Band to Join.

ABOUT

Been playing music on and off for over 50+ years now (ouch)...
Piano as a little little one, to horns in elementary, hschool, and college...
Guitars started in hschool, and the bass guitar seemed to become my home in a band, and my heart &n soul!
Still can play a bit of keys and rhythm guitar if needed though... Have toured/performed in 10 different countries, easily over a 100+ live shows at this point, (just counted 45 in 2021) and have had the privilege of recording with numerous artists...

I'm always looking for new friends, musicians and venue owners to collaborate with, whether it's subbing for a show or 2, a day in the studio, a full time touring musical adventure, to bringing some great line dancing fun to your venue, as this is a big big part of my life...
