ABOUT

I've been playing and singing in bands for 40+ years and have played many different types of gigs. I've played in rock/blues/pop and some jazz/rockabilly. I've performed in upscale restaurants, dive bars, nice bars, and parties. Originally I was hired for mainly lead guitar, but as time went on I learned to harmonize and sing lead. There's still a lot to learn!

Influences

My first album was the Beatles Sergeant Pepper; then came Clapton, Page, West, Santana and all the top guitarists and singers of that era. Later I listened to quite a bit of fusion guys, as well as having studied jazz and classical guitar. After that I became more interested in vocals and vocal harmony in particular. The Beatles became a very big influence because they teach one so much about musicality and great song writing. I've always loved Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Stevie Nicks as well as the great female vocalists from farther back in time and up till today. Throughout all the influences though I'm never far from the blues.

Members Of Band

We are in the process of putting together a band. We currently have myself on lead/rhythm and vocals as well as a seasoned bass player. We have a female lead/harmony singer that also plays the cajon; which effectively handles our drum needs. We're looking for a rhythm/lead player who would enjoy sharing some lead vocals and possibly add some more harmony. We're angling our song selections to cover gigs from country clubs to parties to municipal shows to restaurants and bars. We've all come from different bands over the years and are reliable and professional.

EQUIPMENT

Guitars: Ibanez, Martin, An assortment of basses, mainly Fender, cajons and other rhythm/percussion instruments. Fender and Vox amplifiers. Hartke, Fender and Ampeg bass amplifiers.
