Our new trio CD, "June Balloon," is here!!!

Click the link above to check out "June Balloon."  My good friends Tom Lockwood and Andy Szumowski joined me at Cornerstone Univeristy Studios to lay down these tracks last May and June.  My thanks to them for bringing my tunes to life so marvelously.  In two brief sessions we recorded these numbers and were able to use mostly first and second takes.  It's such an honor and pleasure to work with musicians of this caliber.  I really hope you'll check it out.  Thanks also to our enginers, Randy Miller and Jacob Maguire.  If you want to learn more about Cornerstone University Studios, surf over to

So, What Else is New?

It's been a busy time lately.  Thanks for keeping the live music scene so vibrant here in West Michigan.
I hope to see you at the Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra's regular gig: Founders Brewery the first Sunday of every month, 5:30pm - 7:30pm.  Lots of other gigs, too.  Please click the "gigs" link on at the top left of this page.
In addition to the CDs mentioned above, keep an eye out for the most recent GRJO CD, "Swingin' with Edye Evans-Hyde."
Also, the new Steve Hilger Band CD, "The River," is on the shelves.  The disc sounds fantastic!  Listen for it on WLAV and WYCE.
