Hey all, and welcome to my website. Thanks to everyone for all the support over the years, and happy Summer 2022
If you are a fan of THE MORNING SHOW on AppleTV+ don’t miss this scene from Episode 1, Season 2 as “Bradley & Eric” sing my arrangement of WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEW YEARS EVE with my “Hi Tech Big Band” (meaning just me, with my friend Dave Scott on Lead Trumpet). Later in the season I am on the show playing a piano player who accompanies the character Daniel Henderson. What fun!
Also...I am thrilled to be focusing on my new and very personal project for mid-2023 and beyond. FROM SAMOA TO SINATRA honors the music of both Mr. Frank SInatra and my mother Mavis Rivers, whom Sinatra signed to his Reprise Records label in 1961. The answer to the question I am getting a lot…YES that IS me on SirusXM’s Siriusly Sinatra Channel. Happy to say that two tracks (plus a bonus Christmas track) have been completed as a preview to the full May of 2023 release of the entire project. These three preview tracks can be heard NOW on SiriusXM’s Siriusly Sinatra Channel. Thanks to today’s technology I get to duet with Mom’s voice from 1961(!) on a couple of these tracks!
I have created a special “Preview Page” for this project that dives a bit deeper into this upcoming chapter of my performing life. Check it out here.
In other news.... as we navigate this ongoing pandemic we are proudly about to begin our TENTH season of Macon Pops with more unique and exciting shows for the 2022-23 season. Please visit MaconPops.com for more details.
Also my list of Pops shows (below) is being reimagined and redesigned for future Pops Orchestra concert season(s). Check back very soon!
In the meantime stay safe and healthy everybody, and I look forward to seeing all of you in-person very soon!
