Band to Join, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Trumpet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Trombone.


Many years of experience in small and large bands(3pc) power trio to (8pc) with horn section. I can also handle harmony and back-up vocals. I began playing with local 3pc to 5pc bands performing local gigs. I eventually joined an eight piece touring group called "Fat Chance"."Fat Chance" had the standard instrumentation but also included a four piece horn section and gained local popularity for its style and quality of music. After 15 yrs of east coast touring, I was offered a contract with a management company in New Orleans which I could not refuse. At the end of the four year contract, I moved to Branson,MO. I played various venues in and around Branson until 2000. I moved to Phoenix and retired from music but, after a few years and coaching from friends, have decided to jump back in. I can and have played a wide spectrum of music but enjoy southern rock, classic rock, smooth jazz, funk and blues. Please, no part timer. want full timers ready to do casino and short distance touring. I would like to be a member of a well organized, squeeky tight, group of musicians already established who need a drummer to complete the band and enjoy each others company. I am also available for studio track sessions.
