Time for my first gig at The Chatterbox in Long Grove! Join me on Saturday, August 31, and I’ll sing you through the evening while you enjoy a craft beer, a hand-crafted cocktail, and maybe something from the menu. Truffle fries and prime rib sliders sound great to me!

Hey, Crystal Lake - join me downtown at “The Tap” on Williams Street! I’ll be rocking a night-owl gig on Friday, August 9 at 10 pm, and I can’t wait. I’ll be singing some classic rock, and adding my own touches. I think this will be a good one for a bit of electric guitar! See you there.

Live music is BACK on Virginia Street in Crystal Lake!
THIS THURSDAY, I’m bringing free, live music to 815 Chop House! (https://www.facebook.com/815chophouse/) It’s one of the newest restaurants in town, and I’m performing on their patio on August 1st from 5 to 8 to welcome their crowd. They’ve re-opened at the site of the former M Supper Club, and I’m looking forward to a great meal after my gig! I used to play just down the street at Jaster’s, which is closed as of writing (perhaps there’s hope?), so I can’t wait to rock the neighborhood again. If there’s a good crowd, I’ve been known to play a little extra… So bring your friends for dinner and free, live music!

Time for my first show at the neighborhood pub! Live music at Hermann’s? Yep! They got the ball rolling this summer, and I’m ready to give it a shove on Saturday, June 29.

See you there to find out!
