I had played with Slim Richey and the Jitterbug Vipers since 2009 till this summer 2015, featuring Sarah Sharp. This band won the best jazz band at Austin Chronicle Music Award 2013-14. Actually Slim Richey won the best electric guitarist, Francie Meaux Jeaux won the best bassist, I won the best drummer, and Sarah Sharp got listed in top #6 for CD producing, song writing, female vocal, many more .... We got listed in top 6 for 12 categories!
We toured around Oregon/Seattle, NY, LA, UK, and Music Festival at Albenga Italy. Our latest/last CD Phoebe's Dream had been on over 90 radio stations and we were featured on the NPR show called Michael Feinstein's Song Travels on January 2014, then replayed nationwide in spring 2015, too.
