ABOUT

I've played music for the past 50 years ( Professionally, Toured, ) I'm not looking to tour anymore but I would like to get into something to have fun playing music. I'm not a drinker and do not want to put up with alcoholic's anymore....been there done that. If you've got a habit......stay away from me !. I've been in bands that have opened for national acts and have shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Peter Frampton, Hank Williams Jr. Mickey Gilley, Earl Thomas Conley. etc.etc. It's time to kick back and enjoy playing music again whether it be a duo, trio or full band. Music should always be fun and enjoyable for both musician and audience. No Drama, No Ego's been there and done that too......I've played country, Texas Swing, Classic Rock, Blues, Dance music.
