Gypsy Jazz & Alarke tour and shows = a Midsummer Night’s Dream

 ::: GYPSY JAZZ IN DC/MD :::

::: SHOW / SONGWRITING :::

::: RETREAT IN THE POCONOS :::

From Monday, July 21 – Wednesday, July 23, some fabulous Gypsy jazz musicians (Pooquette (violin), Brandon Vetrano (guitar), Charlie Castelluzzo (guitar), Ethan Foote (bass), and I are headed to the Poconos to play a show and hang out in a cabin to write songs and enjoy the nature around us.  We went there last year and two original songs of mine, Pulses and Mignon, came to fruition.  A big thank you to our host, Jim Arbury!

::: ALARKE :::

::: @ BABYCASTLES 7/31 :::

A new band for Alarke consisting of musicians Jake DeJongh (guitar), Yohann Potico (bass) & Austin Deyo (drums) has come into existence and I’m truly excited (and a bit overwhelmed by all the preparations!) to present to you this music.  I’ve been working hard in the studio writing new material and just working on being a better musician. This lineup consists of my friends and their awesome music and it’s all going down at a hot new art gallery and music venue in Manhattan called Babycastles.  Here’s the Facebook link to the show.

::: VIRTUAL EXISTENCE :::

I’ve been lounging around lately in this parallel universe that is the online world – Instagram, Twitter, and some Facebook posts (though Facebook is not a good source to stay connected because the posts (even paid promoted posts) don’t reach the followers. I’ve been using Instagram as a vision board to accompany the music and a viewpoint into there whereabouts & whatabouts of my life as a singer. Even though I have two projects with Gypsy jazz and my original music under Alarke, I’m doing my thing as@alarke_ – come chill with me!
