ABOUT

PROFILE: I am a nice, normal human being with no baggage. I believe in being united as a band although each member may have various opinions. I respect the designated leader of the band. I am available to play two to three times a month. I was a clergy for 33 years. Started guitar in the 3rd grade. Been singing & playing guitar before audiences since 6th grade. Love basic rock n roll but in reality love mostly all kinds of music. Consider myself at the advanced level in playing guitar and what I don't know I can learn quickly. I read very little music but have a basic foundation from taking guitar lessons. I play by "ear" and have near perfect pitch. I am an average bluegrass banjo player. Im a lead singer but do backup harmonies very well. I have the ability to play w any rock band on the spot. I like a variety of classic rock, blues, pop, bluegrass, C&W. I also do a single acoustical act for upscale bars/restaurants and private parties.
CURRENTLY band leader for Sun Dog Weaver.
