ABOUT

I'm really looking for a working variety band. For that, you have to have country at the top of your list. I do play everything, it's too bad that the genre selection only allows three. There's music genres that I don't even see listed that I play. I've got one CD out with jazz, blues, rockabilly, reggae, gonzo rock, and even a waltz. I'm working on a classical CD and another CD with funk, jazz, a polka, country, and more. When people ask me what instrument I play, I have to tell them what I don't play, no brass or reed, and I seldom play drums with sticks. ie. I have a very full toy box.
I'm highly energetic and I cultivate good audience reaction. I don't wear my ego on my sleeve so I'm real easy to get along with. I've played with prima donnas and attitude ober alles types and have lost my stomach for such like. After all, we're here to please the audience not for them to serve our egos. If people tell me I've played well or not I don't really listen to them, I look at the floor, if it's wet then folks have been jumping up and down spilling beer and having a good time. That's my success barometer.
I'm looking for a road dog band. I want to see mountains and oceans and practice my foreign language skills. I'd like to tour Russia, ya govaryoo po rooskie tozhye, et aussi je parle francais.
For material I've got a play list from here to there long and if I don't already know it, I'm a real quick study.
So if you're a touring band and have an open spot I can probably fill it from front man to rythm section to utility player to tech and anything else.
