ABOUT

I play acoustic and electric guitar and sing background vocals. I have between 5 and 7 years gigging experience. Most of this playing was in Manhattan when I lived there while I was married (I’ve been divorced for approx. 10 years.)!

I play mostly blues — including acoustic and electric, covers and originals (I also write songs and lyrics). Name a blues cat — whether one of the “founding fathers” whose music influenced every monster player since the ‘60s and continued to find new devotees to this day

I play through a modest but comprehensive and amazing-sounding rig and bring only those instruments and other parts of the rig that will work for the songs on the set list. (I’m not a player who hopes listeners will ogle at my pedal board board more than appreciate the music I’m accompanying.)

I take rehearsals and gigs extremely important, and for the right players will make myself available in southwest CT (I live in downtown Bridgeport).

A quick call and I will answer any questions you lob at me (631-339-6456).

Thank you for reading; I hope it’ll enable us to connect.

EQUIPMENT

Is it really that important? Let’s just say I acquire the best rig I could afford and bring only two the parts of it that will support and lift the songs on the set list.)
