New “Rock Collection” album!

November 1st, 2012  

Mk joined Greg Anton (Zero), Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz (ALO) and Paul Lamb as “The Rock Collection” at the Oregon Country Fair in 2011 where this incredible live album was performed.  NOW ON ITunes!!! Get it now… here’s a review: “These accomplished live performers have an outstanding musical chemistry on stage, interweaving vocal harmonies, double guitar work and extended improvisation; their original songs include new Robert Hunter lyrics. The band takes an audience on a musical journey from emotive blues to delicate ballads to blow-the-roof-off rock and roll.”




October 24th, 2012  

In the spirit of MK’s hometown GIANTS being in the World Series…. we thought everyone might enjoy this record (45!) MK was on in 1989.  Check out the lyrics.  and GO GIANTS!!!!
