LIVE LOOPING ONE MAN BAND
What’s It All About?
The three years that followed my college graduation consisted of performing to rowdy crowds at legendary beach venues along the Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware Shore. We returned each fall to Happy Valley to make our case for the title of Penn State’s favorite bar band. Performing 8 shows a week allowed us to quickly hit our ‘10,000 hours’ — mastering the craft by living it each and every night.
While I would love nothing more than continue to perform with my friends, we’ve grown up. People have moved. Schedules have gotten crazy (read: we have kids). Fortunately, I married a Pittsburgh girl, and if you jump ahead a few years, you’ll find me on Carson Street with my friend Pete, busking for change and filming our adventures giving it away.
Just like that— music pulled me back in, and here I am sharing this rekindled love with you. With a drum machine and a loop pedal, I’m able to create the effect of full band, sparking the joy that comes from recreating the soundtrack to some of the best times of my life. These aren’t new tricks, but it’s new to me.
And I’m having the best time pushing myself to figure it all out.
