Spring Quickly Turning to Summer21.05.2016
A late cold spring but maybe an early hot summer? Here's hoping.
Jazz at the House of Jazz, Laval and weddings are the main attractions this summer and I have have quite a few gigs planned for them.
Fall and Winter 2015 Cold Busters22.10.2015
To chase the chill that's setting in, I've got a few hot gigs lined up besides the usual corporate ones.
There will be a spooky Halloween Special at the House of Jazz Laval on Friday, Oct 30, 2015, at 6pm.
And then, back by popular demand, 2 shows at the Montreal Casino with my 5-piece band to get you up and dancing, on Sunday December 6 and 13, 2015, from 2pm until 8pm.
Summer 2015 - It's About Time!05.07.2015
It's finally here! The MBA is done so it's time to relax a bit in the sun. Maybe get some fresh inspiration.
Spring 2015 Is for Encores!14.03.2015
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 Projects21.01.2015
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.
T'is the Season....01.12.2014
Only 3 week-ends left until Christmas and then weee! laughing all the way into the New Year.

Wishing you the Happiest and Merriest of Holidays!

Take the Chill Out of Winter15.11.2013
I may be busy with school, but I always have time for fun!
Rumour Has it ...13.08.2013
I feel like a giddy teenager again! Back to school, and back to writing music late at night, only less angst-ridden this time! Yup, you heard right :) I'll be going back to school to pursue an MBA at Concordia's renowned John Molson School of Business, something I've always wanted and something that I know will help me navigate through this hazy industry we call arts and entertainment.
As well, breaking news! New compositions are on the rise, and a 3rd album is rumoured to be in the works! Stay tuned for upcoming shows, announcements and videos.
It's Official: Summer Starts in June!28.05.2013

See me again at the 2013 Yes Montreal Art Expo on June 2-3 and the usual hangouts: Piano Rouge on June 6, House of Jazz on June 11 and Upstairs Jazz on July 10, where my trio will serenade you with our ever-expanding repertoire. Come and relax, have a drink, dance, have fun. See EVENTS for more details.
Back again at the Piano Rouge as a trio tonight, Thursday April 11, a quartet on Friday night and as a quintet next Thursday April 18, when we'll also be shooting a video. Blues dancers, the floor is yours!
In between there's also my solo act at Casino Mont-Tremblant on Friday April 12 (lots of snow coming it seems), later that evening at Piano Rouge as a quartet and House of Jazz as a trio next Tuesday, April 16.
