ABOUT

Have played most of my adult life, used to make my living as a musician. Blues, Jazz, Acoustic Folk, R&B & Gospel. Have no aspirations other than to meet some nice people, make some great music and play the occasional (local) gig.
Sing alto range and have a big voice. My primary instrument is guitar (45 yrs playing) I do rhythm, some lead and some slide. I play a bit of piano. I also play drums-percussion - my dad was a jazz drummer and taught me well, although I don't play drums that often, I can fiddle around when needed.
