The Upper Strata will play the Vino 100 on Cave Creek Dec. 21 The grand opening party for Muddobber Phoenix Dec. 22
and the Mile High Jerome on the 28th. Hope to see you out there are one of those shows.

We rounded out the year with nearly 30 shows including a show in Solothurn Switzerland, several in Jerome Arizona, three in Bisbee, shows in Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix, Mesa, and two in Tampa, Florida.
New promo clip featuring a few new songs still being produced, parts of all our video clips, and some live footage from the Martini Ranch and Gate 68 Solothurn Switzerland.…

Happy holidays to all and best of luck in the new year!

Just back from the Jerry and Steve show Ybor City Tampa Florida. I had one painting in that show.
Also had a chance to play music at the New World Brewery and at the closing of the art exhibit.
Somewhere in there I made it out to the beach visited family and had a hand rolled cigar and good cuban coffee
(sipping some right now in fact) and cooking. It was a great little trip over all.

A new artsy video clip The Upper Strata produced from over 500 photos taken all around
Arizona. Why is a song called Denver Song featuring lots of pics of Arizona you ask. Well its about leaving Denver and starting over in Phoenix and the sad moment of knowing it was hopeless in Denver. Anyhow hope you like.

Here I am following the making of an abstract guitar combining my interest in music and fine art.

Hope you like.
