Show October 24th

I’m playing my first solo gig in a long while.  I have been playing gigs constantly since I was 14, and I needed a little break, but I’m really enjoying getting back to it.  Rehearsals have been going really well, and I’m starting to feel in command of my material again.  If you’re in the NY area, come down.  Travis Larson Band and Ad Astra are also on the bill.  Both are incredible bands to see!  7PM at KJ Farrel’s 242 Petit Ave. Bellmore, NY 11710

Italia Straps and Gig Archive

Aug 2, 2016

I’ve been using Italia Leather Straps for years now, and I highly recommend them. They are incredibly comfortable, high quality leather. check them out at http://www.italiastraps.com/

I’m also working on assembling a gig archive. It’s been fun going back and looking at all these great shows over the years. This is a work in progress and if any of you remember a show that is missing, please send me a message.

Triii Klops

May 8, 2013

Setting up some gigs for the Summer after an unplanned hiatus due to Ricky’s Rotator cuff surgery. We should be up and running soon. In the meantime, I’ve been gigging with
Triii Klops:
Ethan Meixsell: Guitar and Vocals
Peter Gusmano: Drums and Vocals
Randy Gregg:Bass and Vocals
Michael Accurso: Lead Vocals

Trii Klops has given me the opportunity to play a lot of the music I grew up listening to, but haven’t had a chance to perform until now. A lot of Rhoads era Ozzy, some Dokken, Van Halen etc. We’ve had a blast at our gigs. More dates to announce soon.

Lots of news!

April 6, 2012

Lots of news to announce today.

Gigs: . Been rehearsing in earnest with the new live band. The band will feature Douglas Baldwin on Guitar, Harold Skeete on Bass, and Ricky Martinez on Drums. New shows to announce very shortly, as well as new dates with Peter Gusmano, including a show at BB King’s July 10th. Playing BB’s is always a blast and this show will feature a giveaway of a custom Nash guitar with autographs from members of Metallica, Supertramp, Def Leppard, and many others. It’s a one of kind instrument and it’ll be a show for the ages.

Studio Devil Software: I’m very happy to announce a new endorsement with Studio Devil. This is some incredible-sounding amp modeling software! Writing some presets and working on some demo videos for them featuring the Amp Modeler Pro and the Virtual Bass Amp Pro software. Their software captures so much more of the intangible character of playing through a real amp. Check it out!.

New Album: Also, been writing in earnest and started production on a follow-up to Pathos and Logos. This is my most ambitious writing so far.

Studio Upgrades: This winter we upgraded the studio significantly with the Black Lion Audio Signature Mod to the Digi002. The upgrade sounds absolutely stunning. Every mixing project has had more depth and transparency as a result.
