Preparing for Shows!

I've been writing entirely too many song as of late and need to hit the pause button so I can record them! Good thing I have a nice little studio in my homestead. Let the games begin!

I'm excited to announce a new Record that I had the privilege of engineering and ripping guitar on! The latest 7" record This Ain't No Pizza Party by BassAmp & Dano. It wails, go buy it.
I'm also playing a show with them 07/10/2021 @ the Sinkhole here in St. Louis. First Show in a while.

Also, I got a pretty rad write-up on a reputable gentleman's culture website. The article is pretty great! Check it out Here

Talk soon,

It's all Good!

Having no more live shows to perform for a while has certainly been a challenge. Since I began playing shows, I have performed somewhere north of 2000 times! That is like playing a show every day for 5.5 years! Holy cow! As much as I miss performing, I have been thoroughly enjoying my time at home. I've been learning, writing, and recording new songs like never before (glad I built my recording studio).
I've also been occupying my time by offering guitar lessons online! It's a way to give back to the musical community that has helped me for so many years. It has been pretty successful. If you are interested in lessons, hit me up here!

I've also been transcribing a ridiculous amount of music for personal arrangements and students looking for particular pieces to play: over 200 so far! Dang! I've decided to offer this service to the public too. Hit me up here if you are looking for some songs to be written out for your education.

Thanks for reading,
Talk soon,

The Year is 2020.....

This is looking like it's going to be a fantastic year in music!

It seems I will be Rockin' & Rollin' my way through the next couple months with plenty of shows from Maximum Effort. We are playing with many great touring bands this Spring and Summer, so check back on this website for updates. Our song list is getting pretty full these days so we may just have to record another album soon to document them for all of time.

It has been an honor ripping' guitar with the "yaww"-inspiring, junk-food-sporting', not-so-mellow-sounds of the infamous Bassamp & Dano these past few months! I gonna keep Rockin' with these turkeys till they realize I like salad. We are hitting up Indianapolis, IN April 4th @ The Melody Inn for their Punk Rock Wrestlemania VI: Punk Rock on the stage, Pro-Wrestling style antics on and off the stage! Gonna be a blast!

Also, for those who don't know, I have been performing in the circus ring @ City Museum with the fabulous and wonderful Laura Lippert! We have created quite a spectacular show over the last few months. You should come see it and be awed. We do several performances a month, so check the site to stay informed and up to date

See ya in St. Louis or down the road,

So much cool stuff happening this month! First off, Maximum Effort is Scheduled to release a 10- year-anniversary-Gatefold-7"-Double EP on July 6th @ the Sinkhole! Ten songs for ten years.
Secondly, we will be touring with our STL buds, Shitstorm, in support of the new release. Midwest, here we come!

Also, this month, I will be continuing to provide musical accompaniment to an insanely awe-inspiring aerialist named Laura Lippert. If you have not seen her perform, you have not lived life yet. Come down to the City Museum, join us in the circus ring, and have your mind blown! These are also the perfect shows to bring your whole family too, as you've probably neglected contact with them, and need an excuse to reconnect.

Keep Your eyes peeled for Al Scorch shows too, I'll be posting them soon.
