This is just Howlin’ and his ukulele. And maybe a kazoo or so. This act is best as an opening act, a house concert or as part of a varieté or burlesque show. With house concerts this act will be two 40 to 45 minute sets. In all other circumstances it’s best as an hour or less.
With A Duo
This is Hobbit & Hare with “Hare” being Andrew “Sketch” Hare on upright bass and harmony vocals. On the rare occasions that Sketch is unavailable it will feature either a different bass instrument or a soloist, hand selected from amongst my amazing friends. Great for clubs, coffeehouses, house concerts, private parties, etc. We like to keep these appearances to two hours or less.
With A Full Band
This will be either my longstanding quartet Snake Suspenderz or Accidental Rhino. Accidental Rhino is a fluctuating back-up band for me and will include two or more of my talented friends. It usually comes in either a trio or quartet format, but has been known to grow to as many as six people.

(If you prefer an 8×10, this version is designed to be printed out to standard 8.5×11″ glossy stock and with just two chops on the paper cutter, voilá! An 8×10 glossy.)

Also, there’s a video of me performing For An Old Man on my Music & Video page.
Moonglow. An older recording, but still pretty representative of my “old school” stuff.
