After a busy and exciting July including an incredibly fun Birthday blow-out at Radegast, August is filled with great music here in NYC and New Jersey! I'm proud to say my bands will be playing in five of the six boroughs! Ok, perhaps it's four boroughs and New Brunswick, NJ... Still, I'm very happy to be playing all around the area and hope to see many of you this month.
