    I'm excited to announce that we'll be
    performing my composition A Centering Peace
    at Unity of New York this Sunday, March 19th at
    11AM. I've asked my dear friend and colleague
    Marieann Meringolo to sing it, and I get to play
    it with my musical brothers Ray Naccari, Ayodele
    Maakheru and Clyde Bullard. I wrote the song in
    2014 to commemorate the 50th anniversary-in-
    the-priesthood and 75th birthday of a dear
    friend and a towering figure in my life, Fr
    Edward Straub. I'm proud to bring it to Unity
    because many of the spiritual ideas expressed in
    the lyrics incubated there through the course of
    my 15 years playing drums for these awesome
    people. Unity holds their Sunday celebrations at
    Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway, New York, NY

    The OKB Trio is hoping to release their as yet
    untitled debut CD soon.  You can now preview
    some tracks on the OKB Trio page to whet your
    appetite.  We were honored to lay down the
    first tracks ever recorded at Chris Benham's
    brand new studio, Big Orange Sheep!  We were
    very excited to bask in the warmth of the
    atmosphere created by our dear friends Chris
    and Kevin Thomas and we look forward to
    sharing the music with you in the near future.
