ABOUT

I am moving to the San Diego area (North County, specifically) in September 2020 from Philadelphia. I am primarily a guitarist and vocalist and am also competent on sitar, harmonica, piano and bass. I am a songwriter with three CDs of original music, but most of my recent work has been doing tribute shows. My main project over the last 6 years in the Philly area was an Eric Clapton tribute band. I have also done a lot of Beatle-related and other 60's and 70's trib shows and have a large repertoire of songs from this genre. I enjoy both acoustic and electric interpretations in performance.

I am leaving 30 years of musical connections and friendships in Philly and looking to make friends here in the SD area with like-minded musicians to play with, ultimately to gig around if it works. Committed to the music and the project.
