I am performing every Thursday night at​​  Carnaval Brazilian Grill  6:30 to 9:30pm 

​                                      Thursday is ladies night​ !!!!

I recently did some studio work at Cathouse Studios in Sioux Falls SD luthier Josh Rieck was kind enough to loan me this awesome little parlor guitar that he built. It really sounded great and was a joy to play !!!!

If you have not been to Carnaval you really need to check it out. It is an awesome dining experience !!

Hanging out with Clive Carroll    What a treat !! 

Clive did a show in Watertown SD this summer at the Goss Opera House and was kind enough to play some tunes with me the following day. Clive is an incredible player, a great composer and a really good guy ! Clive is based out of London England and has toured a few times with Tommy Emmanuel !!

A very special thanks to my good friend Rick Stoopes at Sunset Strip Pawn in Sioux Falls for hooking me up with this pristine vintage 1980's Roland TR-505 Rhythm Composer.

I had one of these when they were all the rage around 1986 used it constantly used it until the Roland R-8 became available. I always regretted selling my TR-505.

I love this little drum machine !!!  Old School 12 bit samples, Kick drum just thumps like crazy. What a blast from the past !!
