Band to Join.

ABOUT

I have a jazz background and a passion for R&B and Rock & Roll that has led me to play with “blues giants” such as Dr.Jonn, Jr.Wells, Johnnie Copeland, Duke Robelard as well as local favorites Barrence Whitfield, Gerry Portnoy, Nicole Nelson, Chicago Bob, Shirley Lewis and 4 Piece Suit. I also spent time touring the NYC club circuit in the 80's and 90's. I fronted my own roots rock band The Fabulous Roys and I'm currently drumming and lead vocalist for my trio, Red Hot Pokers.
I am always looking to expanding work possibilitis in a variety of settings.
