  • Fall and Winter 2015 Cold Busters


    To chase the chill that's setting in, I've got a few hot gigs lined up besides the usual corporate ones.

  • Spring 2015 Is for Encores!


    Let's send winter packing! We'll be wrapping up March with shows at the House of Jazz in Montreal (March 26, as a quartet) and in Laval (March 28, as a trio).

    Then in April we'll crank up the heat and the tempo. I'm really excited to perform again at the Montreal Casino, on the center stage, with the full 5-piece band on Thursday April 2 and 9 from 8pm to 1am! And then back at the House of Jazz Laval for April 24-25 with my trio.

  • New Year, New Shiny Projects


    This should thaw the deep freeze we've been plunged in: for the first time EVER I will hold center-stage at the Montreal Casino with my 5-piece band on Thursday, February 5, 2015, 11pm-1am, for a late-night mix of smooth and high energy songs, guaranteed to bring on a heat wave to melt the Saint-Lawrence. Come to see us and have some fun and maybe try your luck too, but do it responsibly.
