MY ACT                                    
COFFEEHOUSES/CONCERTS
I play guitar, harmonica and sing, performing funny,
up-tempo original songs with short comedy bits in
between and lots of audience participation.

Usually, I toss in a few covers and some serious songs.
Let me know what works best with your audience. Either
way, the songs are totally clean, suitable for all ages.

Trust me, it's a fun, interactive show.

KNOCK ON WOOD, acoustic folk-rock duo
For most concerts, I'm joined by a fiddle player/vocalist.

FEE                                                   
My rates are negotiable. Let's talk.

HOW FAR WILL I TRAVEL?                                                                
I live in the Boston area and will travel an hour and a half in any direction (except East, of course;
my amphibious vehicle is in the repair shop). I don't usually venture out of New England but make
me an offer I can't refuse, and I might just show up.

HOW'S THIS FOR OPENERS?
I have opened for the following national acts:






SOUND SYSTEM                                                                                       
I have a professional sound system that will accommodate any size room as well as outdoor
concerts.

PUBLICITY                                                                                                  
I'll help you publicize the event by contacting newspapers, magazines, radio stations and my
ever-expanding mailing list. I'll also provide photos and color posters. Just let me know what you
need.

I'M SEMI-FAMOUS                                                                                    
My songs have been aired on radio stations all over the country, including 92.5 The River and
WUMB as well as the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show, Midnight Special and National Public
Radio. Click
here for a partial list. You mighty also want to check out my press clippings.

WHERE HAVE I PLAYED?                                                                   
Here's a
list. You might actually recognize a few of these places.

even better. For music samples and video of the Newman-Damsky duo, click
