Hello normal?

Roadmap, our latest production featuring Devyn Rush and Joe Goldberger:

Mask on, mask off……coming out of a plague or danger ahead? Making new friends during safer at home orders is different and for many, more difficult.

I found a new friend on nextdoor.com. Her name is Marylou Watkins. She posted a poem there that so resonated with me I felt compelled to write music for it.


We’ve been mandated to stop so many businesses in California due to stay home orders. My usual way of doing music, live for audiences is not allowed, gatherings not allowed……for now.

The mix and mingle that means so much to me has moved online. I see some wonderful folks in 2D. Some are people I have done things with in real life, some I only “meet” online. We can all be global this way.

I cannot stop doing music even when the work is gone.

This circumstance has given me a long awaited sabbatical. I hope I have used it well and will continue to use it well. I’ve been producing music, covers and originals that I publish at my YouTube channel. My band members & I coordinate and create music videos remotely.

Here are the results so far.

Big fun at the Hollywood Bowl

What a pleasure it was to play string arrangements by David Campbell and Oliver Kraus conducted by David Campbell.  We were at the sold out Hollywood Bowl with The Dave Matthews Band.   What a great evening it was participating as part of the string section.

Fly High in Fall

September holds excitement for me and my crew.  Please join us at Mixx in Pasadena this coming Thursday September 6, 2018 from 8-11 pm

The band will start things off followed by some special guests joining us later.LeslieBakerbass

Special notes about this event:  The area code is 626 not 625 like on the flyer.  Parking is a bit of a challenge, be forewarned. That’s the not so great news so to lighten that blow I give you a recent 1 minute composition of mine recorded at my studio in case you are trying to get somewhere in Downtown L.A.  The words come from the grandson of a Red Car Driver.

We used to have Red Cars in L.A. long ago.  Lucky you! The special event Thursday, it will include a live recording, is in Pasadena, not Downtown so not so hard to find.

I would love to see you there!
