ABOUT

I have played Texas Honky Tonks for 30+ years prior to moving to Washington. I have lots of studio and stage experience, sing excellent harmony vocals and fairly good lead, although I am perfectly comfortable doing harmonies only. I have played in bands that opened for Tracy Byrd, Restless Heart, Gary Allen, Rhett Akins, Charlie Daniels Band, etc. I have performed gigs from Seattle to Boston. I used to to average over 200 gigs per year but am now looking for a slower pace.

Influences

Merle Haggard, George Jones, all of the oldies, but I also am seriously influenced by the likes of Jason Aldeen and the newer generation.
