ABOUT

Currently in a band, the Stringbenders since 2005 as an accordion player. Play a Roland V Accordion which is an electric accordion simulating accordions and keyboard tones. Not seeking to be in another band, but when available, maybe jam, open mic, experiment or collaborate on different style projects in my local area. I am also an acoustic and electric guitar player. Videos shared are to illustrate some of my playing styles. All videos are of my work as a member of The Stringbenders band. My favorite is the styles of Los Lobos, Texas Tornados as they really show their variety of influences. I love classic rock and country too. Thank you for your interest in the accordion! ;)
