Exhibitions

My first exhibit was on December 1st, 2017 at the  9:30 Club . I performed my music with my piece  9:30  onstage. While my band accompanied me (Anthony Pirog, Joe Lally, Aria Aquino) I cut the vintage Japanese robe I was wearing and wove it into the piece. We raised money for local non-profit Casa Ruby and raffled the piece off to a winner in the audience. Poster art by Jess Scott.
