Disney Hall - Los Angeles performances

We recently performed at the beautiful Disney Hall for a few "high end" corporate parties. My band was invited to play for both IBM and for The Neil Bogart Foundation's annual fundraiser for T.J. Martell Foundation.  Both events were a huge success. 

Amia Dane, Lori Barth & Terry Wollman - Songwriting Team

Just released, Amia Dane's debut CD entitled "Have Mercy" has a new song we wrote called "Waiting." It is a cool vibey vocal tune written by me, Amia Dane, and Lori Barth. I also added guitars and keyboard parts. We will performing in June at the Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles to celebrate the release of Amia's new album.

Samantha Who on ABC

Just completed working on an episode of "Samantha Who" with Emmy nominated composer Jan Stevens. This episode featured some of Jan's musical influences from around the world... covering styles like Brazilian Bossa and French Gypsy music on the nylon string guitar, and even breaking out the Wah-wah pedal for some contemporary underscore. Check out Samantha Who and Scrubs to hear some great tv music!

Terry Wollman and Kevin Chokan playing the "Gibson L5" at the Gibson Artist Relations West Coast Showroom

My long time friend Kevin Chokan (Diana Ross, Jeffrey Osborne) and I had the opportunity to visit the Gibson Artist Relations showroom in Los Angeles. We got to sample some of their amazing vintage and new instruments... more fun that 2 kids in a candy store. The L5 guitar I'm playing is the same one I played on Desperate Housewives.
