Christmas Playlist

I just put together a YouTube playlist of some of my Christmas tunes.



Phantom of the Opera

Here’s a little video clip of a medley from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera being performed by the Evergreen Community Orchestra of Everett, Washington on Halloween evening!

Here is the plot summary as summarized by the all knowing Wikipedia:
Plot summary[edit]
In the 1890’s in Paris, the Palais Garnier is believed to be haunted by an entity known as the Phantom or the Opera Ghost. One day, the stagehand, Joseph Buquet, is found hanged, presumably by the Phantom, after boasting about him to the corps de ballet. At the same time, Christine Daaé, a young Swedish soprano, has been tutored […] Continue Reading…


Christmas Playlist

Hi world!  Happy November!!  Here is my Spotify Christmas playlist.  Have a very merry holiday shopping season!


Next Concert

Hey there…..If you are in the Seattle area on Halloween be sure to come out to the Everett Mall for lots of fun and music by Evergreen Community Orchestra.  I’ll be playing bass.








The kids will be there doing in-mall trick or treating and from 5:30 to 6:30 an ensemble from the Evergreen Community Orchestra will be performing some fun and/or spooky music under the rotunda in the mall’s center court.  Following that the orchestra will perform a complete concert in Northwest Music Hall, located in the northeast (how ironic) corner of the mall.  Best yet, it’s all free.  Donations […] Continue Reading…


DB-18 Introducing the Roland Micro Cube Bass Amp!

This is lesson DB-18 Introducing the Roland Micro Cube Bass Amp, and is a continuation of my journal of things I have learned as an adult double bass student.  See the video for a few pointers about using the Roland amp.
Watch The Video Lesson

My main bass amp is a Gallien-Krueger 700RB-II in a 12 inch Neo combo cabinet, along with another Neo 12 extension cab, which is an awesome amp that has served me well.  But, even with the Neo speakers, it is still heavy!  Recently I began searching for something smaller and lighter that could still put out a great […] Continue Reading…


White Christmas Video

I just published today my video to go along with my arrangement and recording of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” played in the awesome style of the vocal group The Drifters.  This is a ukulele and string bass duet on White Christmas while thinking of all of our men and women in uniform serving America so far away from home.

A link to the video on YouTube is below.


Blackies and Nacho Mama

Hey there Mexican food lovers.  I thought I’d let you know that my song “Nacho Mama” has just now been released as a single on CD Baby.  For today only, the lunch special is Nacho Mama for only $0.99!

The inspiration for this song came from the cooking magazine, “Bon Appetite”, which had an article titled “One Dish Wonder” and at first I thought that might make a good song title, but then that led me to think, “What ONE menu item do I think about a lot?”. It was then that I realized that that one dish has to […] Continue Reading…


White Christmas

My new version of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is now available on CD Baby, plus various outlets of digital distribution such as iTunes, Amazon, etc. and is streaming on Spotify.  And, it’s best for me if you buy it directly at my music store.  White Christmas is yet another tune that I got inspired to record last December when the music bug hit me hard.  I’ve always loved the version done by The Drifters after I heard a clip of it on Home Alone when Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) realized his family woke up late and rushed off to […] Continue Reading…


New Artwork

I will be releasing my next recording this week….my instrumental cover of The Drifters version of White Christmas.  Here’s the cover art!  Check back tomorrow for more.
