ABOUT

66 year old horn player with over 50 years of playing out in a wide variety of bands and musical styles. I play with a "pretty" sound that blends well with acoustic string players as well as electric guitars and keyboards. My wife and I are seriously thinking about relocating from the Tampa Bay area to north Georgia, and I need to know if there will be sufficient musical opportunities to adequately feed my creative soul. I can read, but play anything by ear and appreciate a wide variety of musical genres. I can also do some singing.
