Welcome

Hi and thanks for visiting my site!  A Bay Area musician, I compose and perform covers in a range of styles including rock and contemporary pop, jazz, show tunes and new age instrumental.  You can read more about my inspirations in my bio.  I compose for film and tv as well as for life events (e.g. weddings, memorials, life celebrations).  I play for parties, including recent artist "tributes", and lead sing-alongs, too. And I love collaborations, you'll see recent shows with Denise Fraga here.

Come hear me!  I play every Thursday night at Reed & Greenough, a piano lounge in San Francisco's Marina District, 3251 Scott Street (btwn Divisadero & Chestnut).  I play other public venues and will post them here or on my blog.  Most of my "gigs" are private parties, events, weddings.

Time for the Reed & Greenough Thursday night gig: 8:30-11:30pm.  And a double-shift 2nd Thurs each month, 5:30-11:30pm

Feel free to get in touch, whether to propose a gig or just to say "hey."  And  check out my music and videos.

Most of all, thanks for your support, and enjoy!

At the Piano Bar 

I've been playing a lot at Reed & Greenough, a piano bar in San Francisco.  It's been a great experience, a good fit for what I do -- playing lots of songs and taking requests -- and it has forced me to expand my repertoire.  The owner wanted a lot of upbeat hard rock, so I've added songs from The Rolling Stones to Tom Petty, Nirvana and Oasis to Twenty One Pilots and Red Hot Chili Peppers.  Of course, I fit in my favs, including Tiny Dancer by Elton John, Brown-Eyed Girl and older Springsteen.  Playing most Thursday nights.

Outdoor and Indoor concerts 

A lot of concerts and events this year, including a beautiful outdoor concert in Los Altos Hills in May.  Performed with the trio in the photo:  Sujata Subramanian, Arthur Williams and I.   Another highlight was the Unity in Diversity concert at TheLaundry SF, a cool new venue in the Mission dedicated to fostering creativity and collaboration.  Delighted to play with Sujata and with Madhabika Nayak, Khalil Michael Dalal, Alex De Luca and Angel Lopez. 

House Concert in Tiburon 

This post long overdue... In November I performed in a house concert in Tiburon, with views of the Bay and of San Francisco (thanks Anj!).  It was a wonderful time -- thank you to those who attended and supported.  About 45 folks gathered to hear me play original compositions plus a few covers and "interpretations."  Hannah De Los Santos joined me on "Creases."  We then socialized and had a sing-along.  I'll post photos and video, am running a bit behind.  But a meaningful experience, and one which has led to several other gigs.
