It's Been a While! 

Greetings everyone and I hope 2019 is going well.  Hard to believe it's going to be March in a couple of weeks. The days, weeks, months fly by.  And looking at the last date I posted some "News", the years fly by too!

Check out my Blog! 

Hey everyone,

 

Just a quick note to say that I've started updating my blog on a regular basis. Rather than posting news here in the News section, I've decided that it would be better to bring everyone up to date with blog postings. It's actually better for me to promote that way and the blogs also provide an opportunity for comments which are always welcome.

Thanks and I hope things are going well all around.

Yours,

JV

Ragtime Rabbit 

OK, so I'm a sucker for a fuzzy little bunny. I've had a few in my life and and the most recent was given the name Mozart by my daughter Nina.  To be honest, at first I wasn't crazy about the name but, like all names, it eventually becomes the person, or band, or rabbit as the case may be.   As you can see by the photo, Mozart was pretty damn cute (and quite an athlete). He would actually lick your face with that wonderful sand-papery tongue of his. He lived outside in a split level rabbit condo with a…

What's Up? 

Well, glad you asked!  Random Emotion had a nice run but I'm off to hopefully bigger and better things in 2011.  The first shot was the release of the song Locked Out and Loaded which you can preview by clicking a link on my home page. I'm told the song fits in the Outlaw Country category  (one of my favorite stations on Sirius/XM radio btw - check it out) which makes me happy.  It features Marty Richards on drums, Tom West on piano, Kevin Barry on guitars, Richard Gates on bass and Jim Fitting on harp. The…

Hey Everyone,

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying spring!

The April issue of Metronome magazine is now available at many music stores like Newbury Comics, Guitar Center and elsewhere.

Thanks to Metronome editor Brian Owens for putting all that together and for his interest in my music. He and his staff have published Metronome out of their…

CD Release 

Hey Everyone, Well, it's been a while in the making but I am proud to annouce the actual release of my first, full length album Random Emotion. It's 13 songs that I have written and recorded (and in some cases re-recorded) over the past 10 years or so. I'll be doing some gigs to promote the record and all pertinent info will be avialable on this site. I'm looking forward to performing the music from the CD as well as some choice covers at a club near you very soon so stay tuned! Jerry
