9/11 Tribute CD - "Monahan's Old Truck"

HI Folks

For the next week, we will be featuring our tribute CD "Monahan's Old Truck". The songs are based on stories told to me in inetrviews with firefighters from Ladder5/Engine 24 in the East Village New York City. It is also featured on  and on our Facebook page (Spice of Life).

"During the first weeks after 9/11, while New York City courageously recovered from the largest attack on American soil, we as songwriters started trying to express the experience through music, and hopefully provide comfort and support through a truly American story. Many people and companies donated money, time, and equipment to help produce the album pictured above, including the Northeast Blues Association, and the Watervliet Fire Department, all in upstate New York. But nothing could ever equal the priceless contributions made by the NYFD  and  the many other first responders who  protect that great city.   These stories were gathered by direct interview with the firefighters at Ladder 5 /Engine 24 in the East Village. They had lost 11 souls. The CD insert contains further inspirational information.  Profits from the sales of this music are still donated to the Women’s and Children’s Relief Fund for that particular fire station to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice."

Peace on earth and good will to all,



in the Studio

Hi folks

I was in the studio  a day ago finishing up the last vocal for the Christmas CD. Now it is mastering time as most of it has been mixed. Soon it will be sent off for duplication and Voila! A new CD pour toi mes amies. 

All my best from the west




My thoughts and prayers go out to the families caught in devastating floods around the world. Especially the children.

Christmas in July???

Hey guys!

We started mixing and mastering our songs for our NEW Christmas CD. I am working with Mark Cargill and Greg Cook in LA to finish the latest material. I am very excited about how the project is turning out and I hope you will be delighted as well. We are also planning West Coast / East Coast performances and appearances. I'll keep you updated on my calendar page once we get up some speed. LOVE to see you face-to-face.

Love ya


Hello all you beautiful people out there - one way to help our families on the Gulf Coast

Hi Guys

 After searching I found one way you may like to help our families stricken by the BP Gulf Coast Oil disaster - United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area

Hopefully this link will take you to their home page. They have a great video going with jambalaya music playing , interviews with the fabulous four crab fisher/skippers from "The Deadliest Catch", and clips of interviews with families impacted economically by this horrible mess. I hope this is helpful..."united we stand"....
