The C.I.T.Y.: videotaping SUPERBAD tonight

Come one come ALL!!! Party bus with The C.I.T.Y.! Refreshments,  moving stage for you to be the star and cameras capturing everything.


In Dallas with Kuumba Freeque & Co.

I have the pleasure to jam out with Kuumba Freeque, an uber-talented group that rocks out shows all over the place. Tonight we’re rocking out on the Christian tip for a change nevertheless a little secular isn’t so bad eh?

Last night we rehearsed with the entire band, preparing for tonight’s show at One Community Church in Plano, TX. Packed with me is the Fender Deluxe 24 and my trusty Sansamp DI beauty.

Rehearsing for tmrw's gig. Pulled out my Fender and jamming through some fx.

Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch

This is the second time in two weeks that I’ve jammed out on this main stage. The mega Ampeg stack was provided again and again I brought out the 635.

Playing alongside keyboardist Daniel Porter, drummer Brandon Thomas, and guitarist Jacob Minter we delivered music for singers as Kai Hicks, Sqeaukie, Tremaine Hawkins, Ahmad Davis the performance was bound to be on point.
