Stone Arch Festival and More….

I have been waiting for years to return to the Stone Arch Festival! No kidding. My old band The Camdens played this festival 2 or 3 years in a row way back when this was just a little baby festival. It has grown to become not only one of the better art festivals in the City but a tradition for many families including mine for Father’s Day weekend.
I sang there two Summers ago with The Mad Ripple and am thrilled to be returning with my very own band.
We haven’t had a lot of full band shows so this will be a fun chance to rock out with the rhythm section.

Show time: Saturday, June 15th 3:15 pm
City Pages Stage under the Central Avenue Bridge
Full schedule at

We’ll be nicely warmed up too as we have a gig at Manitou Station in White Bear Lake the night before.
This is the kick off to the annual Manitou Days.

There will be a parade at 6pm and all kinds of fun events happening. We play 9pm-Midnight. So don’t miss your chance to see and hear us play more songs in one night than ever!!!

Summertime in MN, The sun will shine soon!

The Driftwood Char Bar…

Hello again. This is a busy month. Just the right way to kick off a new year.

First of all the band will be playing at the Driftwood Char Bar in S. Minneapolis this coming Saturday, Jan 12th. Music starts at 9pm, we play around 10pm.

A funny story about that venue is that it was the first place I ever played a solo show. I was singing backup with The Mad Ripple’ that night and was asked to open. I was hesitant and not at all sure I was up to the task but decided to just go for it! I played for maybe 25 minutes and felt myself shaking throughout but I did it and it was a huge leap for me at the time. No-one booed me off the stage and I didn’t break anything : )

How sweet now then to be returning with my very own band.

Ever since I picked up the ukulele I have tried to live by the motto “Do one thing everyday that scares you”
