BalconyTV Hamburg

So, some years back, I had gotten some random invite to perform on what is called BalconyTV, a web-based video series that shoots live music on, yes, a balcony and, at the time, it was strictly in Dublin. Because I had spent so much time playing in Dublin after the turn of this century (isn't that fun to type?) and because I had registered for so many Irish music websites, some people assumed that I was based over there, so this wasn't the only interesting thing on offer to Irish players that was extended to me.

Anyway, I was really into it, but schedules and an ocean between eventually kept my performance on BalconyTV from happening.

Fast forward a few years and you'll see that BalconyTV has branded itself and has now included five other cities to its roster of performance venues. Dublin, Ireland has been joined by Poznan in Poland, Auckland in New Zealand, London in the UK, Nashville right here in the States and, of course, Hamburg, Germany, which is the point to this here blog. Since I couldn't get to do the Dublin Balcony, and since I was headed to Germany with a few days being spent in Hamburg, well, the rest is history.

Please feel free to check out this video of me playing the newer version of "The Dancer," which is slated to be on the next album.

Also, if you have a balcony in some city, somewhere in the world, and would like to host and film little performances, go right ahead and contact the BalconyTV people, they're real cool.

As usual, please send your comments to me at and, if you like the video, please comment and rate it as well!
