After a long hiatus, I’m happy to announce the return of The Loved Ones! We are recording a new album here in LA in May! We’ll be performing a handful of low-key shows between now and then to road-test our new material. On August 31, 2024 we’ll do a proper greatest hits set at the Whaam! Magazine 60th B-Day Blowout in San Francisco. Just before and after that, Bart & The Bedazzled will play two shows with jangle pop legends, Ocean Blue: August 23 at The Chapel (SF) and September 6 at The Troubadour (LA)! Check the ‘Tour’ page here for more details on all upcoming dates!

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of my second solo album, ‘Game Preserve’. It was never available on vinyl UNTIL NOW! Thanks to Lovemonk Records we have new vinyl LPs, gloriously remastered from the original 1/4 inch tape mixes! To commemorate this (and hopefully sell a few copies) I’ll play two shows: May 20 at Permanent Records Roadhouse (Los Angeles) and May 26 at Thee Stork Club (Oakland), accompanied by Jon Erickson (bass), Michael Urbano (drums), Dave Gleason (lead guitar) and Carrie Clough (vocals) – all alumni from the original album sessions. We will, of course, perform songs from the album. Additional harmonies will be provided by The Moore Brothers who’ll perform an opening set in LA!

Advance tickets for Oakland available now! Just find the link on my ‘Tour’ page!
