Rearden Roark at Cubby Bear August 27, 2014

I’ll be playing piano with Rearden Roark at the Cubby Bear tonight.

It’s made up of talented musicians (Tom Predey, Matt Hines, Matt Christensen, and Dan Berdelle), and the originals are poetic, inspiring, and sound amazing.

Thank you to Hollywood Casino Joliet and Dario Radio for booking the jazz duo in the VIP room for New Years Eve 2013 two years in a row!

The staff is incredible and we had a blast.


I wrote a PHP application for the audio section of my site,, to look at a directory tree, find the mp3s, get their mp3 tags, and write all the info down in a database. Then, the PHP uses the SQL database to sort based on a given criterian and display the results on a webpage dynamically.
