanks to all the new people who’ve signed up over the last couple of weeks. I really appreciate the support…..I promise to keep it interesting!
