Grammy Awards 2020

What an honor to play for the Lunar New Year and all my Vietnamese friends in Rockaway, NJ on Sunday January 29th!  The highlight was playing the song Come Together by the Beatles which went for more than 7:30 with the crowd singing along!

Thank you fans! 

2016 was such a busy year thanks to all the fan support and the amazing JP Band - Craig Bleifer on drums, Richard Giancamilli on Sax and vocals, and Gary Evans on bass and vocals!  I was able to complete a 21 show mini-tour across New York, Pennsylvania, and NJ playing at historic venues such as The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, The Bitter End in NYC, and Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ.  I began writing the next EP and had the chance to play some of the new songs live including More Friends In Heaven Than…
