Band to Join.

ABOUT

Road experienced, Berklee music college educated life long musician/ entertainer. I have had the opportunity to be front man and leader of a number of successful groups from New England to the Carolinas.
As a musician I play all the woodwinds and actively perform with three saxes: tenor, alto and soprano, clarinet and flute. I have a background in arranger for small band ( up to 9 pieces) and I have worked for more than forty years in every genre from the mid-sixties to the present. Pop of the day, true oldies, classic rock, Jazz( new and old), funk, Christian and Country Western are all styles, I have had the opportunity to have performed over a long successful career. As an entertainer/lead singer and front man, I have established myself with many bands as the " crowd favorite", the Energizer Band member and my love of performing and pleasing any style of audience I entertain is always evident without exception. I've worked to be the full package whether playing with a background jazz trio, or fronting a heavy horn show band. Let Dave Maher take you on a "Saxual High".
