Look to your left.  I've added some new dates!

My DSLR series has new dates for 3 Wednesdays- October 14, 21 and 28.  If you have a DLSR camera that you don't know how to use… this class is for you!

Then I have a Happy Hour acoustic performance at Bella Vista Caffe and Social Club across from UCSD July 10.  I'm sure that the weather will be beautiful, so i'll be out on the patio performing.  Enjoy the weather and a glass of wine or cold beer after work.



My buddy Dave sent me these pictures of us from Bella Vista Caffe post show.  We talked about Sleestacks (sp?) and other random 80's greats.

I have just added a show at Tio Chino!  I'll be playing at this restaurant and bar June 17 from 7:30-9:30pm.  At the moment I'm excited about it because I love their logo!  Daruma!Tio Chino

In particular, I can vouch for Wowow Waffles, Green Flash Brewery and Ballast Point as vendors that I enjoy thoroughly and will be partaking in.  See you there.

My show tonight at Bella Vista Social Club and Caffe will still be going down despite the rain.  I often play the patio area, but on days like these, I will play indoors.  I'll be playing from 5:30-7:30pm.  Catherine Nguyen will be joining me for a few songs.  Happy Hour goes on until 7pm.


I'll be playing this art opening at 7pm.  Art and Music!

I owe about 25 drawings to my greatest contributors to the Kickstarter campaign for my latest album- "Handmade".  I'm finished with about 7 of them.  hahaha!  BUT!  The deadline for me to complete them is February 7th.  So it will be done and it's my determination that they will be done well.  

In fact, originally it was my intention to do quick drawings and send them out right away... but then as I started working on them, I couldn't stop.  I was spending way more time than I should have to complete them.  I kept seeing things I wanted to do.

Please come to my art show February 7th at the Glashaus to see them all together before I send them off to their rightful owners.  Details are in Calendar of this webpage.  

Please check out my new video of live clips.  It's an overview of what I do live at my shows:


Here is a song/ video by Crunchy Sandwich artist, great friend and my frequent collaborator Joseph Naval.  Remember when JNav used to be a regular performer at my shows?  Here's a chance to hear him rap and father his children!

March 13th, Terry Matsuoka and the Raucous Bunch will be playing at the House of Blues.  The doors open at 6:30pm.  Tickets at the door are only $5.  But if you get in contact with me, we'll find a way to get free tickets to you (or the price of postage and handling).  

Bully Blinders invited me to rap with them at the end of their set! I'm excited and it should be a lot of fun. 

They are playing right after us- Terry Matsuoka and the Raucous Bunch.  My band goes on at 7:40. They go on at 8:20.  Click on the event listed on the left for the full schedule of all of the bands.
