My silly little music.

I can't breathe without music, so it was only natural that I began writing and performing my own songs starting about ten years ago. I have a backing band and, whenever we play live, we rely heavily upon improvisation and playing in the moment. In the studio, it's much harder. I'd love it if some of you checked out some of my music. I was influenced very heavily by Motown when I was a child, so that comes out in my vocals. The music itself is basically acoustic based folk-rock.

The Ultrasonic Project

Hey now! Check out our Chicago band called The Ultrasonic Project! Kind of funky like New Orleans, kind of jazzy like MMW, kind of rock like The GD! We are an instrumental 5-piece of guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, and DJ. Check us out, be our friend! We are inches away from releasing our new 2008 demo CD. Hope you like it

Jamming in the South

My band is called the Red Eyed Rum Runners . . . it forms spontaneously at my Dad's gigs when they take a break and I get together with his crew and jam a couple of numbers. It's fun playing in the Bible Belt and the people are nice.

It's no fun bein' an illegal aliuuuun.

rule of thumb

we gave it a good run from 1992-2002.. four albums, many shows, a hell of a lot of fun. we were even featured on KFOG's local anesthetic program as up and comers at one point. and then reality set in with jobs, kids, etc.

if you like what you hear, our last two albums ('wow and flutter' and 'fade to buzz' are available on iTunes, rhapsody, eMusic, etc.)

thanks for listening!

Hi Everybody,

I'm new posting here, but I'll take a shot at it. Anyways, on Friday, February 15, 2008 there is going to be a charity concert for children in Nepal at 7pm at Fremont Junior High in Mesa, Arizona (see below for address). All proceeds go directly to a NGO in Nepal. They spend so little on anything but the children that they don't even have a website. My band, Bobby McGee and the Hippies (assuming that Bobby doesn't get pneumonia before the concert), will be playing Let it Be (Beatles)(I'm sorry it's not a Grateful Dead song, but we really liked let it be, or at least our Republican drummer did). We'd really appreciate any of you who are going to be in Mesa, Arizona to come down and support us, since it is for a good cause. Thanks.

Here is the address:
Fremont Junior High
1001 N. Power Road
Mesa, Arizona 85205

Hi i have a few new tunes

Hi i have a few new tunes and remixes of the older ones on my page now.

The tunes are all tributes to the Dead except for On the Road which is more of a breeze through the beat scene etc (brief and not in depth but I think catchy) and Memphis Hideaway is more inspired by the Dead scene that a tribute to the band.

I hope you enjoy them.

Merry Christmas all!
