New Dweezil Zappa CD!

Posted: November 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

DRUM TRACKS ARE DONE for the new Dweezil Zappa CD! 12 songs. His first CD in 10 years. Joe Barresi got unbelievable drum sounds. We used different combinations of drums, cymbals and mics on EVERY song. Sooooo much fun!!!DweezilStudio_Day1_057

The CD I’ve been working on with Keram Malicki-Sanchez was released last week, and we celebrated with a show in Toronto. It was an amazing night! The executive producer of the record is Alex Lifeson, who also played guitar on 3 songs. We were lucky enough to have Alex sit in with us on 2 songs at the show! It was an incredible experience getting to play with him.

We had a great time on our 18-day run! The Montreal Jazz Festival was super fun; Quebec ALWAYS has amazing audiences. The Brooklyn Bowl in NY was incredible, and I got to see lots of friends as we travelled around the East Coast and into the Midwest. Really looking forward to the little California run beginning August 8th. Then the next leg starts September 9th in Kalamazoo. Hope to see some of you at the shows!!

ZPZ fall tour!

Posted: November 22, 2013 in Gigs, News, Photos

I’m in Gothenburg, Sweden, at the end of the 7th week of our 8 week run. It’s been a blast! The shows have been incredible…notably the amazing crowds in Quebec City, Amsterdam, London, and NYC on Halloween. We started the tour in Lincoln, Nebraska, and after hitting much of the Midwest we went to Canada for two weeks. Then back down the East coast and over to Europe, starting in Belgium. We played nine shows in the UK, and begin the Scandinavia shows tomorrow. Check out some pictures below. After Europe we return to LA for three shows at the Roxy on December 7th, 8th and 9th. The fun will then resume at the end of January, for a six-week US tour. Playing FZ’s music every night is an honor, and it’s been an unbelievable experience. I hope to see you on the road!!!
