ABOUT

I've been gigging with several groups in the Ogden/SLC area. A few of these groups are Jordan Soul, Dizzy Desoto, Tito Kennedy, Fusion and The Highway Thieves. Check out thehighwaythieves. For twenty years I ran a recording studio (pre digital). After that I owned and operated an audio/video production company. Give me a call I'm ready to play 801-200-1906.. I am considering starting my own band.
