ABOUT

A veteran lead vocalist/front man with beaucoup club and concert experience in the Northeast area who sings everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top. I have true on-key 3-1/2 live octaves for singing and basic rhythm guitar skills. I specialize in southern-rock [Outlaws, Skynyrd, Allmans, Hatchet, ZZTop, Blackfoot] and American classic rock [i.e. The Eagles, Doobies, CSNY, CCR, NRPS, The Band, Grand Funk, and Poco, etc], rockin' country [i.e. Montgomery-Gentry, BlackHawk, Toby Keith, Zac Brown] and British Invasion, classic & prog rock [Beatles, Moody Blues, Clapton et al, Bad Company, Yes, Genesis, ELP, Supertramp, Pink Floyd, etc.].

I am currently the lead vocalist for 6 GUN SOUND [Celebrating the Music of Paul Rodgers ~ Free, Bad Company, The Firm, The Law ] and JUNKYARD DAWGS [Southern Rock Classics and Classic Rock & Roll] plus other projects in the works.

Available for paying fill-in gigs and studio work.
