Clouds part at Malaparte.

I love this photo. It was taken on August 13th on the sixth floor terrace at Malaparte (Oliver & Bonacini). This particular day served up just about every slice of weather imaginable short of snow. Rain pummeled sideways through the sides of the tent, inching precariously towards all my gear. Hot sun would blaze through …

Public show Thu. Aug. 25th.

There’s a charm in seeing things where you don’t expect them. Normally, you’d hear sirens if you were driving through a vineyard in Niagara. I was performing at Cave Springs Vineyard for a wedding ceremony on Sunday, and strangely enough, this was where I parked. It was a cool little spot just around the bend …

Hammer of the Gods – Berkeley Church.

It’s hard not to smile when you play a guitar in the Berkeley Church (Toronto, ON). I was lucky enough to perform here for a second time in July of this year. Knowing what was in store, I arrived early and took the liberty of simply enjoying the space for an hour. Music floats in …

Public show Thu. Jul. 14th.

June was a busy month. About as Canadian as it gets with respect to locations and unique venues. I performed at a wedding at the Canadian Canoe Museum (Peterborough, ON), followed by a number of events up in Muskoka — including the Muskoka Bay Club (Gravenhurst, ON) and Windermere House (Windermere, ON). I also had …

April showers.

April was an uncharacteristically busy month that saw three wedding performances. It was a pleasure to return to Vintage Hotels’ Pillar and Post (Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON), as well as the Inn on the Twenty (Jordan, ON). I also performed for my first time at the Glenerin Inn (Mississauga, ON). Working at weddings and private events affords …

For some time now, I’ve wanted to build a library of performance recordings that truly reflect the nature of my work. Since my last instrumental guitar recording, I have performed at hundreds of weddings and corporate events. Working with so many …

Mother’s Day performance this Sunday May 8, 2016 @ Viamede Resort. I’m looking forward to another Mother’s Day performance at Viamede Resort this Sunday (Stoney Lake, ON). I’ve been doing this show for a number of years now, and it’s great to see so many familiar faces. For me, it’s always the unofficial start to …

Niagara bound.

Niagara bound.

It has been an early start for weddings this year. Normally, April is occupied mostly by taxes and other administrative work. Thankfully, though, this year has been decidedly different. Last weekend saw a couple of great shows. Saturday I performed for a wedding at Vintage Hotels’ Pillar & Post (Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON). I’ve worked here a …

Wedding guitar testimonials – Family ties.

Adriana – Mother of the brides. We had the opportunity to hear Jake play at Samantha’s wedding (our youngest daughter) last June, 2014. I could hear him playing as we arrived home from the hair dressing appointment and it was heavenly music–so much so that our pet Border Collie Abigail was sitting beside him so …

Wedding guitar testimonial – Windermere House.

Colin & Sasha We had Jake perform at our wedding in September 2015 at Windermere House in Muskoka. The weekend went off without a hitch, and one of the most memorable parts was the amazing set that Jake played for our ceremony and cocktail reception. His music is just terrific, a little bit of something …
