ABOUT

Started playing drums at 8 yrs old. Did the junior high / high school band thing and continued to the U.S. Army band.

After a long hiatus from performing and playing for just me, I co-founded the very successful Northern Colorado Band, "Shaving Peggy" in 2010.

I have had the honor of opening for national acts such as The Charlie Daniels Band and Winger, co-headlined events with CCR, Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Three Days Grace, and others at the Greeley Stampede and other festivals for several years. Other notable venues I've performed at include The Thunder Mountain Amphitheatre, Dickens Opera House, The Boot Grill, Larimer County Fair at the Budweiser Event Center "Ranch" complex, Laramie County Fair (Cheyenne Frontier Days complex), and many others.

A career change and traveling schedule in late 2014 caused my departure from Shaving Peggy, and like all great bands, they kept moving forward and will do great things.

My situation has recently changed and I can start playing again and commit the time and effort that is necessary to contribute to the success of a professional band.

I'm looking for non-hack, professional musicians and vocalists that understand the importance of delivering a quality product....both entertaining and musically.

Originals are great, but high energy and danceable covers done superbly get the gigs, and keep them coming.

I have practice space in my house. No flakes, egos, substance problems, or girl friend issues please.
