New Video - Urban Blue Performs Tom's Boogie

I want to thank everyone who came out to my big birthday bash show at the Red Light Cafe this past weekend. With 10th street closed and tens of thousands of people flocking to midtown for the Paul McCartney concert in Piedmont Park, I am truly grateful to the large crew of you who braved it all to come a few blocks over to see me with Urban Blue and celebrate my birthday.

And if you feel like reliving the moment with me, or perhaps would like a glimpse at what you missed, I've included a short video from the show of "Tom's Boogie," a tune where we truly get to showcase everyone in the band.

I have some photos I will post shortly, and I know a number of you took photos as well. I would love to get some of them from you and post them too. You can contact me or email me here. Thanks again!

The Middle Ages

It has arrived, my 40th birthday. I don't feel any different. A late night with good friends at Eddie's Attic listening to music (specifically Lynette Suzanne) and drinking Sweetwater 420 gives me about the same rough feeling in the morning as it did back when I was 39. So why all the fuss over this particular number?

Well for me, it marks 10 years as a cancer survivor, or my 10 year "cancerversary" as I've heard it called. And, frankly, that feels pretty damn good.

So I'm celebrating. I took the day off. I'm playing with my new Ipod Touch. I helped my son build a lego bionicle. I met my wife for lunch. I danced with my daughter to "All Mixed Up" by 311. I played a gig at John Howell Park for National Night Out.

It's nothing like I ever imagined, and everything I could ever hope for.

Many thanks to everyone for all the good wishes and to ansik on for the cool photo.
