Beck’s Song Reader at the Somerville Theatre

On February 28th, Brendan Burns is once again bringing together a collective of incredibly talented musicians and performers at the Somerville Theatre to bring Beck’s upcoming Song Reader “album” (which is only being released in sheet music form) to life.

Our version of ‘Old Shanghai’ was arranged by Brendan, with:

Vocals – Mary Bichner
Guitar – Brendan Burns
Bass – Tony Leva
Trumpet – (yours truly)
Tenor Sax – Brendan Higgins
Trombone – Randy Pingrey
Baritone Sax – Kathy Olson

95 Columbia Fundraisers

Many friends and fellow musicians lived in Columbia House, which suffered a devastating fire last week. There are two benefits coming up which I’ll be performing in – the one above is on the 9th at Precinct in Union Square, and I’ll be getting all horn-y with Johnny Blazes and the Pretty Boys.

The week after on Thursday (the 13th of September) I’ll be playing with Brendan himself at the Middle East Downstairs. Please come out to both shows if you can, they promise to be wonderful!
