10 years ago today I completed my final rounds of radiation and chemo therapy! I have been in bonus time ever since and cherish my time on this Earth and would like to acknowledge that without my wife Laurie and my daughter Lydia(just 9 months old when I was diagnosed) I most certainly would not have had the will to fight like I did. My mom and dad, Dotty and Walt and my sister’s Jill and Peg and their families as well as Laurie’s mother Delores and all of her sibling’s and their families were instrumental in helping us to get through this tough year. I would like to acknowledge and thank Sheryl Crow for giving us her beautiful Craftsman guest house to live in during the treatments and allowing for us to have room for visiting family that took shifts helping us. There are way too many people to thank for this one post! In the coming days/weeks I would like to dive in deeper with this… Some amazing and inspirational events were put together on my behalf… Beat it Wally benefit organized by Butch Vig with help from Jackson Browne, Tom Cambell, Tad Wadhams and an All-Star line up of talent and friends! Also, Benefits in San Juan Capistrano at the Coach House(Tom Fitzgerald), SF at the Independent(An Army of Bay Area friends and Musicians!) and Boise Idaho(Scott Herbert). Paula O’Rourke for creating and managing “Beat it Wally”, “Team Wally” and “Wally LLAMA” Red, Gold and Green bracelets. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You to all contributed their support and prayers!
Today I would like to give thanks to all of my Doctors, and all of my loving and supportive family and friends who were in the trenches far and near during my battle with Stage 4 Squamous cell head and neck cancer. We Beat it together!! THANK YOU!!

Voodoo Dead in February! Jackie Greene, Steve Kimock, Jeff Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge, Wally Ingram, Papa Mali, and more TBA!
For the 11th consecutive year, NYC-based promoters CEG and Nolafunk honor the spirit and music of New Orleans with their 11th Annual Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball & Tour. The four shows will feature Voodoo Dead, a band that has only ever performed in New Orleans as part of Jazz Fest late-nights in 2015 and 2016. This particular lineup features an unprecedented artist lineup with Steve Kimock [RatDog, Rhythm Devils], Jackie Greene [Black Crowes, Phil & Friends], Oteil Burbridge [Dead & Co, Allman Bros.], Jeff Chimenti [Dead & Co, Furthur, The Dead], Wally Ingram [Sheryl Crow Band, Timbuk 3], plus special guest New Orleans-based Papa Mali of 7 Walkers. A New Orleans brass band will be announced soon as the opening act.
The mini-tour will feature stops at The Hamilton in Washington D.C. for two nights (February 8th – 9th), then Irving Plaza in New York City (February 10th), and the Ardmore Music Hall just outside Philadelphia (February 11th.) More special guests will be announced in coming weeks to round out this extraordinary bill to celebrate the music of The Grateful Dead and more, with a New Orleans twist.
