ABOUT

I am very experienced in most forms of live performance. I have been the lead guitarist in Andrea and the Mods (check out the website, , and be Channels) for 15 years and have played thousands of gigs in the Southeast Wisconsin Area. I was also the guitarist and singer in the old Exhibit A. Recently I have seen a lot of disorganization and cancelled gigs and I count on my gig money as income. I've never missed a gig in 45 years and know how to be on stage. I make the time to learn my parts and sing excellent high backup vocals as well as any lead vocals in my range. If you decide to shoot me an audition and note my birthday I just encourage to check out pix of The Mods before deciding I'm too old. I keep myself very trim and in shape and am drug and drama free. The only thing I do not do is jazz guitar. I also teach beginning and intermediate guitar from my home.
