Band to Join.

ABOUT

I like and can play most music, as usually happens, we gravitate to the songs we love. I have been playing bass and guitar since childhood, heavy country and traditional influences early on, then rock, blues, covers, acoustic/ folk, tried them all. Love 'em all.

Decided one day to learn every song I ever liked and so I'm never at a loss of new and interesting material to learn. Bass, Rhythm and Lead Guitar. Piano for past 10 years, still getting better!

Music is my life. Practice every day. Love to gig. Get paid weakly. Have road worthy high end playing gear. Band support gear which includes lighting (Chauvet) and Bose PA systems.

Presently, I'm a bass player in The Elwoods, a local Milford, CT band. We do charity events, fundraisers, memorials, tons of fun, good times, worthy causes. Classic Rock, Rhythm and Blues, Hippie songs, Grateful Dead.....no limit, we can almost play anything.

New for 2022!! I was recruited into the Atomic Unknown by Mental Elvis and have been practicing furiously over the winter with this all original Metal/Rock band.

I need to mention 1 other endeavor, "The Griffin Gang".
Since there are many acoustic videos linked to this site, I would like to credit my family, Eric, Greta, Dino, Jack and Rebecca
We all play a yearly gig at Smugglers Notch along with "Gentle Elvis" where I play acoustic guitar with "Dino" on harmonica.
This is truly an "all family band" I am blessed to have such a talented and wonderful family, who play and sing together.
