play ball – and music!

Spring is here, time to play ball – and music!

Peter Sheppard and I will return to the Talking Stick at 7pm on Saturday April 16th, performing at  Cafe Night, a free community outreach event presented by our friends at Venice Santa Monica Free Methodist Church. Our friend Mike V will open the show at 6pm, and West of Lincoln (a rockin’ great band playing 60’s and 70’s rock and blues covers) follows us at 8pm.

We’ll be adding some new songs to the mix, so we hope you can come out and enjoy an entire evening of music, food, and good friends.

BTW, you can see a couple videos of Pete and I from our November show here.

The Talking Stick is located at 1411 Lincoln Blvd in Venice, CA.

It’s nestled in the back corner of a mini-mall next to an El Pollo Loco, at the corner of Lincoln and California. There’s plenty of free parking behind the building.


Hope to see you!



After All These Years, Video Evidence!

Peter Sheppard and I had a great time at The Spot last Friday night. It’s a very intimate room, and we were very appreciative that so many friends came out to hear us dust off these songs after a 15 year hiatus.  We played two sets: first, we performed all of the songs from the Confidential Reasons CD. After that, we broke out some favorites from our time together in the Last American Heroes.

Here are some videos Pete’s wife Crystal captured on her iPhone:

All That Matters (a Last American Heroes staple):

Forever Young

Last November, I went into the studio with Pete Sheppard, my good friend and bandmate from our Last American Heroes days. He had asked me to sing on his version of Dylan’s Forever Young for a video project he was putting together.

With the recent loss of a dear friend, seeing this completed video reminded me how fleeting our youth really is, although in some ways we always want to stay Forever Young:
