The Swunk Brothers: Founded by singer/songwriter Ken Weiland, this versatile duo was one of my favorite groups.  Ken is, in my opinion, one of the best songwriters in New England, and I was honored when he asked me to play bass, lead guitar and piano on two of his albums.  Here are a couple samples from the "Green Martini," named after a small club in Concord, NH that was home to many musicians and supported live music.

Doug Mitchell (Kingston Records) is one of the most requested performers in Southern New Hampshire. I had the privilege of performing hundreds of gigs with Doug since 2006, and look forward to our annual gigs (usually in July) back in New England. Here's a track on which I played keys and piano.
