Sleepytime Gorilla Museum

Just got my tickets, thank you Taube!

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum….delectable artists, not to be missed, April 6th @ the Taube. With Nils, voice of MY GRANDMOTHER, Carla, Eighty Mile Beach‘s first release. Huzaah, some of the greatest musicians I know and then there’s our connections with Mark Stikman.

Mark Stikman aka Stichman, was a leader of a tribe of us at SUNY Potsdam, Crane School of Music, that included artists Gabrielle Curry and John Yellen. Crane was where I got some of my early improv training jamming with musicians Larry Ham, Pat O’Leary, bassist, Pete Cantasonti, drummer, I also jammed with the records of Bonnie Raitt, Eric Dolphy, and John Lee Hooker in my dorm room (!)

Crane was an amazing place to play seven hours a day, never learned a whit of the music biz but played in every ensemble I could get in to including the orchestra and concert band which led to performing in the 1980 Winter Olympics orchestra and national anthem band!

I’ve some cool engagements coming up, hope you’ll attend, where would I be without you? Consider buying product from my store, attend a concert, license a track for your movie, donate to projects. And thank you for all your years of support. Carry on!
