Well, hello, there.  

Just wanted to let you know that Winthorpe, the trio of your feverish rock and roll dreams, will be playing once again at Arlene's Grocery this THURSDAY, at 11pm.

Hope you can make it and see us in person as we continue to work on new material and figure out how we're going to make a record of all these crazy songs.

This will be the last time to see us for several months as I will be doing some traveling in January.  

We had a great turnout in September for our first show, and we want to keep building the excitement.  Check out the links below for some of the recordings from that show.

I am pleased to announce the debut performance of my current musical project - Winthorpe!

We will be performing a week from today, 8:00 PM Wednesday, September 12th, at Arlene's Grocery.  Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.

Winthorpe is a trio and I will be singing and playing guitar.  I have written most of the songs, some of which are fan favorites of the Kemp songbook including Working for Gruber, Evil, See No Evil, and others that haven't been played for the public since the demise of Chewy Blue.


Joe Mrnarevic will be playing drums.  We have been playing music together since 2006 when we formed Chewy Blue, and we recorded the Electric Bretheren EP together, which you can listen to or download for FREE here:  We will be performing I Been Up and See No Evil from this record on the 12th.


We have added Brian DiFeo to our lineup on bass, and he will be singing a few of his songs as well.  Brian is a great bass player and a bit of a celebrity on Instagram as Bridif.  All three of us share a common love for The Band, Traffic, Neil Young, The Police, and the Grateful Dead, and we have infused our influences into a really original sound that seems to come naturally to us when we play.

We have been rehearsing regularly since March, so it is with great pleasure and excitement that we will be performing for the public.  Spread the word, and hope to see you there.
