I've missed you all,

It’s been a while since we've had a chance to catch up, but the newsletters are back!



For the past 6 years I have been spending a lot of time in Guadalajara, the 2nd biggest metro area in Mexico. Most of that time I was caring for my father and of course the pandemic happened, so it is only now that I am finally connecting with the amazing, creative, friendly and accepting, and very open-minded music community in Guadalajara. 


Start a jazz big band and also use your classical and jazz chops to perform with a DJ? No problem in Guadalajara! Arturo de la Torre is making it look easy.  I am so looking forward to getting back down here in the fall to really dig into some creative collaborations with the musicians in this treasure-of-a music-scene!


Going forward I want to highlight some of the talented, awesome people and projects in Guadalajara. I will start today with this superb, young music agency with whom I am now working: PM Music. They are handling some of my booking tasks for the US, my social media, some copywriting, connecting me with production resources in Mexico, and much more.  A big thank you to my dude Jonathan, Mina, the other members of the PM Music team, and, especially, their fearless leader Paulina!


Below are the public shows that we have scheduled so far, but keep in mind that more are added all the time. I’ll let you know via social media of new shows as we confirm them!

I’ve been performing for some of these venues for a long time and every one of them is important to me. I’ll elaborate on many of them on my social media (follow me there, links at the top!). 


Hope to steel-drum party with you all at least once this year!



Have an upcoming family gathering, party, wedding, anniversary, birthday…? Get the BEST musical entertainment for you, your friends and your loved ones!! 


Planning a public kids or family concert, PTA fundraiser or end-of-year party, or the public grand opening of a business?  let’s get your date locked in for summer 2023!

That’s all for today. Hope to make some music with you soon!


Keep dancin’
