MC Shoehorn: Home

Shoehorn at work

 Update: April 23, 2017

Hey folks, music and love are the only thing keeping me sane in this crazy world!

Bringing light to darkness, it is a life-affirming force, and I hope that goes not just for me but all of you. If you can, purchase a CD or download, spread the word about my work to your networks and invite me to perform and teach in your city or town.

Thank you!


  Here is a clip, with the band, titled "Ice Cream and Bubbles" which is part of both of these projects:

"Fuego Azul (Silk Road)"  is a solo number from the DVD

"Dances with Instruments"

Entertainer MC Shoehorn- tap dancer and saxophonist (and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist) works as a solo performer, bandleader, soloist, accompanist and sideman.

MC Shoehorn makes music with his feet and dances with his horn, combining body rhythms and sophisticated forms and concepts into improvised entertainment. Specializing in saxophone and tap dance, he's a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer, utilizing wind and percussion instruments, playing classic and original songs, with an ear for music from around the world.

A World Jazz Extravaganza with MC Shoehorn! The tap dancer and saxophonist  presents his new CD "Wingin' It" and his new DVD "Dances with Instruments". The CD has a strong Afro-Cuban flavor, with a Japanese twist. The music is grooving hard with bassist Damian Erskine, drummer Martin Zarzar, percussionists Miguel Bernal and Scott Wardinsky, and pianist Gordon Lee . "Wingin" It" features guest vocalist Eileen Conley on two tracks and Kite Giedraitis, leader of African-style marimba band Fools in Paradise, plays mbira and bass kalimba on one selection. (Two tracks from the CD recording session are also part of the DVD as well.)
