NEWS:

Hi All,

Hope all's well with you and yours. Just wanted to send you a note and let you know about some upcoming shows and such....

First up - 11.13.15 I'll be playing with The Buffalo Band trio at the Firehouse Space. Doors are at 8, we hit around 830. Below is a brief description so you know what you are getting into. There will be free beer and wine. This has been the most rewarding project I've worked on, inspired by an incredible story I first heard on the Podcast 99% Invisible, and my friendship with my co-writers Chris Bonner and Zack Eldridge. Please come support some truly new and original music. 

The Buffalo Band plays a sonic telling of the story of The Ghost Army, a United States Army deception unit during World War II. This 1,100-man group was given a unique mission: to impersonate U.S. Army units in order to deceive the enemy. They put on a “traveling road show” utilizing inflatable tanks, sound trucks, and fake radio transmissions. An incredible story told through a completely new and original suite of music by Buffalo Band Trio.

In case you missed it, I played yesterday on the Today Show with Epic ArtistAudiodamn! Kathy Lee was loving it. Here's a link. The Municipal Horns -  Rick Parker, Joe Ancowitz and myself had an awesome time. More shows with Audiodamn! coming up...

Next Saturday, November 21st I'll be playing with The Saturday Night Live Band. Tune in live at 1130pm to see Matthew Mcconaughey host.  I'll be smiling at you from inside your TV. 

Monday the 23nd I'm with Jim keller at Rockwood Music Hall. A true cavalcade of stars here with...Keyboards - Glenn Patscha, Bass - Adam Minkoff, Drums - Yuval Lion, Guitar - Ryan Scott
and the SPRING BISQUIT HORNS - myself, Dan Brantigan, Stefan Zeniuk, and Rick Parker.

And next Thursday the 19th through the 22nd, GT Recording will at the Jazz Standard tracking the Dave Douglas Quintet. Check out the new Geoff & Tyler website here if you haven't already.

What else? In case you didn't know, the Polka Brothers have a new record out! Arguably, the greatest album cover of all time...in the polka genre. Check it here.Why not buy it? And of course, you can still see us play every Tuesday and Wednesday night at Hofbrau Bierhaus NYC.

Enough already? Oh...not enough? Ok - one more thing then - here's the record Iengineered and produced featuring Dave Douglas, Shigeto, Mark Guiliana, and Jonathan Maron. Pretty proud of my work on this project and it's been a really fun band to tour with. Come see us soon...

Thank you for all your support. I hope to see you out there!
