This time last year…

I was playing with my main crew at our local watering hole, Rockwood Music Hall. Rockwood seems to be riding the COVID wave as best they can, but a good number of venues in the city have closed down. Including Arlene’s Grocery, the first venue ever I played in the city.

These sure are hard times for us all, especially in the wide world of live entertainment.

Here is a clip from the last show I played in February of 2020. I remember the lively room, the loving air and the laughter. And I know we’ll get back to that spot again in due time.

This song is called “Forgiven” and it will be on my new album due later this year.

#TBT Riverbugs Live at Rockwood

Here is a little throwback Thursday with Riverbugs – LIVE from Rockwood Music Hall at the end of ’18. Cian McCarthy created the string arrangements and we were lucky enough to have a wonderful quartet playing with us! I’m eagerly awaiting the day where we can safely gather to do this again!
