ABOUT

I have played professionally on and off for 40 years. Now semi-retired from industry career work. In the 90's I played with the famed James Montgomery Blues Band in Boston and Motown singer Barbara Holiday. Later I went to Nashville and played with Scooter Lee and Roy Clayborn who were up coming recording artists. I built a name for myself around New England for focusing on getting the right tone and placing notes in the right place. I know what to play to get an crowds excited about the bands music. Looking to hook up with a few good pros that can turn down the volume when needed and play interesting crowd pleasing music. For starters I would like to find a good vocalist, though I sing lead myself, and a bass player who can migrate from rock, blues to improve jazz. Playing an upright bass would be super. .....Once in a while you can catch me performing acoustic material that includes covers, blues, flamenco, and some originals at the Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley. ....Note, besides my originals, I do wide variety of covers from 60's 90's and standard blues & Motown music. Lately, I have been getting into Latino & Santana style music and flamenco
