Hey Friends – got an important music update happening –

After an awesome 3 years, I’ve decided to leave The Yachtfathers. It was a truly rewarding voyage, and I was fortunate enough to gain some great new friends and musical connections along the way.

 

I want to give special thanks to the captain of the ship – Eddy Tabone, the boys from Nerds Gone Wild and the great Dr. Gary Styn, Mike Literman, Matt Coleman and Blake Ellman for an incredible experience. I’m proud to call all of you my friends.

The Yachtfathers will be continuing to sail on, and I’ve made myself available as a fill-in going forward when needed. Most importantly, I’d like to also thank everyone who has supported the band and come out to the shows over the last 3 years. It is greatly appreciated and I look forward to seeing many of you again down the road (or river, lake, sea, etc.).

With that said, I’m happy to announce a BRAND NEW project in the yacht rock realm. It’s called Too Yacht to Handle and we will be specializing in ‘70’s Gold and Smooth Yacht Rock’. Our debut show is on Saturday, March 30th @ The Cave in Buffalo

If you are so inclined to like the band's Facebook page, you can check it out HERE. And you can also check out our brand new site at www.tooyachttohandleband.com. 

 

We’re really pumped about this new project and we can’t wait to set sail with you. Our full schedule for all of our projects is listed here on the TOUR DATES page. Thank you again for your support!
