We just performed this past weekend on June 4 at Complete Actor’s Place in Sherman Oaks, CA. We performed a 20 minute set of songs that are currently being recorded for the full length LP. Everybody there was so receptive to the music!! It was such an incredible night!! We even had our friends from Project AK-47 (http://www.projectak47.com/) out in Franklin, TN with us that evening. Thank you so much for everyone that came out to hear the music and to support!!

The past month has been crazy! Been in and out of the studio as usual. But so many other things have been happening as well…
a couple weeks ago, I had 3 gigs back to back!! drove to manhattan beach to northridge to downtown LA!!
performing with the band in c28 northridge!
we have some of the biggest fans around.. wanda onandia, 1/2 of Endure Apparel…
…ferdinand onandia, the other 1/2 of Endure Apparel…
and our dear friend mayara who comes out to all of our gigs!
and this is what we do when we’re not performing…
with rob who is the owner of c28 northridge.
do you see what’s in wanda’s hand? as most of you know, i recorded some songs out in nashville with an grammy nominated, stellar and dove award winning producer, antonio neal. we had the cd’s available in the store during the day of the event. but it gets better. if you missed out on the event but want to still get a copy of the music, you can go to c28 northridge and get a copy there!!
thank you so much to rob, nate, and the rest of our family at c28!!

Yesterday, Jeehye and I decided to go out and do some location scouting around LA for possible photoshoot locations. It was such a beautiful day and the weather was great. And we got some really great shots while we were out and about.

We went down to San Diego again yesterday. Wow! It was such an incredible day! Got so much done in a short period of time! The band is amazing!! Got the best in the world!
My amazing Producer Dave Murrant.
Derrick Espino (Co-Producer and Electric Guitarist) and Craig Zarkos (Drums and Mixing)
Nelson Rios (Bass). Nelson is one incredible man and it is such a blessing and honor to be working with him. Great talent but a greater heart.
Derrick and Michael Olsen (Electric Guitar). Both bringing their soul, funk, and Japanese flavor.
The sky was so beautiful as the sun was setting over the horizon! The moon almost looks like the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland! 😉
And towards the end of the evening, this is when we start to get goofy…
The Dream Team!
