Thank you for your support !

Back in Berlin. I got clobbered with the usual jetlag but I'm fine now after a week of falling asleep standing up. My new album "Soul Of A Man" is being manufactured as I write and will be on the market shortly. It's produced by Thomm Jutz in Nashville and features some great musicians. There are several co-writes with my brother Frank and even one with my brother Jon. Keeping it in the family.

I had a great visit last week here in Miami with my brother Frank and Steve Kimock. We talked old times and played new songs. They're still the best.

December 24, 2017

I'm safe and sound in Miami with my brother Jon on Christmas Eve. The temperature outside today was 85 degrees fahrenheit in the shade. I can live with that. I wish everybody a blessed holiday season !

November 13, 2017

I'm putting some final touches on my new album today. Winter is quickly closing in up here in northern Europe. Almost time to go see brother Jon in southern Florida.

I enjoyed playing to a crowd of new faces last Tuesday night at Madame Claude in Kreuzberg. It's quite an interesting venue with tables and chairs attached to the ceiling. That's Berlin.

I had a great time playing Dodo Kreuzberg last night. The singer/songwriter genre is alive and well in Berlin. Thank you Rolf and Harald for supporting "live" music and thanks to all the fine people who arrived early and packed the house.

The Kimock family has departed from Europe after Steve and I had two successful shows in Germany. There are many videos posted on You Tube from the Berlin Guitars concert. We had a great time exploring Berlin and driving down to Bavaria. I will miss him. It's such a pleasure to play with such and incredible guitarist.

July 24, 2017

I'm excited about the arrival of Steve Kimock and his family to Berlin on Wednesday night.
Steve and I will play two shows this upcoming weekend. One show in Berlin and one show in Bavaria.
It's always a pleasure and indeed a privilege to play with Steve. He's an incredible guitarist and an old friend.

I'm looking forward to playing at Artliners in Friedrichshain tomorrow night (Friday, June 23rd) with Ben Lehman on acoustic bass and Konstantin Athanasiadis on tenor saxophone. Artliners is a small but hip music club with a good sound system. I've been in my time machine this morning and have been practicing a Patrick Sky song that I love called "Many a Mile". Just like many songs I'm attracted to, it was recorded in 1965 and I think I could do a good version of it. Maybe with Steve Kimock in July.

I had a great time playing Zimmer 16 in Pankow last night. A friend came by and filmed the show so I will post some new videos soon. I've been recording new songs with Moabit Spacekonsta at the desk producing. Konnie is a great sax player and we're having fun at the recent gigs and at these sessions. I'm told spring will arrive in Berlin in May lol.

I'm enjoying visiting my brother Jon in Miami. The weather is gorgeous and it sure beats the European winter.
I have posted some upcoming shows in Berlin for March and April I look forward to seeing some good friends there.

Back in Miami. I'll be playing at a benefit concert for PACT Saturday, Jan. 7th, at Walt Grace Vintage, 229 Northwest 26th St. here in town. Show starts at 7pm. It's a great cause which fosters pet care for children and veterans.

I'm heading over to play a new venue today in former East Berlin. It's called BARt. It's a lounge in an old hotel on Auguststrasse. I like Berlin Mitte. It has a vibrant feel and is always full of characters. Even though it's getting colder out and dark earlier I'm keeping my spirits up and my guitar in my hands. Hope to see some of you there.

August in Berlin this year has been relatively mild. I've been writing songs and enjoying the city. I played a few outdoor shows and have been in the studio too. Gigs will start up on September 1st in Kreuzberg. My book is coming along too so I'm a happy camper.

June 25, 2016

We're having a heat wave here in Berlin. I'm hiding out in my living room with the curtains drawn for another hour or so and then will brave the city streets in search of nourishment. The gigs have all been well attended and I'm gearing up for a few more in July. I've been writing my book (slow going) and have gotten good feedback thus far. Summer in the city.

May 16, 2016

The Berlin Guitars show last Saturday was sold out and Joachim Westphal filmed the entire two sets. I'm looking forward to seeing the edited version tonight.

May 10, 2016

Summer is here in Berlin and it rocks !
I'm looking forward to performing this Saturday night (14th) at Berlin Guitars ..
There are only a few tickets left so please call Leonard at 030 2363 0637 for a reservation.

April 19, 2016

I've been playing lots of old and new venues in Berlin since I've returned from America. I'm presently in Heidelberg after a few concerts in Bavaria and The Black Forest. Although not any easier, the shows seem to getting better and better as time marches on. After fifty years of playing gigs, I seem to be getting the hang of this. I'm working on my book daily. Slowly but surely something seems to be taking place. I'm not sure if it will be any good but it's my story and I'm sticking to it.

December 28, 2015

I had a great Christmas with my brother Jon here in Miami. I'm getting some writing done and booking shows in Germany for 2016.

December 5, 2015

I'll be playing with Ben Arnold and Scotty Brickilin tomorrow night (Dec. 6th) at the Fahrradkeller in Berlin.
Ben and Scotty are both very talented Philadelphia natives who are presently on tour in Germany.
The following week I pack a bag and head for sunny Miami !

November 10, 2015

It's been a beautiful autumn in Berlin. I'm writing songs for my new album and working on my book. Well blessed.

August 18, 2015

I'm glad the heat wave seems to be over for the moment here in Central Europe. I was in the South of France enjoying the sunshine and played a few gigs here in Berlin upon returning. I started writing a book and am pushing ahead on that front. I have a lot of melodies written that I'm happy with and reaching out to my talented brother Frank for some help in the lyrics department. Life is good. I'm a grateful man.
