AJ's Ale House 8/30/14

New Braunfels, Texas was crazy this evening! When I arrived at AJ's, the party had already started. The place was about 75% full, with requests laying on the piano before we hit our first note. Chris Wallis helped me out by playing his heart out on the drums, and the crowd was really into everything, and I do mean everything, I threw at them. They sang every word of "Summer Lovin'", belted out the choruses of "Enter Sandman", and danced like maniacs to "The Chicken Dance". A very energetic crowd left me exhausted!

Angry Elephant 8/29/14

Mikey Gammon and I performed in San Antonio tonight. We had an interesting crowd. They jumped between wanting dance tunes to lots of ballads. It felt like I played every Billy Joel / Elton John song I knew! Mikey's always fun to play with, and I hope his new catch phase catches on...although I can't seem to remember it.

AJ's Ale House 8/28/14

The crowd in New Braunfels tonight was great! We had fun with random tunes I didn't know. They helped me sing at least six different songs I had never tried, one of which I'd never heard. Plus, I had many great Motown and Beatles tunes. Good times, good times!

Muddle 8/23/14

Muddle in Waco, TX was the place to be tonight, that is, if you wanted to see the show Chris Wallis and I performed, because, you know, that's where we were. The crew at Muddle is great, and when we pointed out their sign didn't mention a drummer, (it just said "Piano Man"), they quickly ran outside and changed it to include "1 Drummer"! The crowd was diverse and eclectic in their requests, and we had so many requests, we played an extra hour. Chris sounded great, and I enjoyed performing with him!

AJ's Ale House 8/22/14

It was on like Donkey Kong tonight in New Braunfels! Roger Glenn laid down the groove while I shuffled through the requests from on top of my piano. I was glad the crowd was in a good mood, because it makes the night fly by. We celebrated a few birthdays, hung out with some friends after the show, and generally had a good time. Thanks for another good one, AJ's!

AJ's Ale House 8/16/14

Mikey Gammon and I performed in New Braunfels tonight to a packed house. Girls celebrating birthdays could be found in every corner of the room. Restless bodies wiggled in their chairs to the funky beats Mikey laid down. Random songs fell out of my fingers and mouth. What can I say? I had fun!

Taxi's Piano Bar 8/15/14

Singing and dancing and general fun-having took place in my favorite basement bar in San Marcos tonight! Chris Wallis joined me to help entertain the masses, and man, were the masses ready to get freaky. I was just happy that I knew the vast majority of the random tunes being brought to the stage. Taxi even showed up to sit in for a couple tunes on the drums, and all-in-all, it was a great night!

AJ's Ale House 8/14/14

All the people in New Braunfels were out for some fun for my Thursday night show at AJ's! I had lots of people singing and requesting tunes. By the end of the night a self-proclaimed "4th Tinder Date" couple were doing interpretive dances to "Piano Man" so feverishly, my face began to hurt from laughing.

Jessie celebrated her 40th birthday tonight in Houston, TX, and she had Howl At The Moon supply the music, so Adrian Lopez and I performed a dueling show, with Chris Wallis on drums. It was a great party with a fun group!

Angry Elephant 8/8/14

Mikey Gammon joined me in San Antonio to perform an all-request piano show tonight! We had some great requests throughout the evening, and by the end of the night, everyone was singing along with us. My favorite part of the evening was listening to Mikey sing "Purple Rain", as requested by the audience. Nailed it!

What a huge, fun crowd who came out to see my show tonight in New Braunfels, TX! I had lots and lots and lots of requests, most of them a little outside the norm, and I enjoyed trying them all for the good people. A few birthdays rounded out the evening, and fun was had by all!

AJ's Ale House 8/2/14

In the middle of the show Chris Wallis and I were performing in New Braunfels, the firefighters came in with their pipes and drums to play a couple of tunes for our packed house. We probably were breaking some fire codes, but all the firemen were in kilts, so no enforcement was made. I had a blast playing the show with the great Chris Wallis, and I look forward to our next gig together!

We even had some friends show up from New Braunfels to support us! Thanks goes out to everyone who danced and had a good time with us.

AJ's Ale House 7/31/14

Not too many people were out in New Braunfels this evening, but those who were had a good time with me at AJ's! I was able to try some tunes for the folks as they bonded with each other, singing and laughing with me. Always a party at AJ's!
