On 24 June 2014, I held my CD Release Party for my new CD “Encore” at Hugh’s Room. To say it was a success is an understatement! The room was full to almost capacity with my dearest friends and family. My parents and Anju’s parents came and met for the first time. My friends from many of the bars I play all the time – The Stone Corner, The Stone Cottage, The Rose And Crown, Harry’s Pub – as well as old friends I haven’t seen for years were there. Thank you to all who made it a success. The band was spectacular. I was fortunate to share the stage, and part of the floor with 13 other musicians – Paul Tarussov, Steve Dyte, Braxton Hicks, Will Hare, Todd Huckabone, me, Troy Feener, Tim Bovaconti, Nick Wyard, Alex McMaster, Amanda Penner, Brielle Goheen and Anna Atkinson. Not pictured here but present for the end of the evening was Druckfarben guitarist Ed Bernard who did a sizzling solo on “At the end of the Day” and finished with the signature mandolin lines in “There will be no encore”.

If you couldn’t attend, you can watch it at a future date as I’m planning to edit and release a video of the event!
