Ok, so, I finally got around to booking a POS gig, here, in the Cali! Never played a professional gig, as a leader, in my home country. So, I’ve decided to make this next birthday my debut! If you’re in the metro-LA area, please come out and celebrate my BIG DAY with me! I’ll be joined by talented singer Mao Shimizu, guitarist Takahito Mori, and Bassist Jeff Littleton!
Join us at 2nd St Jazz in Little Tokyo! We start at 8:30PM ONE SET FOLLOWED BY JAM SESSION!
GONNA BE A FUN TIME!
So I’ve been working with this band One Tribe Nation for a couple years and for the last year or so we’ve been kind of on hiatus while our producer Chris Baseford finishes our album in between all of his really big projects with people like Rob Zombie and Tommy Lee and other folks of that ilk! Wel the other day I get a call from bassist and One Tribe Nation band-mate Dave Filice. He says he’s playing with really cool artist named Ashley Turner and they’ve got an EP release gig coming up and find themselves in need of guess what- you guessed it- A drummer! So I get the music and start listening and REALLY dig the stuff! Interesting songs and melodies and even some interesting metric shifts. And all of that without sounding pretentious! We’re playing at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach tomorrow (WEDNESDAY) night at 10PM! Come by if you’ve been waiting to check out one of my gigs in town! =) Get full detail at my calendar link.
