ABOUT

I’m fully vaccinated and itching to make some music again with others. The people I was gigging with before the pandemic have less time for that than they used to, so I’m looking for another musical project. I'm seeking mature folks of any age whose musical interests overlap with mine to have fun, bring joy to our listeners and make a few bucks playing music we love. If we start something from scratch, we can sharpen our focus once we see where our interests overlap, but my own interests include, among other stuff, soul music and earlier R&B; soul-jazz; early rock and roll; blues; and roots rock generally. If you don’t have a Premier Account, reach me at marbury double you at y-a-h-o-o etc.
