Influences

I've got hundreds of rock/pop songs from the 50s thru today.

I'm very attracted to:
-- Party/Wedding Bands that move today's club/party-goers to dance, and sing-along
-- bands where solid vocals and tight harmonies are important.
--"keyboard heavy" bands that do lots of keys-centric tunes or have multiple keyboard players

EQUIPMENT

TCHelicon PerformVK processor,
dual Roland stereo KC550 PA/keyboard amps and KC-110 monitor,
Yamaha MX-61 synth, Korg Kross synth/keytar, Roland AX-09 keytar >> 3,000 voices on less than 30 lbs of keyboards!, Lovin it! When I started decades ago, to get a decent sound, it took over 1400 lbs of gear (Hammond C3, dual Leslie speakers, Fender ePiano and analog Moog Synth). I don't miss hauling those boat-anchors around.
