ABOUT

I've played piano professionally most of my life in the Chicago area but had a career change that brought me to Tallahassee. I don't know any musicians here and want to meet people to start or join a band with. My style ranges from swing, ragtime, stride, R&B, soul, modern jazz, gospel, Latin (salsa, boleros, cha-cha, etc.) I have a strong New Orleans sound to everything I do. And, I like playing in big groups with a horn section, but you gotta start somewhere, so I would be happy to start with something duo.

More important than musical skill, I like playing with people who are fun and have a sense of humor. It's not band practice without relentless joke cracking.
