I've played over 7000 live gigs in my 25 year career. My influences range from John Bonham to Richie Hayward. I've the experience and in-the-pocket dynamic ability to lay down a groove on anything from Led Zeppelin, SRV, Jimmy Buffett, Merle Haggard, George Clinton, Price, Madonna bubble gum pop and more...I can also lay a thick swing or shuffle groove for the Blues venues too. I also love playing jazz and wish I could do it more often in any setting.

I've got studio experience, and worked/recorded for a company in NY that wrote and produced jingles.

I also sing...and am comfortable singing lead on many tunes, as well as nailing that third harmony that fills the tune.

I am booked fairly solid, and WONT PLAY FOR FREE. No start-ups. Email me for rates and available open dates. I am also married with two children....I have no interest for long-term road trips, touring or any travel commitments lasting longer than 14 days.
