Welcome to my first newsletter! Social Media has progressively grown murky and I've decided it's time to connect directly with you.
The next couple months will be busy on my end. I'm working with at least a dozen different bands, ensembles, and projects. Check out some of these upcoming public shows in November:
Musicians Gathering #23 (Solo) - Sunday, November 19 @ 7:00 PM at Rittenhouse Soundworks (219 West Rittenhouse Street, Philadelphia, PA). I'm debuting my own sextet featuring trumpet through electronics. We'll perform my music from previous, current, and upcoming albums. It's my brand of music consisting of jazz fused with Psychedelic Rock among other influences.
Tree-Lighting Ceremony (York Street Hustle) - Wednesday, November 22 @ 5:00 PM at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA). The York Street Hustle is providing the live soundtrack for the lighting of the PMA's tree; kicking off the holiday season. FREE
John Byrne Band: Twangmen Release Show - Saturday, November 25 @ 7:00 PM at Proscenium Theater at The Drake (302 South Hicks Street, Philadelphia, PA). John Byrne produced an album with his dad, John J. Byrne, of Irish Folk songs. We'll perform every song from the record, along with new songs we are preparing for our own eminent 2018 studio release.

Aside from November live performances, I am self releasing Sound Plan, a full length instrumental Jazz album on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. The music combines Jazz with Psychedelic Rock and Electronic Dance Music (EDM). You can preview one of the tracks titled "Afternoon" on YouTube. The release show will be on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at World Café Live (upstairs).
