ABOUT

Founder of the Iowa School of Rock, I have run two music teaching studios for 25 years. Before that I gigged. Original and cover bands from rock to jazz to eclectic folk I guess. Pick up sideman for such noteworthy artists as Del Shannon and Bo Diddley, etc. Interested in shifting gears and getting into the post-covid live music surge. Jack of all trades but probably strongest as singing bass player or keyboard player. I like the idea of a small group with a spare sound. I also love to record.
