Open Mic and Live Music

It's been a great fall, we've been playing lots of music.  Mike and I are going to be playing some Saturday Morning gigs at Janey's 6602 E Cave Creek Rd Cave Creek, AZ.

Our open Mic at The Hideaway is really turning into musician venue.  Each week we see more great players coming out to jam.  And a new thing is happening, we are seeing these players get together and work on new projects.
This is one such project, "The Hemptones," we are doing four part harmonies… great fun!  These guys are all working musicians with their own gigs but when we get together... wow!

The guys that I've played with for several years, Mike Assad and Kevin Brennan under the name The Rennesance Rednecks, along with new addition Jack Horan on bass, are doing weekend gigs, where we invite local talent to play on our breaks. Above we are with 12 year old Madison Holmes, who is making quite a name for herself around the north valley.
Mike and I are also working on a rock project, "Rooster," with my old highschool friends Steve Purcell on Drums and monster lead guitar player Scott "The Pin" Maish!  These three guys and I have been playing together on and off for four decades.  I love this band!
