First Official Show in the US!

Sunday Feb. 5th, I had the immense privilege of playing my first (official) show in the US. I had played in the US in the past (2012 @ George Mason University, 2013 @ Eastman School of Music), but these were with wind bands & orchestras where I added my small grain of salt playing the alto saxophone – so it doesn’t really count!

I was joined by my two pals and INCREDIBLY talented musicians – Bobby Mahoney and Jake Thistle – to play a songwriter-circle-style show at Danny Clinch’s Transparent Gallery in Asbury Park, New Jersey. A dream come true for me: my greatest musical heroes hail from Asbury Park, and playing at such a prestigious place surrounded by so many familiar (and not so familiar) faces filled me with joy.

I am so grateful for this opportunity, and want to express my profound thanks to Jake & Bobby for joining me, as well as Zack & Tina for organizing the show.

Check out a pro-shot video of the performance, the full performance livestream, and some pictures down below!

All $1200 made from the show were donated to Mike Campbell (from Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers)’s Tazzy Fund (thanks Mike for the Facebook shoutout!).
