Soul Sacrifice is a Tribute to the music of Carlos Santana and all his various bands over the years. Santana really provided one of the first and lasting musical marriages of modern pop stylings with roots folkloric style percussion and hand drumming. As such, the study and performance of this music has been invaluable.
Silver Cars plays Latin Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, and more, including some originals. Featuring Scott Martin-piano, Scott Parker Mast-congas, Braxton ‘BK’ Kahn-drumset, Tommy Van Den Berg-trombone, and Andrew Rose-bass. We also have a rotating guest spot for singers.
Cottonwood is an emerging Boulder band that plays folk and americana. In this band I play drumset. We play covers and originals, and a feature of the band are the sweet vocal harmonies, which I love.
Nokuthula are a Zimbabwe (Shona) style marimba-based group, that also incorporate mbira, bass, and guitar. I play a hybrid rig with this band, incorporating hand-drums with bass-kick-snare. This is soulful party music. We do educational shows for school kids as well as special events and clubs, festivals, etc.
Every now and then, I get to play with Los Lobos.
