ABOUT

**dreamweaver_atl at hot mail dot com**

I was born in San Francisco, the city of rock & roll by the bay, with music as diverse as the various cultures. Experiencing the sights and sounds of the city during the 60's & 70's contributed to my musical influences. From the heavy back beat of Motown, to the variety of psychedelic rock, the funk of the 70's R&B, to the wide spectrum of arena rock, I moved from "Oaktown" to the ATL in 98. I have played around in Atlanta with a reggae/variety band "Crucial Dread", The Whooping Cranes(Rock & Variety), DELTA HOUSE(Classic Rock Covers) and Guilty Pleasure (Classic Rock Covers), plus a R&B group "The B.G. Family Band"(R&B, Funk, Groove); Calling Trinity (Classic Rock/ Rock & Blues Covers), Square One (Classic Rock/Alternative Covers); Lost In Chaos (Melodic Rock Originals/Classic Rock/Alternative Covers and David Bowie Tribute Showcase); Sonic Hitchhikers (Cult Tribute Showcase/Alternative covers); St. Sitra Chamber: (Led Zeppelin/Deep Purple Cover Band); Block Party Band Atlanta (70's-80's- 90's Party Cover Band)
I am currently looking to join an existing Tribute/Cover/Bar Band or fill-in gigs.
