Back in town in September 

Howdy all.  I spent much of August on tour with Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues in Ecuador.  We performed in Quito, Guayaquil, Chato, Otavalo, and Esmeraldas.  May of the shows were coupled with musical workshops that featured indigenous musicians as a cultural exchange sponsored by the U.S. State Department. It was a magnificent experience.  I will post photos soon!

I'm back in Chicago for September, with local shows to mention. I will resume my Wednesday residency at Kingston Mines (www.kingstonmines.com) on 9/6, 9/13, 9/20, and 9/27.  The Giles Corey Trio has a show at Harlem Avenue Lounge (www.harlemavenuelounge.com) on Saturday September 16, and my full band will be at House of Blues Back Porch on Monday 9/25.  I also have two early after work due sets at the Back Porch on Thursdays 9/7 and 9/14 with Neil O'Hara on keys.

I've got two shows this month playing in the S.O.B.'s-- Saturday 9/2 in Port Washington, WI for the Paramount Records Centennial Anniverary Festival (www.paramountmusic.org) , and Saturday 9/9 at Buddy Guy's Legends.

Spring has sprung! 

June shows! We will be at Kingston Mines Wednesdays 6/7, 6/14, 6/21, and 6/28, as well as Tuesday 6/13 (filling in for Joanna Connor) Also, I will be playing with Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues at Blues Fest on the main stage on Friday 6/9, at Rosa's on 6/10, and at the W.C. Handy Festival in Henderson KY on 6/10.

Ok, it's been a while  

Ok, it's been a while. I have neglected this website. But there are still shows and fun things . Before the apacolypse, I had good times in January playing shows with my band, Billy Branch, and Mississippi Heat.  Plus a recording session with the S.O.B.'s.
But there is some fun in February as well! Stoned Soul continues its Tuesday residency at Kingston Mines , except for February 7 - that will be a special Tom Marker Tuesday Bluesday, with Marty Sammon, Felton Crews, TY on drums, and Joe Rendon on percussion.
i've got other shows as well this coming month with Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues, and Mississippi Heat. Posting them now. Happy Groundhog Day!
