Jazzin’ it up on my ’59 Gibson ES125….

Got to dust off my ’59 Gibson ES125 today at Daybreak Church for a jazz tune we were playing. Man, I forgot how good this guitar sounds. Nothing beats it especially strung up with some D’Addario Chrome flat wound strings, running through a vintage amp w/ vibrato…….www.facebook.com/daddario

Back home from a radio interview/performance at WKAR at the MSU campus……

Back home from a radio interview/performance at WKAR at the MSU campus in East Lansing, MI w/The Verve Pipe. Tomorrow night we’ll be performing at The Ark (Ann Arbor, MI) – 8pm, where we’ll be debuting some new material. It’s going to be a fun show, but not looking forward to the Michigan / Michigan State game traffic and overall chaos that is expected tomorrow afternoon :/ Glad I’m not driving 😉

Video Premiere: The Verve Pipe – “Hit and Run”…..

We’re pleased to debut the “Hit and Run” music video. The video was created by Ofir Sasson, an independent animator and illustrator from Israel whose visual style was inspired by early animation and films from the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s and characterized by the use of simple geometrical shapes and lines, paired together with dark and gritty themes.
