Canadian Music Week! What a blast!


Wow - we had such a great time at Canadian Music Week 2016!

Thank you to Ryan, Patrick, and everyone at Nocturne - and of course the awesome bands.  We had such fun chatting in the green room (Dan from Glass Apple Bonzai, Tom, Jaimie, and Alia from Mangled Meat) and seeing incredible performances (Hologramme!  We love you!).

This just in: adding a [Video] page so you can see some snippets from our performances.
Check it out.

Prep for Fifty Shades of FUsion


Wow, what excitement.

I'll be playing music at MeZnoTik's "Fifty Shades of Fusion" in a few weeks.  I can never leave well enough alone, so I've been remixing my tracks for the show.  The after party will be at the bar downstairs of the hall in Bay City, MI on 25 January.


New Site!


So here I am creating yet another website focusing on my music.  As of January 2014, I will have been taking classes/working/teaching/performing in the field of Middle Eastern and related Dances for 20 years. Wow!

Some of my fans & friends are aware of this, but not everyone: dance was something that took off when I was making other plans.
