Have played professionally for 35+ years in groups ranging from trios (Piano, Bass & Drums / Guitar, Bass & Drums) playing jazz to power rock and up to 8 piece show bands. Was with a R & B band out of Dallas, Texas called The Nightcaps. Started playing with them when I was 15 yrs old and stayed with that band for 34 years. They had a record and album out titled "Wine Wine Wine" and doing shows through out the south and southwest. Was also playing and recording with another group out of Dallas, Texas, when the Nightcaps were not playing, called the Exotics. The Exotics had some regional hits and were signed with Monument Records. That Band played a lot in the Austin, Texas area.
