Artwalk in Laguna has a lot of things happening the first Thursday of every month. This was the first time a band has ever jammed out front of The Sound Spectrum, an independent record store in biz since the late 60's.
With the Nick I and Billy Sherman of Common Sense in Montego Bay, Jamaica with some new friends.
I'll never forget this day. Stevie Wonder decided to sit in with the band I play keyboards for, Lesterfari and Kings Music at Simply Wholesome in L.A. Can't say it was a dream come true because I would never have been able to dream something crazy like this, especially with that crazy machine he's playing music off of here.

Tony Chin dubs you very much
Was blessed to be a fly on the wall while Earl Chinna Smith recorded his legendary guitar leads with his band mates from Soul Syndicate Band. First time they have recorded together in a few decades.

Christmas Day, 2015 with my Jamaican brother from another mother, Pablo. He gave me the name "Jah Mex" years ago in the kitchen after I mixed my Mexican food with his Jamaican food.
Ronnie Stepper, the humble bass legend and original member of Steel Pulse. We play in Lesterfari & Kings Music together.
With my mentor, Fully Fullwood.
Guitar legend from Kingston, Jamaica, Tony Chin, tracking at my little home studio.
At Reggae Rising about 6 years ago, playing keyboards for Marcia Griffiths. She's no joke when it comes to musicians playing her songs correctly. It was a joy to work with her on this gig.
Still to this day, Gentleman, reggae artist from Germany, is my favorite modern reggae artist. Thanks to my friend Justine Ketola, I got the opportunity to play keys in his music video for "Different Places"
On keys with Eek A Mouse in Sweden, 2003.
Tuff Lion came to Laguna Beach back in 2005 thanks to Dan Stafford. I got to meet and reason with Tuff this night.
