I am truly excited to be doing a first time ever duo concert w/ the great Rufus Reid who also happens to be someone I went to high school with! We've performed and recorded together over the years but this will be the first time we've met one on one and made music on such an intimate level. Lots of stories to be told....

The debut performance of my B3 organ trio w/ two extraordinary young musicians that I truly enjoy playing with.
