Thelonious Monk Institute Audition and a new band!
I'm very excited to be submitting an application for the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz! I will be recording my audition materials in just a week! I'm nervous but optimistic. Wish me luck!
In other news, I have formed a new band, Mike Moynihan Group. This is an incredibly enjoyable project for me because it features all my latest original compositions! We will be performing our debut show at Solar Culture ( 31 E Toole Ave, Tucson, AZ 85701) on December 8th from 8pm-10pm. Follow the link below to get your tickets today!

In other news, I had a great time jamming with Roxy Coss, Lucas Pino, and the Pete Swan Quartet last night at Pastiche! So killing!

For the past few weeks I've been hard at work on the most exhilarating project of my life, my debut album. This project has already presented me with many challenges, which I am keen to conquer.
Actually it's really not that hard, it's mainly just making a bunch of phone calls and sending emails and following up and yada yada yada. Still, it's really fun and it feels like a challenge, which makes me feel like I'm doing something important.
Details about the record:
Personnel- Jack Wood (bass), Tim Rachbach (drums), and Matt Mitchell (guitar), yours truly (saxophone)
Repertoire- Eight of my original compositions
Date- Recording sometime in mid June, shooting for a release in July or August
I'm going to be doing some type of crowdfunding campaign for the record very soon, so stay tuned for updates and opportunities to contribute!
