Last night was the monthly Saratoga Acoustic Blues Society's open mic at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs and my fourth appearance on the stage.
Well, actually it is my 6th since I attended two other open mics since then. Caffe Lena has a weekly Thursday night open mic that is for any music style or spoken word. I went solo for one and took my wife along on another. Both performances were good and I had a great time in what felt like a more casual setting than the Acoustic Blues…Continue

This is a letter that I received from Joe Bonamassa's foundation for rallying the next generation and passing on the blues to our youth.
This was in receipt of a CBG. I will be doing additional work with these folks and of course Joe.

So I play on a worship team. I am a bass player. I so badly want to represent the CBG on stage with a CGB Bass. I am having a hard time finding a two stringed bass neck. I could go fretless but I honestly pefer frets. Anyone have a line or plans on a bass neck?

I recently had the opportunity to have a special viewing of a 19th century Cigar Box Violin made from a guy in England. The Head and Pappalardo Curator of Musical Instruments at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Darcy Kuronen gave my fiancé and I special access to this piece.
