Harefest 2017 was once again, absolutely off the hook! Jason Fellman and Joan Monen brought the finest rock tributes to Pat’s Acres in Canby, OR for 2 full days and nights of all-out festival madness. I performed with Shoot to Thrill again this year, and was floored by the professionalism and attention to detail so many bands tackled. This year’s lineups included:
Can’t wait for this one… not only do we return to Chicago, one of my favorite cities, but we rejoin B-52s and our friends The Romantics. Mike Skill, guitarist from The Romantics and I have done some really cool music projects in the past, and may end up releasing some of the stuff we recorded a few years ago. In the meantime, get down to RibFest and Rock with A Flock!
Had a blast getting to know the people of Dayton, Ohio at Hollywood Gaming and Raceway on June 24. Mix 107.7 and Stranger were great to support A Flock of Seagulls in Style.
Looking forward to a fun run of shows this Spring/Summer! AFOS will be performing after the debut of the world premier of the documentary film “Dare to be Different”.
Featuring interviews and rare footage of U2, Blondie, Duran Duran, Joan Jett, the Cure, Billy Idol, and Depeche Mode, Dare to Be Different is a nostalgic look at WLIR 92.7, the radio station that introduced these bands to a U.S. audience. Director Ellen Goldfarb tells the story of the rise and fall of this institution, and the birth of the punk and New Wave communities. With Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Billy Idol, and others.
After the movie: A live music tribute to WLIR from A Flock of Seagulls, the English Beat, and the Alarm.
I had the time of my life w/A Flock of Seagulls this month, touring the Caribbean and experiencing a whirlwind journey through the 80s.
The tour began at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton, FL. The set can be viewed here on YouTube: Read more
A Flock of Seagulls recently enlisted me to fill the drum throne while my buddy Michael Brahm recovered from serious burns that he suffered. My first show was on January 9, 2016 at the Suncoast Showroom in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’m hoping MB heals up quickly. It’s a pleasure to be considered to fill that role while he’s recovering!
