ABOUT

As for music style, I am not terribly particular. I'm not into really heavy music, but classic rock, blues, country, rock, oldies, etc, I'm all about.

I have been working steady in the music business since 1993. In that time I have done everything from house gigs and club dates to touring. I have played music for a living and also done it as a paid-hobby. These days, now that I have a family, I play music as a side job rather than as my main source of income. I have experience in country, rock, blues, oldies, 80s/90s rock-pop, and even symphonic percussion. I'm currently studying jazz as well.
