Open Mic at the Stonewall Tavern

The Stonewall Tavern in Eagleville, CT hosts an open mic night every Tuesday night. It was formerly hosted by the Blaney Brothers, and is now hosted by Rob and Johnny. I usually record the sets and put them online, as well as occasionally take pictures. MP3 Recordings : on Mediafire For those interested in the particulars, I record everything using a Thinkpad T61 running Ubuntu Linux connected to a Behringer UCA-202 device connected via the USB port.

evoke

The band I’ve played in since 2000, bass and backing vocals. Obligatory blurb: evoke is a Connecticut based band consisting of hard rock guitars, funk style bass, and kick-ass drums. The band released an EP (self-titled) and a full-length LP (unofficially titled “Pushing the Envelope”), as well as a live CD of a show at the Webster Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut. They toured most of New England, playing in every type of venue imaginable.
