ABOUT

I love playing music in all styles and have played jazz, blues, rock, acoustic, music theater, weddings and lounges. Formally played bass and mandolin with the Chicago Neo-Folk group, BIRDY. Currently organized and performing in the acoustic trio, The Holdouts ( formerly Hello In There ) with brother Robert (robfm) and former Blue Moon band mate, Eileen Guest. I have also performed with noted Chicago singer/ songstress Jewel Tancy.
