Just over a month, I am holding this event here in Seattle: It may be called DanceMS, but you don’t need to dance… you are welcome to sit and listen, and chat with friends! It’s a great time to gather with your community and have some fun. I happen to be the piano player for […]


It’s now been 24 hours since the second Dance MS started. (I know I’ve gone more than my usual time since posting, but I wanted to wait until I was done with the show…) And–another success!

But thanks to wonderful publicity such as this piece, published in […]


Not only that, I wanted to make a splash during my 40th year, and I’d say this is something pretty significant! Tomorrow night!!! Come on down to West Seattle and join us, the West Seattle Big Band, for a night of swing. Toss in a few bucks ($15 is the suggested donation) to help with […]
