This summer I’ve been working on music staff for the Performance team at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires. We put on a killer Independence Day concert and it was broadcast on the local radio station here. You can hear me on kit and backup vocals for the nearly two-hour concert.
It’s Take Your Kid to Work Day! And Spotify’s New York offices called up the Lemons to come kick out the jams!
The Fuzzy Lemons are back in the studio laying down a few tracks. Get ready for some hit singles you can listen to with your kids! Or maybe we’ll get really crazy and release an album, you never know… View this post on Instagram Playin’ around with new tunes in the studio!

Elizabeth Chan, the Queen of Christmas, had me join her at a special performance at the Pennsy Theatre at Madison Square Garden. What a pleasure to accompany her with guitar monster John Benthal. Plus I got to strap jingle bells to my leg! View this post on Instagram This might be the closest I comeContinue reading “LITE FM & iHeartRadio”

First, it’s acoustic. No pesky amplifiers or extension chords, volume knobs or earplugs and it sounds great inContinue reading “Kaylor and the Tin Cans”
I just finished up a really fun gig with the Herreras down in Delaware. Besides the perpetual energy of the Herreras’ music, we were poolside and it was a lovely sunny day. So sunny, that I decided my cymbal was put to better use as a shade than an instrument. Little known fact: the sunContinue reading “Dela-where?”
2,680 days. That’s how long my practice streak had lasted when I ended it this past weekend. Since January 26, 2010 I have practiced drums for at least five minutes a day, every day. That’s more than 7 years straight. Over the past decade I have practiced more days than I have showered or brushedContinue reading “The Streak”

Wow~! What a pleasure it was to play in this gutted gothic church. Talk about natural reverb! James was singing his heart out, Swinny was laying the groove and Ty wailing on the guitar for this Americana extravaganza. Plus I got to really break in the new GMS drums….HoooWee that 24 kicks!! I’m totally honoredContinue reading “James Calleo CD Release”
