The Dublin Pub - January 17, 2008 - This place was so packed it's like doing a gig in a sardine can!.

And thanks Chrissy for taking some pics.... seems I'm hardly ever in the shot!

The Dublin Pub - December 1, 2007 - This was a very fun night! The place was packed, a few of my friends came out, and everybody was quite festive! The booze flows freely around this pub, and everybody was feeling a bit loose and having a great time. There was much dancing and singing.

Thank you to Roger for shooting the pics!

The Bamboo Grille - Featuring MATT - November 21, 2007 - My good buddy Matt made his big debut this night and busted out a few of his original songs. And he did a GREAT job! He didn't know he was debuting this night, I kind of surprised him with it and put him on the spot. Matt studied guitar with me for a while and now we just jam together when we can. He is the consummate student of "music" and is making wonderful progress in playing, writing, singing, performing, and developing his craft while finding his own style. I have a feeling you'll be hearing more from him. Way to go, Bro!!

Thirsty Moose - November 10, 2007 - Special surprise appearance by Rob Garcia!
What a fun night this was! Rob and I started gigging out together as a duo in 1990 and did a million gigs! Then we went our separate ways and lost track of each other for many, many years. Then Rob surprises me and shows up at the Moose out of nowhere... with Corrine who I haven't seen in just as long, and it was like we never missed a step. As you can see by these pictures, we had a lot of fun playing together again!! Rob... great to see you my friend, thanks for stopping by. Feel free to stop by and sit in with me any time you like. And for God's sake man... bring a frickin microphone stand with you next time! :-)

I got an email from Rob a few days later (pasted below), and he wrote some very nice stuff. Thanks Bro! Love ya!

Hey Bro,
Once again, I must express the incredible joy for both Myself and Corrine, that you made possible this last Sat.  That last set was actually quite something!  I had a TON of fun playing with you for sure, however, as the years move on, there is something much, much greater to be said for simply just hangin' with an old friend that shared in, what I remember to be, one of the greatest segments of time in my life. I never really thanked you for that, and I simply wanted you to know.  I found you to be 100% Floyd, the last two times I saw you, and I think that it's very cool that you have not changed that very easy going, very free spirited, VERY talented Floyd that I was quite privileged not only to have played with, but was also honored to have made his friendship as well.
Enough with the homo bullshit now...send me the fuckin' pictures!!!

Robert Garcia

Johnnia's Labor Day Party - September 1, 2007 - Thank you Johnnia for having us at your party! A great time was had by all! What a beautiful place! Let's do it again next year!!

Cats-Cade - June 2, 2007 - I can't even put the experience I had at this event into words. And while the pictures don't even do it justice, they're still fun to look at... and re-charge for me the collective energy of an amazing community of people.

A good time had by all and a great way to end the year. Thanks so much to all my friends who come see me here, and to the Thirsty Moose! See you next year!!!

The Clarksburg Inn - December 21, 2006 - One of the newer places on my calendar... Clarksburg is a very nice town a little off the beaten path in Millstone Township. The Clarksbug Inn is a warm and friendly place with a rustic feel... and a large place at that, with several dining rooms, a large bar area, lots of TV's in the tavern, and even a package goods store. They have a huge deck out back for entertainment, partying, and even volley ball. A family place at diner time, and a friendly and lively young crowd into the evening and late hours. Motorcycle friendly, and an overall nice place with wonderful people. Come and check it out. (Thanks Michelle, for being my event coordinator this night!)

Cats-Cade 2006 - Goldwing Motorcycle Rally - This was truly a stellar 4 days! There are 370 pictures in this gallery, so grab your favorite drink, maybe even a sandwich, and pull up a chair. This was a gathering of people... first class people, from all over the country, and even the United Kingdom and Canada were representing. We all "met" and chat on a Goldwing message board which is an amazing resource of knowledge, not just about the motorcycles we ride, but just about anything you want to inquire about. The comradery and the friendships developed here are unsurpassed! This community has also gathered and donated large amounts of money for the Mabel Hall fund... the young daughter of one of our members who was born with cystic fibrosis.

The Alley - March 25, 2006 This was a super feel good night for me! I always loved playing this room, and I haven't been there for years. Thank you so very much to all who came out!

Thanks Pam for jamming on Sax with me, my good friend Rob for his classic vocals, Tommy Grasso made an appearance all the way from NYC and banged out a set with me... and Matt is still in the house banging on his tambourines! You go, Dude! Karen and Matt, always nice to see you, my friends! Angie... made the road warrior trip despite bad directions. It was worth it! And Dan The Murph Man behind the bar... good to see ya bro. You whip up a mean L.I. Iced Tea! I'm back at the Alley in September.

