ABOUT

A guitarist of 30+ years, I have been in many cover bands, both working and for fun. I am currently in an funk/soul/rock cover band, playing funky/groovy arrangements of all kinds of tunes. I like playing with creative people who like to serve the song more than draw attention. Music is my passion and what I do for fun; while I'm serious about it, I don't take it (or myself) too seriously.

Influences

I cut my teeth on classic and progressive rock and jam bands, but love music of many types (funk, blues, electronica, alternative, motown). Not a huge country or metal fan, but like to experiment with fusions of lots of styles. Jane's Addiction (and anything by Perry Farrell), John Mayer, Foo Fighters, Soul Coughing, BNL, OK Go, Sublime, 311, Train, Ben Folds, The Code Talkers, Cake, Green Day, Chile Peppers, Jukebox the Ghost, Young the Giant — so many more... Latest obsession is with Scary Pockets and would like to emulate this approach to music.
