April Shows. April on the Road...

I am excited to be playing a number of out of town shows this April. Going out with the new trio, Sunshine Soldier (Henkel/Carlson/Stardrum); Swirm (Grollman/Amat); and Will McEvoy's Mutasm (sextet, which is always a blast). Plus a few NYC shows, including a performance with Vinny Golia's Medium Ensemble at The Stone on April 6th. I grew up in Southern California and went to countless Vinny shows as a teenager. He was big influence early on so I'm stoked to be playing his music.
