ABOUT

(Edited for Covid)

Bandmix reminded me that i haven't visited in quite some time.... No surprise there. Lucky in that I have great musical friends and with some accomodation we get to make noise, I'm real lucky that although music is nessasary for my sanity, it is not the source for most of my livelihood. Like lots of folks, I miss playing out. But I feel bad for the folks who can't make rent because of it.

If you're reading this, I hope you're managing the pandemic okay -- hope it hasn't been too much of a burden financially, hope you've managed okay. If you need help, get help. The rest of us music types are pulling for you.

(Back to blurb)

Guitar player. DC burbs type, lots of bands in lots of places. These days living in Darnestown, playing covers with old friends. occasional special projects with right people.

We all have day jobs, are happily married, and few bad habits other than enjoying the occasional -- frequent -- tequila. We like to do a show every couple of months (Not so much these days), but won't go on tour anytime soon. If you're super-serious about your music career, musical earnings, or if you want note-perfect covers, I applaud your focus and send you positive energy and luck... But I'm probably not the droid you're looking for..:)
