  • Mi5/UMG Showcase Night

  • With Ted Mason of Modern English
  • As an A & R, I am super pleased to be organizing the upcoming Mi5 Recordings/Universal Music Group Showcase Night at The Stephen Talkhouse. Performers will have the chance to play right in front of (and jam with) music industry executives.  President Ted Mason, former guitarist, singer, co-writer/producer, and manager for the British rock band Modern English, will host the event along with me, and after starting out with some Modern English hits and originals, we'll open the night up for all the very talented musicians in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York City, and friends of the Stephen Talkhouse (a.k.a. “y’all”) to show their best material, and we'll all be jamming out with the House Band, with Klyph Black, Joe Delia, Sean Rafferty and Mike Mazzaraco.  Performers, please stay in touch and contact me for more details when you get a chance so that we can organize everyone's time together that day. There is more information on the Facebook event page too.

  • The Joubert Singers at Polymanga 2018

  • Polymanga is a yearly Swiss convention about Japanese culture, mangas, anime, and video games.  Polymanga 2018 offers four days of non-stop entertainment with lots of guests, live concerts, shows, projections, tournaments and shopping.  Japan has never been so close!

    As part of it, The Joubert Singers, with which I have been a tenor since 2017, will perform anime and American television music themes: that means singing in exotic languages like Japanese and Swahili!  Check out the tour packages on Polymanga’s websites.

  • What Should Be the Fear

  • One-man theater play by Ralf Precious Gorgeous.
  • In 2012 Ralf Jean-Pierre rode his bicycle 4000 miles across the US performing one-man Shakespeare on the street. Why? Because he was afraid. This play both culminates and tells the story of that trip.

    Directed by Ralf Jean Pierre and Jolie Tang.
    Starring Ralf Jean-Pierre.
    Music Director Omar Haddad.
    Produced by Brooklyn Wildlife.
