On Tour with Paulie Cerra
Paulie Cerra is a fabulous Saxophonist Saxophonist, Singer, Songwriter, and Piano player that I have had the honor to tour with. He’s played with blues greats such as Little Milton and Lucky Peterson to name a few. Paulie currently tours with the amazing Larry Carlton and Joe Bonamassa worldwide. Along with being a highly respected Sideman, Paulie has released two of his own albums with original compositions covering Blues, Soul, and Jazz. In August 2019, Paulie completed his first European Tour under his own name and I was able to join his band on the road alongside legendary bassist Billy Haynes and Drummer Simon Danninger. Building on the tours success, he will return in the Spring of 2020 and I will have the honor of performing guitar for his music again.
On Tour with Allen-Forrester Band
The Allen-Forrester Band is a Band I started with my long-time friend, Josh Allen. Josh and I became friends friendship started in 2004 at the legendary BrickHouse Brewery Sunday Night Jam on Long Island. After years of sitting in with one another, The Allen-Forrester Band will prove what has been in the making for a long time. What you can expect from our shows is an onslaught of heavy, yet soulful Blues and Rock drawing from Josh’s own original catalogue, as well as various Cover Songs that have shaped the our musical journey and careers. Following our first successful tour of Europe in early 2019 with Hendrik Herder on bass and Johannes Klütsch on drums, we’ll be back hitting the road in March 2020 with new original songs and a lot more music!
