December seems to be a bit of a strange month for me musically... My two main bands, No Apologies and Losing our Faculties, are not playing any full evening gigs this December, but I am partaking in some really cool events instead.
December 1, 2018 at Foggy Bottom Tavern, New City, NY 8:30 PM: My friend Vinnie is celebrating his 50th birthday by reforming all of the bands he has ever played in for one night of crazy rock and roll fun! I've been fortunate enough to play with Vinnie in three bands, so I will be representing The Lazy Sods, a Sex Pistols and Ramones tribute band, on bass, Sonny Lee and the Layovers, also on bass, and then Shirley is Hot, a classic rock cover band, in which I will play guitar. It's going to be a lot of fun for a lot of people as all of our musician friends reunite on one stage for a terrific evening!
December 8, 2018 at D&Ds in New City, NY 9:00 PM: NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN HELL - You get four terrific bands - Morticia, Our Fears, my band NO APOLOGIES, and AC/DC cover band Thunderstruck (of which I had an audition for many years ago and could not make it due to a blizzard and never did audition for them because of that). This will be a special night for us because NO APOLOGIES guitarist Ron Roberto will be playing his last show with the band before moving on to a new home out of state. It will be bittersweet, but I am looking forward to the show and showing Thunderstruck how badly they goofed!
December 22, 2018 at Foggy Bottom Tavern, New City, NY Time TBD: I get to do one last gig with Ron Roberto as we get to play a set together in SRO - a band in which I was a founding member. I'll be playing bass and still waiting for a set list! It will be a fun evening as every incarnation of SRO (almost) will be represented.
