Producer of “The Gumbo Family Holiday Album” 14-song Cd featuring 25 different musicians/singers, including Kim Yarbrough, Kristen Toedtman, Inga Swearingen, Benjamin R., and The Modeens. Proceeds benefit Students Run LA.

“From the very first song on, it’s readily apparent this is genre busting stuff. The “Sugar Plum Fairy” kicks off the album, which itself is a bit more than bold, as how many rockers really cover Tchaikovsky? But when they add that New Orleans Second Line that’s when it becomes the kind of carol I’d go shopping on Black Friday to hear.” – The Argonaut

Producer of “Funky Freedom” 13-song CD from The Gumbo Brothers, with special guests Kim Yarbrough, Gia Ciambotti, Matt DeMerritt, Dave Ralicke, and Chris Bautista.

“This collection of swampy funk is deep in the pocket, right where it should be. The grooves are thick, the vocals are sparse and always add texture to the interplay between the musicians, and the vibes never get bogged down…The Gumbo Brothers say they’re ‘going to hit you with some ass-shakin’ funk!’ They got that right. Prepare yourself.” – Cdbaby

“The jazz is smooth, the vocals are gritty, the funk is thick and syrupy. If you can’t dance to this album, you just can’t dance.” – buddyhollywood.com

Producer of “On Fire” 9-song Mardi Gras CD from The Gumbo Brothers, with special guests Kim Yarbrough, Gia Ciambotti, Matt DeMerritt, Dave Ralicke and Vinnie Caggiano.

“Hailing from Venice Beach, the New Orleans-style quartet makes the kind of saxy, wah-wah, keyboard-driven funk that was popular before most of today’s music buyers were born, but it doesn’t sound outdated. It’s dance music, sho’ ‘nuff, and the band’s new album never slows down” – Berkeley Place
