ABOUT

Played in central Ohio lounge & bar bands in my early 20s. I got married and started a family and played at all types of churches for about 35 years. I am now retired from a Information Technology career. For the last 3 years i started joining bands playing popular music from the 60s, 70s & 80s.
I am always looking for opportunities to play with other musicians. Even if it is multiple bands.
I can sing back ground harmonies and some lead.
I do not write my own original music, but I like working with and supporting those who do.
