Upcoming gig event at the TEAMSTERS LOCAL 399 2ND ANNUAL CLASSIC CAR SHOW

"The Crew" and I are pumped for being invited to play in the Teamsters Local 399 Classic Car Show event coming up this August 6th. I've played a little music before but this will definitely be my biggest gig on alto saxophone to date! Let's rock.

We'll get to play alongside local bands Desert Dragons, a progressive rock and melodic metal band from Los Angeles and South Pasadena Transit Authority, a group inspired by the sounds of the band Chicago. 

Here's the event on their website: http://www.ht399.org/event/teamsters-local-399-the-basic-crafts-2nd-annual-classic-car-show/

August 6th 12pm - 5pm

 
 

Last night's rehearsal at Summit Studios in Pasadena

I've been screwin' around on the saxophone playing with a local crew here in Pasadena the past several months to help myself learn more about the stage, performing and the like. We're doing a little gig coming up for the 4th of July like a backyard bash style. It should be pretty awesome. We've got a rockabilly sound playing the classics. The camera wasn't very good quality but you get the idea. 

AIGA's Sit&Tell in the Toledo news.

Recently, the Toledo Blade, Toledo's area newspaper put out an article on AIGA's newest exhibition going on throughout the summer. There are many chairs and below is the list of artists at the specific location where my piece is showing. I'm honored to be showing my chair amongst all of these amazing artists. Thank you to AIGA Toledo and the judges for accepting me into this show.

My work to be shown in AIGA Toledo's newest gallery exhibit, Sit&Tell, Tomorrow!

I was accepted to take part in AIGA Toledo's newest gallery exhibit, Sit&Tell, back in March and the work is going on display at my alma mater, Bowling Green State University in the Wolfe Center for the Arts lobby! 

Exciting news and here is another sneak peek of my piece that was accepted. The cool thing is, the entries were designed specifically for, and will be, displayed on actual chairs! The exhibit opens tomorrow, Tuesday the 14th at 7 p.m EST! If you're in that neck of the woods, go check it out. 

You can follow the Instagram account as they introduce different chairs each day, starting tomorrow, and the show will continue on a rolling exhibition through the Greater Toledo area at the locations listed on the Sit&Tell website and shown below. Follow the news on Facebook as well.
