ABOUT

I have have had my own bands for the 30 years. I play harmonica, percussion (congas, bongos, and a variety of other percussion instruments. I am also a vocalist. My bands have played, classic rock, jazz, R&B, blues, funk, Latin and hip hop. I am seeking to play with other bands and I am also seeking a keyboard player. I am a good listener and I am very collaborative (my ego is contained). I am also well educated. I live in the San Fernando Valley but will travel up to 30 miles one way. I do have recording studio experience and have recorded with artists such as Taj Mahal, Dave Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Los Cenzontles and Kester Smith. I know approximately about 75 songs of various genres vocally and musically. I was a lead vocalist for years.
