I am having a lot of fun (and getting a lot of exercise) playing with some of Toronto’s finest musicians in the Mardi Gras Band at the CNE again this year. We perform daily, starting with a 10 minute performance just inside the Prince’s Gates followed by the parade. The parade steps off at 6pm, the pre-parade performance starts around 5:45 pm
On Saturday, May 7, 2016 I had the great pleasure of performing withThe Weston Silver Band when we travelled to Cornwall Ontario to perform a concert of British brass band music. The Aultsville Theatre is a beautiful venue with very nice acoustics and our performance was warmly received by audience members who turned out in large numbers for the event.
I had the great pleasure of performing with the Weston Silver Band at the North American Brass Band Championships in Fort Wayne Indiana. The band placed 2nd in division one and was only a whisker away from winning the division title. Many thanks to Larry Shields, Theresa MacDonald and all of the band members who made me feel so welcome. It was a joy to perform with such fine musicians.

on Monday, December 14, 2015 at 8 p.m., Brassackwards will be performing our third annual Christmas Concert at The Smiling Buddha, 961 College Street in Toronto. It should be a great concert. Brassackwards is an eight piece brass group (four trumpets, three trombones and tuba) with some very talented musicians and great arrangements. It’s a great band to play tuba in with some very exciting charts. Please click here to go to our Facebook events page . I hope to see you there!
