Back in December, I was invited by Estrella Galicia to do a session in their studio. I said yes, so long as I could record with LOS LIMBOOS, a fantastic group I saw the year before, backing up my pal Jack Rivera at Purple Weekend. Well, Estrella Galicia agreed as did the Limboos and the lovely results of that session have finally been posted! Be sure to check out me and the band performing ‘Pamela’!

I’m off to Spain again soon! First to Punta Paloma (where the Incarnations record was tracked) for recording sessions with Pajaro Sunrise, a terrific singer songwriter who’s asked me to co-produce. Then, starting in Barcelona on December 18, there will be an acoustic tour of Spain finished off by a first time ever concert in Rome Italy! Check for dates, cities and other info on the ‘Tour’ page!
There will be several acoustic shows in August-September including the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco Sept 17. Also, the full band will perform in Los Angeles at Pehrspace with LA Takedown Aug 15. Checkout the ‘Tour’ page for more details!
It’s been lovely playing guitar for Nedelle Torrisi every Tuesday night for her residency in LA at Harvard & Stone. On June 23, I’ll play with Nedelle AND the Bart Davenport Band!
A few days later, I’ll be playing an intimate, acoustic show in San Francisco with Big Eagle (aka Robyn Miller) at a cool, little venue called The Lost Church. Seating will be limited and and advance tickets are way cheaper! I encourage you to buy them right HERE.
Last weekend in Big Sur, to my complete surprise we (Marc & The Casuals) performed ‘Sail On Sailor’ with Beach Boy, Al Jardine! Here he is with myself, Aaron Olson and Jessica Espeleta.
That same afternoon, the Bart Davenport Band played a tight set. Later that night, we played at our pal Miller Carr’s wedding. I’ll be up north again this Saturday to perform at Miller’s record release show at my beloved hometown pub, The Starry Plough! Guitar wizard, Matt Baldwin is opening the show and I’ll have a couple of local celebrity guests, Tom Ayres (Persephone’s Bees) and Adrianne DeLanda (Extra Classic)!
It’s an honor to be included in this year’s Hipnic lineup which includes such heavies as The Flamin’ Groovies, Nicki Bluhm, Jonathan Wilson and the great Al Jardine! I’ll perform twice on Sunday afternoon, May 17, first with the BD Band and later that day, a set with Marc & The Casuals. Pack up your tent and we’ll see you there!
Hello little bunnies! I will be in San Francisco on Friday, March 20, playing in Marc & The Casuals at THE CHAPEL. There will be several amazing guest performers sitting in that night, including Adrianne DeLanda (Extra Classic) and the great Nick Waterhouse!

Wow. I’ve been around so long that my music is being “reissued”. Two classic BD tunes, ‘The Saviors’, b/w ‘Beg Steal Borrow’ are now on a beautiful, new 7inch 45 rpm single. Lovingly put together by You Are The Cosmos, it features photography from the same period by the mega-talented Terri Loewenthal. For US customers, the best way to purchase is from good ol’ GET HIP RECORDS (full circle, the first record I ever made was on Get Hip)! People in the rest of the world can and should buy it HERE on the YATC site.
