The old days! It's funny, but I never really liked piano lessons back then, but my mom insisted that I take them. I'll have to admit, piano was a bit tedious for a kid who really just wanted to play the drums. But when I finally stopped the lessons, no one could keep me away from the instrument! Thanks, Mom!

I had a great time at the awesome Urbana Free Library yesterday playing with fellow vibraphonist Joey Glassman and his trio, with Crystal Rebone and James Russell Sims. They are all wonderful musicians, and are studying at the University of Illinois.

Kevin Hart's "Beer Fest" Band! 🎷🎺🎹🎸🥁 Sometimes the Vibe Tribe is just not possible, so I'm forced to change things up, as I did for the recent 2017 Medici Craft Beer and Jazz Street Fair in Normal. Afterward, I thought it would be fun to bring this configuration elsewhere. So, on Friday August 18, we will play in Peoria at the Rhythm Kitchen Music Cafe from 7-10pm! Mark your calendars, and come join the fun.
