There is something happening here!

Thanks to all of those who participated in the benefit for Neil concert. It was a huge success. I think we all got a lot more out of it than just raising money for one person. The feedback has been so positive. It is the desire of many of the folks that were there to get the Tokyo music community together more often whether it be for charity or doing showcases of our original material or both. We are in talks now and trying to set up something in April or May. More on that later!

In other news...
My group will be playing in Toranomon at Le Petit Tonneau this Saturday from 7pm. We will be doing mostly original material. The group features Daisuke Kuroda on guitar, 松崎陽平 on keys, and Mike Marrington, on drums. Le Petit Tonneau serves up authentic French food and wines. Hope to see you there! No cover!

This Sunday February 16 I will be hosting a benefit concert and jam session for my good friend Neil Stalnaker from 11am to 3:30pm. Neil is a three time survivor of throat cancer and is unable to play his horn which is how he makes a living. My hope is that many musicians and music fans will come out for this good cause. We have a really diverse line up of musicians playing that day. Hope to see you there! If you can not make the show but still would like to help out you can buy Neil's music here. Or make a straight donation via paypal to neilstalnaker007@hotmail.com.
