ABOUT

Ideally, we'd meet and share lyrical ideas, musical tones, ways to entertain for fun and for profit, help people celebrate the "now" without un-necessary ego or negativity... The best aspects of my existence are being able to write and perform original songs ala Beatles, Clapton, Dylan, SRV, Bob Marley, Willie Dixon and Led Zeppelin, etc., plus sing and play top requested cover songs for the benefit of people who as my Grandpa would say, "...they're very fond of what they like...".

Influences

Beatles, Clapton, Dylan, SRV, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Hank Williams, James Taylor, ETC! My local and coast-to-coast touring experience as an instrumental side-man and back-up-harmony-vocalist has always been fun, but not as satisfying as being a musically creative artist in friendly, intimate, environments and venues. (...always being available for solo, duo, trio and larger acoustic combo gigs as well as electric, dance band gigs...) Acoustic gigs include genres such as folk, folk rock, alternative, and even dinner music while people are eating at charity benefits and restaurants.
