Happy 2023, friends! Hope you had a great Christmas and Holiday season. 2022 was a very good year for us and we're grateful for all of your support and attendance. We have a lot on tap this year, including plans to release some new original music. Please stay tuned for that.

Also, I'm very excited to announce a brand new project. I've always been a huge Eagles fan, and after attending their most recent visit to Buffalo, I couldn't help myself. So we are debuting 'Tequila Sunrise' - WNY's newest Eagles tribute - on Saturday, Feb 4th @ Sportsmen's Tavern in Buffalo. This new band features Dick Bauerle on lead guitar/vocals, Mike Runo on lead guitar/vocals, Gary Styn on keyboard/vocals, Cave Wilson on drums, Tony Petrocelli on bass/vocals and myself on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. We're so excited to share this project with you. All of our upcoming shows through the end of February are on the home page and on the TOUR DATES page. Thank you again for your support!
