Band to Join.

ABOUT

I grew up in Central Africa... I am one of those rare creatures a WHITE AFRICAN! I was raised in a musical family and played in reggae and ska bands back in the early 70's. I then moved to South Africa and played more variety and more seriously because I had to make a living... I played in many genres, from big-band to hard rock - eventually writing, musically directing and performing in musical theater.
I narrowed in on Jazz around 1998.
