Welcome to my web site, and thank you for checking out my new stage play, THERE’S AN ALIEN IN MY SOUP! To clarify my schedule, this play is running concurrently with my playing music at Frederick’s in Bridgeton, St. Louis. My upcoming nights at Frederick’s for July are 27, 28 & 30th (Wed, Th, Sat). The next play performance is at The Kranzberg Arts Center, downtown St. Louis- next door to The Fox. Date: Friday July 29 2016 at 8pm. Thank you! Purchase tickets here. Later play dates to be announced.
CLICK HERE to see a few of the many characters in the stage play- oh and a singer too! TAAIMS is one man play with a dash of musical, reenacting the accounts of military personnel who could be called UFO first responders. Based on actual interviews and writings. NEXT and LAST date for a while is Friday July 29, 2016 at The Kranzberg Arts Center in downtown St. Louis. Don’t miss it!
Sneak-Preview/ World Premier! Do you believe in UFOs? This is a question that we all have pondered or perhaps have been asked. I may have not yet seen one directly, but I have studied accounts given by ordinary people who were in extraordinary situations, and I believe many of those accounts. Though I wrote the script for this one-man play, the stories I recreate happened. The characters are fascinating and I see them as heroes. Folks who came to terms with what they feel their fellow Americans or fellow Earthlings should know, forgoing their anonymity and old security oaths. Personally, it’s gratifying portraying these people and conveying their stories in the setting of live theater. With music and lyric along the way, I invite you to enjoy this show and ponder its question. . . Life’s stage is much bigger than we know! Tickets for The Kranzberg here!
Glad to announce my ongoing gig. (5- 8pm Wednesdays and Thursdays and 6- 9pm Fridays and Saturdays (some Saturdays 2:30- 5:30 afternoons!) But please note any upcoming off nights in the top paragraph above. (Or call Frederick’s at 314-733-5500).

When this place had just opened, I stopped in to talk music – and this led to a few weeks of my playing there- beginning in late September of 2015. Now here we are many months later with me playing there several times a week (along with other players such as Gary Presley, John Pyatt and others)! Their concept is an unpretentious yet contemp ambiance (with a nod to The Rat Pack). They serve aged steaks that don’t cost anywhere near the 50 buck-steaks of the fancy joints. They also have pizza and sandwiches. Located at 12490 St. Charles Rock Road Bridgeton, MO 63044. 314.733.5500. Fred and his partner Randy Waldman know that the customer comes first in this business. Come experience the personal hospitality and fun of Frederick’s! -Alan
