ABOUT

I started out at 6 yrs old with the accordion and my family has always been in the music biz. Took up trumpet in 5th grade, played in symphonic, concert, and jazz bands in HS, and also played Jazz Guitar for sporting events and for most jazz performances. After HS, played in a Contemporary Christian band, then in College played in cover bands for parties. Have always been very versatile in my music tastes, and use much of my influence across genres. I also pick up harmonies very easily and have a pretty good range, starting pretty low in the bass to mid tenor range, and then a very clear falsetto.

Influences

Many jazz greats including Chuck Mangione, Herb Alpert, and Maynard Ferguson. Guitar influences include Steve Lukather (my Idol), Joe Satriani, Brian May, Neal Schon, and many others. Toto has always been my favorite band, but again my musical tastes are so diverse from the Beatles all the way through current rock and metal bands. I have the ear, but the technical ability to solo is not so excellent, so I make a much better rhythm guitarist and backup vocalist.

EQUIPMENT

Right now I have a Marano Bb Trumpet, an Ibanez Gio X series Electric Guitar, a Washburn X series Electric Guitar, and a Fever Electric Acoustic. I only have a couple of small studio 15-20 watt amps (Line6 Spider, and a Crate GT15) but I have enough friends in the biz that I could get access to better equipment if needed.