Moby Dicks - March 18, 2006 The fun never ends! Lot's of talent here tonight. Special debut of my ol' bud, Dean Fasano. Dean has a musical history that will blow your mind. Just Google his name and see what comes up. Thanks to Jim for sitting in with me... it's been a while Ob's (that's his nickname) and it felt good. Don't be such a stranger! Don pumped out some sweet harmonies on a handfull of classic tunes, and Christine came up and dazzled us with her pipes! She sang really good too! Moby's is a great home-town gig for me. Be sure to come by... it'll feel like home.

The Thirsty Moose - March 17, 2006 What a fun night! My brother Ken is in town and sang a tune or two with me. You'll be seeing more of him. Nice to see ya, Bro!.

If you haven't been here yet, you gotta check it out!

The Thirsty Moose - December, 2005. What a fun place this is. I've made so many new friends here. Excellent food, excellent drink, and excellent people. I'd like to extend a special thank you to Anthony and Kelly for your generosity, hospitality, and friendship. Also to all of the staff for always making me feel so comfortable, and for your friendship. And of course to my wonderful friends, Heather and Roy, for your warm friendship, your amazing spirit, your generosity, and for bringing in the international posse. South Africa, Brazil, United Kingdom all representing! You folks sure know how to party!

Some miscellaneous pictures from the summer of 2005.

June 24, 2005 - RailRoad Cafe Another fun filled evening out on the deck at the RR. See that handsome gentleman to the left sandwiched between those two beautiful ladies? That's my buddy Floyd.

Cats-cade Goldwing Riders Ralley, June 4, 5, 6, 2005. What an amazing weekend this was! These pictures are in chronological order from the morning a few of us met at my house to ride up, until the morning we broke camp and left. Total trip, just over 450 miles. My dad followed us up in my van with all my music equipment in it. Thanks Dad! He had more fun than he expected. We met alot of really nice people, made some new friends, rode some amazing twisties through some awesome scenery, made music, ate, drank, and partied like there's no tomorrow. I already plan on doing this again next year!

The Thirsty Moose. April 1, 2005. What a night! Man, this place is kicking more and more every time I'm there! I'd like to thank my wonderful friends from South Africa who come out week after week and really turn the night into a party. What a great bunch of folks! And thanks to Robbie Knievel for jumping in setting the place on fire! Robbie, son of the infamous Evel Knievel, is a legend in his own right. Check out his site: ( ) Robbie is here shooting a reality TV show about his life for A&E. Thanks for your friendship Robbie, and the kind gift you gave me. (and say hello to Deb for me, will ya?) I've got to thank the owners and employees of the Thirsty Moose too, for being so kind and generous. You make me feel very welcome there and I've made some really nice friends. If you haven't been there yet, check it out. GREAT food and an awesome beer collection! Thanks Lisa for taking the pictures.

4th of July, 2004 - an outdoor gig at a beautiful house where I was joined for the first time live by my best bud... Floyd Jr. He did a great job on guitar! Way to go, son! He's kicking ass on guitar and drums, and I'll have him singing in no time. I was also joined by my friends Maureen and Jill, who are wonderful people, and excellent performers. The three of us harmonize like we've been doing it our whole lives. They played with me for 4 hours + on this day, and I really enjoy playing with them. You can catch them around various clubs in New Jersey. Thanks ladies!

Another gig at Moby Dick's in Sewaren (Woodbridge) in Feb., 2004. An ol' navy buddie, my good friend Gene, drove up from Maryland just to sit in on bass on this one... and he sat through the whole thing! He also brought an upright bass that you'll see leaning against the wall in these photos. He actually has to stand up to play that one. This was the first time Gene and I jammed together in around 20 years! We had such a blast... you'll be seeing and hearing more of Gene in the future. Good to see ya shipmate!

While hanging out in Phoenix, Arizona, Bruce Hornsby played for about 150 of us at a private diner I attended. I assisted in setting up his stage, and I tried talking him into letting play a song with him, but he didn't go for it. For those of you who don't know who he is, well..."that's just the way it is... and some things will never change."
(Jan. 2004)

Santa was in the house over the holidays. (2003-2004) He dropped in, had some Christmas spirits with us, gave Weezer (my coolest ferret) some lovin', then we jammed in my studio til the wee hours. Santa kicks on drums!

At the New Jersey Museum of Boating at Johnson Brothers Boat Yard in Bay Head. September 6, 2003.
