It's been a very long time since I posted an update, but it's been a busy year! This year, I began subbing keyboards at the 10-time Tony winning Broadway musical, The Band's Visit. It's a beautiful, introspective show which shouldn't be missed.
I recently became a substitute conductor at another Tony-winning Best Musical, the incredible and long-running Kinky Boots. I've been lucky to be involved with this show for the past year as a keyboard substitute and always have a blast playing this great Cyndi Lauper score!

This summer, my wife Jacqueline Petroccia and I traveled to Nashville to record her debut album! It's a double-EP called "Champagne & Moonshine" and it features a side dedicated to country music and another side of standards and big band songs. We're incredibly proud of this project, which we recorded at the Tracking Room Studios, the legendary Quonset Hut on Music Row, and at Uno Mas Studios, with our fantastic engineer and co-producer, Doug Sarrett. The musicians on this recording are top call Nashville session players and the final product exceeds all our wildest expectations. I co-produced, arranged, orchestrated, and played piano and keyboards on this project. Champagne & Moonshine will be available soon on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby! More info and updated links when it drops!

In a week, Jacqueline and I head to Alabama Shakespeare Festival to present 3 performances of "Sometimes Patsy Cline", Jacqueline's solo semi-biographical show. We're taking a band of great Broadway musicians with us and will be formally launching the album at the shows! If you're in Alabama, come check it out!
