Aloha Friends –

My gypsy jazz band ‘Gypsy Pacific’ is back together here on Maui! Our violin player recently moved back so we reformed the group. We are a four piece unit that plays music in the style of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and other greats in the genre: Tom Conway (lead guitar), Willy Wainwright (violin), Phil Benoit (rhythm guitar) and Marcus Johnson (bass). Check out┬ámy original tune ‘Hurricane Django’ performed at Mulligan’s Maui on November 3, 2017.

I recently played two concerts with legend Willie Nelson at his ranch in Luck, Texas and we had a blast! The Heartbreaker Banquet is a really fun event held on his property during Austin’s SXSW week. I hope you like the photos from the event!

Last Sunday I played at ‘Bigstock’ in Bend, Oregon and had a great time! This event is a benefit for Oregon Adaptive Sports and I was proud to participate. The weather was perfect except for a brief storm that rolled through and all the music acts were a treat for the crowd. Please check out http://www.oregonadaptivesports.org

I played at the Maui Film Festival opening for the movie ‘Supermensch’ which is about legendary entertainment manager Shep Gordon. The new Seaside Cinema at the Grand Wailea Resort is incredible! Be sure to check out the movie when it plays in your area. (photo #1 by Jonathan Starr)
