I am very happy to announce that I'll be doing a Dancing With No Shoes On! family music program every third Thursday of the month beginning in September at Happy Valley Public Library. I have done a number of programs at the library over the past few years, and I feel like I have developed a special relationship with the parents and children in this community. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to get there on a regular basis.
Dates for our program:
I am proud to announce the release of my newest recording, A Whisper in this Town!
Please join us in celebrating the release at Portland's fabulous Fremont Theater with fellow singer/songwriter Scott Gallegos, who is also releasing a new recording. The show is presented by my friend and producer Brud Giles and Fremont Recording. Doors are at 7:00pm. Music is at 8:00pm, with Scott taking the first set. With apologies to my little fans, the show is 21+.
For the first time since college, I'll be fronting a full band. This band features some of Portland's best players including Jeff Anthony, Paul Brainard, Jean-Pierre Garau, and Greg Hyatt - all musicians who contributed to A Whisper in this Town! It's going to be a ton of fun!
No more breaks in our schedule! We'll be doing every Thursday morning at 10:00am at the Village Ballroom now.
We will take a break on holidays. Thanksgiving will be our next day off.
Welcome back to the sanity of school routine! I've got a new schedule this fall, and I'm looking forward to playing some music and teaching some guitar!
I'm adding a few classes at Multnomah Arts Center this fall. I love teaching here! Portland Parks & Recreation does a good job keeping this programming affordable for families with children! Check the catalog for dates. Please note that the catalog's times for guitar classes are not correct. See below:
Dancing With No Shoes On! weekly music is also returning to the Village Ballroom on Thursdays. We'll be starting a little earlier this year - at 10:00am! (Please note that the third Thursday of every month DWNSO! takes a break and the Village Ballroom brings you the Waggle & Flap Dance Party.)
On the grown-up side of things, I will have a new CD finished and hopefully available in time for the holidays. Please keep an eye on my "adult" music at ChuckCheesman.net.
I'm also accepting a few new guitar students in my home studio.
Thanks so much for your support! I look forward to seeing you soon,
Thank you to everyone who has made our Thursdays at the Village Ballroom so wonderful!
On May 12th, 2016 the Village Ballroom will be closed for maintenance. We will return on May 26th for our final music time of the school year. We will be taking June, July, and August off for summer fun. Dancing With No Shoes On! music will return this September.
I will still be performing all around Portland and Oregon this summer. Please check my calendar or feel free to get in touch about a performance.
I have a fun new video for my song "Milkstache Blues" up on my Dancing With No Shoes On! Youtube channel. I'm wearing my dark sunglasses and playing a fun little blues guitar called a Martin CEO-7—which I really love playing almost as much as I love having chocolate chip cookies and milk!
