Tuesday Gig @ Ritz-Carlton in DC

This Tuesday @ 6PM I’ll be performing at The Georgetown Professionals Happy Hour held at the Ritz-Carlton Urban Gardens in Washington, DC. This group does a monthly event and previously I performed at a venue where they were also meeting.  I got to meet one of their organizers after my performance and was asked to

First Friday Busking

We heard the street crowds are really good in Fredericksburg, VA during First Fridays.  So we got a babysitter and headed out to the streets not knowing what to expect. I’ve played on the streets of Waikiki for years as a teenager by myself, but my wife had never done it until last night –

You & M.E. First Live Gig

There was an event this past Saturday in Fredericksburg, VA that was part of the Day To Serve.  People made pillow cases deployed military personnel, wrote them letters, collected food for those in need, and a lot of other activities intended to serve others in need.  As part of that, my wife and I were

Street Performing in Fredericksburg, VA

I decided last night that I need to get back into street performing.  Growing up in Hawaii, I would often take off from the North Shore of O’ahu so I could play guitar and sing on the streets of Waikiki.  It was so much fun to watch so many different kinds of people walk by

How To Use Guitar Looping

Here’s a sample of what guitar looping looks like for me.  I layer lots of ideas and I love how each time I approach looping it can be totally new and fresh, opening up the creative process to me each time. My son was up all night throwing up, so I chose to stay home

Gig Cancelled Tonight @ Amy’s Cafe

I just received a last minute cancellation for the gig tonight at Amy’s Cafe in Fredericksburg, VA.  Thank you so much to the loads of people who already showed their support by planning to be there and were making arrangements to hang out with me tonight.  I’ll still be there tonight for a bit if

Freedom To Choose – What It Means To Be Human

There is a space, an amount of time, between the moment we experience stimulus and our response.  In other words, when something happens, we always have the freedom to choose how we react. I was listening to a podcast by Srini Rao from the Unmistakable Creative recently and Srini was talking with Kevin Honeycutt.  There

Which Song Would You Vote For The Mid-Atlantic Song Contest?

Tell Me Which of My Songs You’d Vote For I just joined the Washington, DC Songwriters Association!  I’ll be submitting a song or two in their Mid-Atlantic Song Contest and want to know, from the demos I have below, which song would you vote for to win?  Keep in mind, these are demos and I

Be My Booking Agent

I’ve decided that for the time being, I’m not going to have one person act as my booking agent.  I’m going to look at it a little bit like crowd funding – I want it to be available to everyone.  You could be my booking agent! For now, if you find me a paid gig,
