The Jazz Scholars

The Jazz Scholars can adapt to any size crowd, venue or event.  With jazz contacts throughout the region, Patrick can put together a combination of the Jazz Scholars that is just right for your event.   The Jazz Scholars have performed at The Pinelands Jazz Festival, private functions such as a Wine and Beer Tasting at The Mansion in Voorhees (photo right), and at the Cherry Hill Music Under the Stars series.

Aashka Jazz Orchestra

Need a big band?  The Aashka Jazz Orkestra features some the best big band musicians in the region led by trumpeter Carmelo Villegas.  The band specializes in jazz standards the way they should be heard.

Pat on the Back

What do you get when you combine one of New Jersey's top young bassists and one of its leading female voices?  Pat on the Back is the unique brainchild of Patrick (on guitar and bass) and Patty Irwin, an opera and musical theater major at Oklahoma City University.   

Musicals/Special Events

Patrick regularly performs in pit orchestras in musicals and other special events.  He has played for musicals the Temple University, Voorhees Theater Company, the Levoy Theater, and the Ritz Theatre in Oaklyn, and more.  He has also performed in various reviews including Dancing with the Cherry Hill Stars (photo right), Glee productions, and special benefit concerts. 

No Commitment (rock and soul band)


Patrick is also the lead guitarist and arranger for the rock band No Commitment, which has performed in venues ranging from legendary rock clubs like The Stone Pony in Asbury Park and The Trocadero in Philadelphia, to the Parx Casino in Bensalem, to theme parks including Morey's Piers, Six Flags, and Hershey Park.  The band has also headlines the annual fireworks shows in Medford and Cherry Hill for tens of thousands.  No Commitment always delivers a high energy, fun-filled show to get a crowd on their feet.


No Commitment ranges between 5 and 17 members, to deliver anything from tight rock and roll, to horn-driven big band style arrangements.  Their wide repertoire of material, ranging from rock and soul classics to contemporary pop music, makes them a perfect fit for any occasion.
