ABOUT

Currently touring with the Gibson Brothers electric and bluegrass band. When not on tour I plan on playing locally and continue with studio gigs in the Northeast. Previously played with the band Uncle Flatty or UF. .uncleflatty out of Connecticut for 4 years. While in CT I continued to make as many gigs as physically possible with Plattsbrugh based band - Zip City Blues - .zipcityblues. Prior to CT played with Zip City regularly for approximately 15 years.
I've been giggin for 35+ years – lead, rhythm, slide pedal steel guitar and dobro as part of many different bands and also played as a duo/trio from the Zip City Band as well. I can still play 5 string banjo although do not currently own one. Love the Blues, Country Blues, Hillbilly R&R, Tex Swing, Funk etc.... If anyone needs guitar, slide guitar, pedal steel guitar or dobro in the studio - let me know. I have experience on several albums over the past few years playing pedal steel, slide and electric guitar. For an example Check out Jeff Hahn, Ben Fuller or Tim Bricks album - I play pedal steel and some slide as well.
