Welcome

Hello There!

Thanks for visiting my website. For over 20 years I have played bass and touch guitar across the Northeast and East Coast with Uncle Sammy, Gordon Stone, Gary Backstrom, Dave Brunyak, The Rev Tor Band, Jo Henley, Interminable, Live at the Filmore, and many others.

There are several projects I'm currently involved in:

My band the Brian O'Connell Fellowship focuses on performing my original compositions, including many tunes from Uncle Sammy and my rock opera Over The Line plus songs by our guitarist Jim McCann formerly of the band LIOS (Leave It On Stage).

I regularly perform in the Northeast with The Steal Your Peach Band, a tribute to the music of The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, and The Band led by legendary New England bandleader Rev Tor.

In 2019 I started playing with a project called "dB" which is led by ex-Pink Talking Fish guitarist Dave Brunyak. We are currently reformulating the band and will be playing under a new name in 2020.

You can also find me playing with the accordion led chamber noir jazz group Minouchka, led by the incredible Rachel Koppelman.

In 2012 I debuted my rock opera Over The Line, a psychological-political fairy tale about self discovery and indoctrination. Head on over to the Music Page to listen to and download Over The Line.

I'm currently working on a second rock opera project based around The Salem Witch Trials as well as recordings by The Brian O'Connell Fellowship and Dave Brunyak along with an unreleased Uncle Sammy album from 2003 that is being finalized.

Thanks again for visiting, I hope that we can meet face to face real soon!
