Long Island Fusion Fest

I’m happy to announce the debut of my live band will be June 2nd at The Hub. I’m incredibly blessed to be playing with such skillful musicians with a great attitude about woodshedding this challenging music. Rehearsals have been an absolute blast! Doors are at 8:00 PM. The Travis Larson Band and Carl Roa Band will also be performing, and then the three of us will get up and play a short set together. I can’t wait!

The band is:
Ethan Meixsell: Guitar
Douglas Baldwin: Guitar

Peter Gusmano Project at KJ Farrel’s

The live debut of The Peter Gusmano Project is April 1st at KJ Farrel’s at 8PM. I’ll be singing a couple of tunes, as well as playing bass and keyboard. I will also be performing that night with the Carl Roa Band. This is the first Carl Roa Band show in quite a while.

I spent some time in the studio with Carl both working on a new CRB release, and I also played bass on his project with Reggie Hendrix. That should be released shortly.

I’m also working on scoring a short film with Spyros Poulos, and a hundred other things. 2011 has brought a ton of new projects to the studio.

Also, some new dates with The Rob Balducci Band will be up shortly. Some more Night of Pure Guitar Shows with Dave Weiner are coming up.
