ABOUT

I recently moved to North County San Diego (Carlsbad) after 25 years in the Philadelphia music scene. In Philly I specialized in Tribute shows, specifically a Clapton Trib band (www.TheCoreClapton.com), various Beatle-related shows and others.

I am currently in 2 working cover band projects here in North County but am interested in establishing another Tribute band. I would consider continuing the Clapton thing but am thinking about a broader theme such as:

"' '66-'69: Music From the Rock's Revolutionary Years"

I am primarily a guitarist and vocalist and am also competent on sitar, harmonica, piano and bass. I am also a songwriter with three CDs of original music, and have a large repertoire of songs from this genre and era.

I am looking for like-minded musicians interested in being a part of this idea, and to ultimately to take this Tribute project to larger venues.
