I played keyboards in the semi-professional band, "Surrogate", from 1971 until 1981. We had horns and played original avant-garde Jazz-Rock at colleges and bars. We even played the old "Main Point" for Columbia Records. In the 1980's I was briefly the keyboard player in the backup band of "The Trammps". In the 90's I was in the band "Worlds Be Bumpin' ". We played bars in Philly including "The Blue Moon Cafe" and "The Chestnut Cabaret" doing Jazz, Rock, Funk, Soul, R&B, Blues, and original music. Since then I have been on my own writing music. I'd like to find/make a band with musicians who already have original music of their own and will play my music. I have more than enough songs in various stages of composition to make a CD.
