  • The great things that happened in 2019 couldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for the amazing support received from all of you, and as well as all those great venues. But the real credit goes to all those amazing musicians that joined me on stage in 2019. So many amazing moments and epic jams which thankfully got archived on our live archive pages with the help of my good friend John Spignesi, my partner in Music Never Stopped, but also is killing it with his own bands JSB and Something is Forming. I am so so thankful to him for not only what he brings to our band MNS, but to take time out to archive RGB stuff, while doing his own stuff, is absolutely amazing and love you so much!

    I want to take this moment to thank all of these great people who I have shared the stage with in 2019, and know I truly appreciate your musicianship, as well as your friendship. Love you!
    If I forgot anybody, please forgive me, but PM…Id want to add you

  • Growing up I loved R & B and Motown, and a whole lot more, including classic rock and even disco for a time. Watching music shows like American Bandstand, Soul Train, and MTV also had a big influence on me.
    Then in high school I went to my first Grateful Dead concert, and was hooked! I began seeing shows, touring, collecting tapes, and all that came along, which including learning about not only about music, but also about other bands that encompassed The Grateful Dead. Especially the Woodstock bands, and at same time diving into Bob Dylan, The Radiators, The Neville Brothers, The Meters, Phish, and Widespread Panic. When Branford Marsalis performed with the GD, my ears began to find the love for jazz, and the legends, like the late Stanley Turrentine, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Ornette Coleman, and many more.
    After seeing the Grateful Dead, especially watching their two drummers, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman, I became interested in taking on percussions, however more of a fun thing to do than anything else. I soon started to play a wooden tone box back in the late 80’s, and then began to sit in with a few bands. After returning from living on the island of Maui in 1991, I purchased a pair of Green CPs by LP, followed by a pair of mini LPs, as well as a pair of Matador Bongos. All of which I still own and play today. I also added blocks, bells, symbols, and scaled-down rack, and began to play out with various blues bands around New Haven during the 90s. In the late 90’s I decided to take playing guitar a little more seriously, and began teaching myself, of course with a little help from some close friends. Soon I formed a band, began writing music, and playing out more often.
    The hobby continues……
