My good friend and incredible steel pan artist John Patti featured me at his most recent “Calyp-soul Christmas” concerts at the Player’s Theater in Sarasota and also the Bonita Springs Center for the Performing Arts. We debuted this duet version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” mashed up with “Carol of the Bells” featuring John on the darker double second steel drums and myself on upright bass and beatboxing. Filming was done by Charlie Woods and Andres Colin, and I got to play around with my new copy of Final Cut Pro to do the editing. I hope you enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Recorded for the most recent edition of Sarasota Day and the HuB‘s Stairwell Sessions. Featuring me on guitar, vocals and upright bass, and John Patti on percussion and steel pan. Thanks to Julie Brown, Scotty Felsenfield, and everyone else who helped put this together.

If you want to purchase the studio version of this song from my new album of the same name, you can grab it on iTunes and CDBaby.

Very excited to be holding my official CD Release Concert at the amazing Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine, a breathtaking venue which has hosted some of my favorite musicians in the world (Ani DiFranco, Martin Sexton, Bela Fleck, so many more!). I will be performing on Sunday, January 18th, 2015 (MLK Weekend), and will be joined by special guests Kelly Muse on Piano and Bass, Andy Robbins on Drums, and Candie Tremblay and Lindsay Brie on Vocals. You can reserve tickets and pre-show dinner on the SMAC website for 20$.
