I had a fun gig at the historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park which was the inspiration to the Stephen King Novel The Shining. No ghost sightings, but we had a great time.
This is my first record as a bass player, and it was recorded live!! I couldn't be more proud of this band, and how this album turned out. Please check it out, available for local sale in Greeley, and also on Bandcamp!
I'm excited to share that the Burroughs will be performing immediately before the Steve Miller Band at this year's New West Fest in Fort Collins, CO! We all hope to see you there!
I'm excited to mention I'll be going into the studio in May with a new band that I'm co-leading with my good friend Joel Harris. It will feature all original music, so please be on the lookout for that.
In general life is still very busy, but good
This past weekend I had the honor and privilege of performing with the legendary Monty Alexander, and his band the Harlem Kingston Express at the Telluride Jazz Festival and Dazzle Jazz Club in Denver CO.
This band was such a great group of people and musicians, and it was truly one of the most inspiring musical experiences of my life.
If you aren't familiar with this group or with Mr. Alexander please make sure to check them out via http://www.montyalexander.com/
