It's been 2 years?!

Holy crap...it's been two years since my last post!

Not that I have had a whole lot to post about...the downtempo experiment that was "Best Served Chilled" at the Castle ended rather abruptly in July 2012.  Fatherhood, career, and life in general has made a weekly gig less of a priority, although I've managed to do special events at places like the Tampa Theatre, Tampa Museum of Art, the Glazer's Children's museum and the Morean Arts Center, so those have somewhat satisfied my need to play other people's music for other people.

I've also been putting my mixes up at mixcloud. Here's a link to one with hopefully more sooner than later:
