Middle East DOWNSTAIRS. Cambridge, MA. Tonight 10:30pm

I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited to play a show.

I haven’t played with a band in a LONG time and I haven’t played the

Middle East Downstairs in ten years.

first band at 7. we hit the stage at 10:30.

Psyched cannot describe what I feel. Will you share it with me?


Jamaica Plain Music Fest 2014

It’s always an awesome time at the JP Music Festival. The bands were great, the cold brewed iced coffee from the Cupcakery was life-giving, and I even got to play a set on the Trolley donated by Sam Adams,

after having played on Thursday at the JP “First Thursdays” event, busking outside JP Licks on Centre Street

Thank you very much to the JP Music Fest sponsors and organizers for having me – I look forward to keeping this relationship going.

New Sounds – RIP Amy Winehouse


It’s one of those things, when you find out more about an artist after they die. I thought originally (mostly due to the media supersaturation) that Amy Winehouse was “eh” and that her songs were super popular because of the media and vice versa.

Recently, I’ve started listening more and more to those songs and WOW are they good.

I hate this phrase, and I hate saying it, but this is a shame a talent like this was lost so young (at the musical-mythical age of 27 no less).

so here’s my attempt at a tribute. Wherever you are, Ms. Winehouse, keep on keepin on. Rock.



One week from today!

Dann & Christian rock out the Sidewalk Cafe, NYC
