I'm an old guy with an interest in playing jazz or jazzy stuff (reading from The Real Book) and would like to expand in that direction. I'd like to play live with as little equipment as possible at the smallest venues - perhaps all acoustic.

I've posted a bunch of videos from my be channel to give you an idea of what I sound like. Many of these videos are live (live streaming using HAPPS). I believe it is important to show how you sound live without the aid of processing audio recordings.

I am currently performing live most weekends in Los Gatos - usually pop songs with the occasional (actual) jazz piece.

I can play limited things on mandolin.

I can sing a little - but, I'd never make it as a singer.
