Bronx Brewery This Saturday May 23rd!

There’s been a last minute addition to the schedule… The Bronx Brewery!

I love this place.  Awesome staff, great beer, food trucks and a really cool outdoor patio attached to the brewery where you can actually see the beer being made.  Come jam with me on Saturday!

Rich Mahogany- I’m Back in a Band This Summer!

With hopefully the last storm of winer passing us by, Im thinking about the schedule for the next few months.  After a few rehearsals and a trial gig, I think it’s time to announce that I’ll be joining the band Rich Mahogany this year!  It’s going to be a great season folks!.  In addition to my solo shows at Jamesport, Corey Creek, Baiting Hollow and more on the North Fork, The Castaway on Fire Island, Parlay in RVC and other spots around the island, Rich Mahogany will be playing full band gigs for some huge festivals and great venues on Fire Island!  Every Rich Mahogany show that you see on the schedule will be one heck of a party. 

The Show schedule is fully updated with all of my confirmed gigs for 2015, so check it out, Mark your calendars and I’ll see you out there!

#tummytimetunes

This week’s email has been sent!  If you’re not on the list, make sure you join up on the right side of this page.  The newsletter lets you know where to find a BL show, and also keeps you updated on all of the new recordings, videos, and happenings going on.

Last week, I recorded a little video of me singing to my daughter, Naomi while she had her tummy time.  It’s something that happens a lot, so I might make it a video series #tummytimetunes!  This one is the American classic standard “The Way You Look Tonight”, which I had been practicing to play for my sister’s wedding during her first dance with our dad!

Hanging out with my daughter Naomi, we decided to make a video for you guys… She’s the backup dancer!
I first thought of doing this when I saw Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel do “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, and it since evolved to include:

  • “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by the Tokens,
  • “Little Bitty Pretty One” by Bobby Day,
  • “Hakuna Matata” from The Lion King, and
  • “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrisson.

New Email List!

Since Facebook isn’t showing my posts to most of you, and Instagram gets annoying if I put my events up there, I’ve decided to go back to the old fashioned email list format.  I’ll be sending out weekly updates on that week’s events during the summer, and monthly emails during the winter.  If you want to know where I’ll be playing, join up!

If you’re a planner… keep an eye on the Bandsintown list on the right side of this website for all of my booked events, so you can plan further than a week in advance.

 

See you out there!

I’m a Dad!

Meet Naomi Marie Larsen!

photoYou may notice my sets will include a few more lullabies and Raffi tunes than usual… do not be alarmed.  Naomi won’t be able to join us at shows for a while, and while she is an unbelievable muse, she also makes her dad want to just stay home and watch her grow up 24/7.  I’m gonna need a support system to stay out there rocking guys… come sing along and party with me at the next show near you!

Hey check it out! D’Addario updated my artist profile:

I’ve been using their strings, as well as Planet Waves gear for years, and I love it! No other string has the tone and lifetime of D’Addario.

Musicians on Call

Today I’m going to be getting back involved with Musicians on Call, for the first time since I moved out of the city. I’m really excited. Musicians on Call has given me some of the most rewarding experiences in my life as a musician and it feels so good to use my music to give back to those in need in my own way.

Musicians on Call is an organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals all over the country. To all of my musician friends, I urge you to get involved. visit their website: www.musiciansoncall.org and submit an application. Even if you aren’t a musician, you can join the effort as an organizer, or through donating.

To my great friend Stephen Salyers (of MOC Nashville)… I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Thank you so much for getting me involved in the amazing program. It’s something that has really changed my outlook on life, and something I’ll continue doing as long as I can.

Some songs I’m planning to play today in Brooklyn:
Originals:
“Healing Love”
“So Like Me”
“Wake Me When We Get There” (Wrote this one with Stephen Salyers!)

Covers:
“All of Me” by John Legend
“Signed Sealed Delivered”, “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder
“Free” by Zach Brown Band
and I’m sure many more. It’s all about the audience :)
