ABOUT

IF YOU USE A FAKE NAME OR A NUMBER AS YOUR NAME, DON'T EXPECT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

Hailing from Camden, Arkansas and currently "working" in Branson, Missouri, I've been playing music professionally for 40 years and have performed in a diverse range of genres.
My experience includes; original and cover bands, composing, recording, orchestra, renaissance festivals, madrigal feasts, community theater, weddings, funerals and praise/worship. Most recently, I spent two years (nearly 500 shows!) performing with the Sons of Britches show at the Little Opry Theater in Branson, Missouri.
But, country sucks, so . . .

I teach guitar, bass guitar, drums, recorder and sax privately and in classroom format. I also play mandolin, mandola, bouzouki and recently started playing cello.

I am married to Cozy Mystery, Romantic Suspense & Medieval Romance author, KP Stafford.
