With a bright, fun, and groovy feel, Postponed Parade is the celebration we need! Ryan Burns’ masterful composition and the stellar deliveries that he and his allies have captured and assembled provide a much needed reprieve from the cloying atmosphere of isolation, and the jazzy sensibilities that permeate Postponed Parade make it a one-of-a-kind sonic experience – just in time for the summer holiday! – reviewer Jon Wright

Recently played a MusicCares benefit at the Showbox. This picture was in the Seattle Times. Mike McCready was presented the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award. I got to perform with Nancy Wilson (Heart), Duff MacKagan (G & R), and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), along with the bands Flight to Mars and Shadow.
I feel honored to play with Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Walking Papers) at his record label Sunyata’s “2nd Annual Showcase Of Bands & Ayron Jones Album Release.” Tickets can be found on the Facebook Event Page. I hope as many friends and family can make it as possible. We will be touring and recording this fall as Barrett Martin Group. The group includes heavyweights Skerik, Andy Coe, and Evan Flory-Barnes.
I recently had the pleasure of sitting in at Mike McCready’s 50th Birthday at The Neptune Theater. Cheap Trick opened the night with an incredible performance. Will jam with those pictured here May 20 and 21 for the annual Flight To Mars fundraiser at The Showbox (Market). See my SHOWS page for links to this and other upcoming gigs…
