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.
This show is gonna be great!
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’m performing some authentic Mexican music this weekend. Here’s one of the songs we are doing.
I wrote a PHP application for the audio section of my site, http://sandovaljose.com/audio.php, 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.
Merry Christmas! One of Mom’s favorite Christmas songs, Silent Night on YouTube and sandovaljose.com. Words by Joseph Mohr, Translated by John F. Young, Music by Franz X. Gruber. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFi9UfW3_p8&list=PL0484C1555CA2E2B9
I recorded one of my favorite Christmas songs, “The Christmas Song,” by Mel Torme & Bob Wells. You can hear my solo piano version and download it for free on my website, sandovaljose.com.
