I still really can't believe it. Thanks to your support, I was voted the Trop Rock Music Association's Entertainer of the Year for 2016. This is such a high honor because the very bedrock of Trop Rock music is live performance and entertainment. Thank you for your support. I hope you will continue to be active the TRMA and vote again next year for your favorite performers in every category. 














When I returned home from Key West, I also learned that I was voted Best Acoustic Artist in my hometown awards, the Temecula Valley Music Awards. That's a pretty good week.

I have finally gotten around to updating the Island Store. It is fully stocked with the cool new design t-shirts, koozies, and Entertainer of the Year commemorative 3" buttons. Time to go shopping.

Happy December - last updated 12/3/16

I am busy adding new shows and working on a new album. Make sure you subscribe to the email list to get updates. Facebook limits the reach of messages, so you may miss things just following there.


The new album is called "Reinventing the Wheel." It will include "I'm with the Band" and "Bearable Hours" that many of you heard in Key West. Each Monday morning, I will be publishing the "story behind the song" for one track on the album. It will be published here on the website and on my FB music page.


I'll be adding new shows to the Tour Dates page as they come in. Check back there often.


For those who missed Fools on Stools in Key West, it was such a huge success that we are trying to put it together again in 2017. For those who WERE there...how about that show, huh?
