HOLIDAY SHOW SCHEDULE

Happy Thanksgiving all! Just enjoyed some much-needed downtime to decompress and take care of a couple Me things. But my Holiday Schedule starts next week (12/3) at the one and only Navagator Bar & Grill. Drummer Adam is joining me, and we'll have some special guests stepping in too. Plus, I can't perform at the Nav without including some Jim Morris songs, so that's on the docket as well. SEE YOU THERE.

The lyrics to this Rolling Stones classic came back to me as I was watching the sobering news coverage of the bombing in Afghanistan, and then the devastation left by Hurricane Ida.
In an effort to use the power of music to help those who desperately need it, and also pay tribute to the late great Charlie Watts, we got together to lay down this version for you.
