Here is some Behind The Scenes footage of the McTuff “3 Big Organs” show at The Tractor Tavern on Wednesday, March 14th. The show, featuring Ty Ballie, Ron Weinstein and of course Joe Doria on organ was absolutely AWESOME! If you weren’t able to attend, you really missed out on a very special show that certainly should be featured as one of the top shows of 2012 in Earshot Magazine’s yearly “Golden Ear Awards” for “2011 NW Concert of the Year”. It was THAT good.
I am really excited to be included in a special THREE TENORS performance at The Royal Lounge in Olympia, WA. I will be performing with saxophone heavyweights Alexey Nikolaev and Jim Pribbenow. This concert was put together by Olympia trombonist Richard Lopez (who will hopefully be sitting in) and will promise to be a very exciting and burning show. I am just hoping I can keep up with badasses like Alexey and Jim. They are both SCARY good! The show starts at 8:00pm at the Royal Lounge (Address: 311 Capitol Way North. Venue phone: 360-705-0760).

McTuff will be making its debut performance at the The Royal Lounge in Olympia on Thursday, March 1st! Hammond organist, Joe Doria brings together some of the areas finest with “McTuff”!
Joe Doria, Andy Coe, Cliff Colon, and Tarik Abouzied (some of the best from the NW music scene) come together to create a powerful and jaw-dropping trio like you’ve never heard where no musical stone gets unturned. A mix of great musicianship, songwriting, improvisation, and an openess to a myriad of style and genre of music, McTuff is a movin’ and groovin’ adventure that you will not soon forget. A very different take on the typical organ-based band.
After 10+ years, I have finally brought back my personal website to advertise my musical adventures on the internet! I am planning on actively updating this website with news, performances, articles, photos, videos and more. I hope that you enjoy following along with all of the musical endeavors that I will be taking part of moving forward in 2012. I have really been enjoying the type of music I have been performing lately, namely the recent addition into the power Hammond B-3 Organ group, McTuff. Outside of that outstanding quartet of some of the finest musicians I have had the pleasure to perform with, I am still regularly playing as a side man with a variety of different bands. I look forward to sharing more of my musical life with all of you! Take care.
