Wise Guy is nominated for the East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) Jazz Recording of the Year! Very exciting news. Thanks to everyone for all of your continued support. The awards will be announced sometime between May 2 - 6. I'll be doing a showcase for the ECMA's during that time as well - stay tuned for more details.

The Lot Six gig is canceled this week (back on next week) and the Obladee gig has been moved forward a week and will resume the same bi-weekly schedule starting on February 14th. 

The Hardbop Collective is traveling to Happy Valley Goose Bay in Labrador for a performance at the Lawrence O'brien Arts Centre on February 9th. I'm very excited for this gig - I've never been to Labrador. Big shout out to Matt Barrett for making this gig happen. 

Also, this Saturday, February 3rd, the Hardbop Collective will be at Stayner's Wharf in Halifax from 8:30-11:30. Make sure to come out and say hello!
