...regretfully, after 3 years of performing every Friday night in the lounge at the William Douglas Steakhouse in Cherry Hill, NJ, the venue has closed its doors & is sadly no longer open for business

Restaurant L2, where I was fortunate enough to hold a gig on Thursday nights for 13 years, suffered a similar fate and is also no longer in business

THANK YOU to all who came out to support & enjoy live music at these venues! Hoping to see you soon .
