ABOUT

Keyboard player whose been around the block a few times. Played in a large variety of bands, including several local Massachusetts outfits. Love all kinds of music. Reasonably good (although can always get better) - forced to get piano lessons as a kid, thanking my mom now! Like to let my hair down and have fun, happiest playing live. Try to mix up playing styles on electric/acoustic pianos, hammond organ, orchestral ensembles and modern/vintage synths. Always committed to any project.

EQUIPMENT

Pretty much anything required for most gigs. I have a Hammond B3 but since it takes an army to move, its somewhat retired now. Mini Moog, Clavinet, Fender Rhodes, Roland VR 760 (great gigging organ/keyboard), Roland XP30, Beautiful Yamaha P-250 Piano, Roland SH-201, Macbook Air with soft synths, and a bunch of other vintage keyboards. Two Roland KC Keyboard amps and a Leslie. Also full PA and lighting rig as well.
