ABOUT

One of New England's most successful producer/performers of A circuit show bands. Just moved to Florida from greater Boston area. My last R&B/Funk gig band," Kickin-it Band", just finished recording our second live studio CD, entitled "Still Kickin-it" , which will be released this September. Samples of our first live studio CD is here on my page to review or Amazon or I-Tunes.
Currently working on our latest CD, I have put my successful gig phase behind me. Too busy with family, now semi-retired from gigs, clubs and moving equipment around too often. I will do a few gigs, but prefer pro funk/R&B jams or studio sessions with seasoned pros only. I want to curb my past R&B/Funk/Cover band run since 1982, but still keep my chops from rusting and just have some fun.
Please check out my last CD samples on this page or I-Tunes or Amazon to download. You can sample some of my/our work here or to get the full effect of the many horn solos I incorporated into these Funk oriented, jazzy arrangements please go to Amazon.
