This is exactly why you should always twirl once in front of the mirror before leaving the house…


Just think how many people she made smile throughout the day!

The Chosen Axe #2

May 6, 2009

I was on Ebay the other day and was looking at some Basses…I kind of wanted a Fender 4 – String P-Bass that was just straight rock-in-roll, and something that would go good with my Fender 5-String Marcus Miller Jazz Bass…I wanted a bass that was really “punchy” and tight… I really like weird pickguards, so the Fender 4-String Sting P-Bass really stuck out to me…


I saw a sting p-bass that was ending like at 3 a.m. (Eastern Time) because it was a west coast auction…so I was like, “what the heck I’ll put a bid in and go to sleep”…I knew I wasn’t gonna get it because I only bid $500 and these basses easily go for $800 – $1000 used…I woke up the next morning and found out that I had won the bass for $405 + $50 shipping!!!…Crazy!!!…Anyway I love the bass, and I just recently got it setup (plays amazing) and I also put a pickup cover on it along with the matching ash tray


Ted Haggard and Vests

This past weekend Ted Haggard came to Elevation…Pastor Steven interviewed him and his wife…It was life changing!!!…Here’s a link to see the whole interview –

So…Sunday morning I show up at Providence to load in at 5:45 a.m….I walk in and set my stuff down and run to the bathroom…Out walks Wade Joye (One of the three Elevation worship leaders)…with the exact outfit I was wearing!!!…White V-Necks, Grey Vests, and Dark Blue Jeans…We looked at each other and said, “Oh buddy” Haha…What a weird feeling!!!…I couldn’t take it too long, so I went and changed after run through Hahaha…Another funny thing is that Seth Worley (Guitar Player) and Matt Kelly (Singer) also had vests on Hahaha!!!…Vests have taken over the world!!!


The Great YouTube

So I graduated college last May and figuring out what to do after college is kind of really awkward…I mean…If you not getting married like everyone else, and don’t what to get a full time job yet… What do you do?!!!


All of my life I’ve  had to do something or try to finish something…In middle school you look forward to high school, in high school you look forward to college…but after college?…I quess you’re supposed to look forward to whatever you want to do in life…but that ‘s the scary part – especially if  you don’t know what it is you want to do?… Haha!!! (But Seriously)

Easter at Elevation was amazing!!! I was blown away…I played at the Providence Campus with Chris Brown which had 5 services…The Saturday night service had about 1,200 people and they had to turn tons of  people away (Crazy!!!)…The other 4 Sunday services where just as powerful…After all the services were done…7899 people attended Elevation, 740 of them gave their lives to Jesus!


Here’s the opening video


I’ve always been a big fan of Korg products and used to have an old Korg N364 that I loved…Korg products are very user friendly and there patches are very easy to tweek…so I went with the classic Korg Triton…Its got great pads, organs and rhodes…the only complaint I have is that the piano sounds aren’t “bad”, but aren’t the greatest.



Recently I pick up a Alesis Micron which I’ve been really happy with…It’s a really cool little synth that packs a big punch… The coolest option to the Micron is the tap tempo feature… you can easily sync beats and arpeggio to a song






1) Coldplay – Viva la Vida


2) Mutemath – Flesh and Bones


3) Kings of Leon – Only by the night


4) 1969 – Maya
