_ I LOVE all kinds of music and I LOVE TO PLAY IT!!!
_I also LOVE TO TEACH and I'm able to relate to people of many backgrounds--starting with
CHILDREN AGED 5 to the young-at-heart senior citizens!

PLEASE NOTE: It's also comprises a sizable portion of my income. In other words, it truly helps keep a 'roof over my head.' I'm MAINLY INTERESTED in bands/groups with CURRENT CALENDARS and/or CONFIRMED future bookings!
If your project fits that description, please call me at 3-zero-3--5-2-zero--7-7-3-8
Or, send a note to hrm1holberg my address--(Add the aforementioned sequence of letters-hrm1 etc. etc- to . I check that location far more often than this account)
I'm available for HIRE as a soloist or a small group to play events, wedding ceremonies and/or other special occasions. I also play church services.
Hobby" musicians and "rehearsal" bands (who do nothing but that), while I wish you the best in your endeavors, I've already spent MORE than enough time driving to/from someone's house or rehearsal space (driving 20 miles across town--one way--often in rush hour traffic) just to rehearse in someone's basement, rehearsal space, etc. etc. with a band that has NO GIGS, but who ASSURES me they WILL HAVE GIGS (at an undetermined place and time in the distant future) "as soon as", or "once they get", or similar phrase which indicates a condition
(although PLEASE DON'T just "give it away"--for FREE-no matter the level of ability)
However, if you're interested in lessons and/or you or your band doesn't fall into the "hobby" or "rehearsal"band/musician category, by all means, please send an email for demo/resume, or general info.
