NYMO's 90th Anniversary!

I hope you'll join the New York Mandolin Orchestra at our 90th anniversary show on June 1 in the auditorium of the New York Blood Center.  We've got all sorts of notable alumni coming back to join the group and I'll be playing as one of the featured soloists (alongside Tamara Volskaya) for the Vivaldi Concerto for Two Mandolins.

As some inspiration, here's some recent footage of the Aurora Mandolin Orchestra.  I had the pleasure of joining them on guitar for several concerts while I lived in San Francisco.

Hello, World 2.0

Welcome to the reboot of the website!

I recently completed a stellar run of a World Cup-inspired cabaret for Karneval with my dear friends at Zum Schneider.  The music and choreography drew from West African dance, Brazilian samba and bossa, opera, Rammstein, the most inspired version of La Bamba I'll ever play, and quite a bit more.  Check out some of Johnathan McPhail's photography here:
