March and April Gigs!

Hey folks, I'm really excited to have the chance to present my original music over the next couple of months. I had a great time playing in Hokkaido for the last three months, but now it is time to get to some original shows. First off, I'm playing in my hometown of Lewisburg West Virginia on March 29 with my old friends. We will be doing my original jazz/fusion and some rock. We are also featuring music by Delton Weikle and Shane Allen.

On April 11th, my progressive metal band IZMATIK will return to Chiba Japan to play at the live house Anga. It has been quite a while since we played the Long Live rock event and we are really looking forward to sharing the stage with some other great bands. This will be our first show with our new singer. We were strictly instrumental before but, since I write lyrics for all my songs, I decided to add a singer. I heard her sing live and I really dug her power and energy. We've been cutting demos and preparing recording in the near future.
