Influences

The "Lee Bros"...Geddy and Will !!! Entwistle, Jaco, Flea, Sting, Nathan East, Pino Palladino, Jack Bruce...80s metal and prog rock...have played most styles.

I began playing trumpet and baritone horn in grammar school continuing through high school. Raised listening to big band and country music, an early influence were the Beatles.
Everything changed when I heard the Overture to Rush's 1976 release, 2112, a few years after its release...the mold was cast.

While everyone seemed to be drawn to guitar or drums, I found the bass guitar, or perhaps it found me (the happy medium of rhythm and melody).

Although a die hard Rush fan with a taste that runs toward the hard and heavy, I can appreciate, and have played many genres from worship music and metal to Staten Island Community Stage Band and finding myself in the pit of critically acclaimed community theater productions of Broadway hits such as Jesus Christ Superstar and Little Shop of Horrors.

I've played with many bands including EECE, DIVINE RITE, BIG PALOOKA, TAKE COVER, FREE PASS and T.O.S.S. (The Other Side Of Sexy).
