Go buy Michele's latest CD on iTunes. I recorded, mixed and produced it!

Have You Met Mister Jones with the Michele Thomas Quartet
A few years ago Cast Iron Skillet did a tribute to the late, great Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. It was a great joy to learn all these tunes & Michele knocked it out of the park.
Playing the Elaine Elias inspired arrangement of A Ra with the Michele Thomas Quintet. Michele is also nice enough to give me solo space on this one...and I probably took more than I should have;)
Not sure why this video looks like it was shot in 1993, but it's a somewhat witty drum solo over one of my favorite Peanuts Christmas classics!
My favorite singer-so much so that I married her. See all of her cool stuff, and you can even buy some tracks from her last record. I'm playing on those, by the way.
I started working with Jeannie about 5 years ago and continue to enjoy my time with her. Is she a singer? Trumpeter? songwriter?...yes!
I also had the great pleasure of drumming on her recent "Words & Music" project. So much fun to work with all the great vocalists of Chicago!
I've been playing with Ari's organ trio for a couple of years now. He writes great tunes. Check out his music, and buy a CD (I'm on his last one, but you can buy 'em all if you want). Also, I play with him just about once a week these days. Check out my itinerary and come hear us.
Jeff approached me quite a few years ago to be a part of this wonderful "little" big band playing the music of Marty Paich & Mel Torme. 2 recordings, many gigs and perhaps $27 dollars later...we're still at it. All kidding, I love playing in this band.
Our little video on Michele's latest record Messenger. It looks so old, like cable access or something. But it's still some work that Michele and I are very proud of, and you get see a young Bob Lovecchio!
An older promo video for Michele's band. Were we ever so young?
