ABOUT

I am a seasoned Blues/Jazz/R&B/Cover Entertainer who has been away from the music scene for approximately three years. I am desirous to join a serious-minded band/trio/quartet/pianist willing to work hard for an outcome leading to consistent local (Philadelphia/New Jersey area), domestic (other U.S.) and/or international gigs.

EQUIPMENT

As a result of playing the percussion section (base drum, kettle drum, snare, chimes, xylophone, cymbals, etc.) for three years while in my high school band, I can "read and write" A LITTLE music. However, I believe my main strengths lie in my ability to carry a tune and entertain a crowd.

I am primarily a lead singer but I admire, and enjoy taking part in, background vocals and harmonizing.

My major (non-sexual) turn on? When the band's instrumentalists, lead vocals and background vocals are in perfect -- or damn near perfect -- sync. YEAH!
