    Please join us for some great tunes on St. Patrick's Day! Osteria is an awesome restaurant with great Italian food and this means you get to eat delicious food while listening to some great music. Please make your reservations early! I know that there will not be standing room.

    I am excited to play my first show within San Francisco city limits! Bazaar Cafe is an intimate, cozy spot in the Richmond District (21st & California) where many of the city's established singer-songwriters had their first performances. There is no stage and no amplification -- just me and my guitar hangin' out. Come on out, relax have a coffee (or a beer) and take a nice break from the holiday rush!
