ABOUT

hi
i’m a hobbyist piano player in his mid 40s. would like to be able to call myself a musician, not there yet, but work on it daily.
- the music i’m into is mostly new orleans piano blues, everything from jelly roll through to james booker. booker, dr john and of course professor longhair are my favs.
- i’m happy to learn songs that you want to play too.
- for me this is mostly for the fun of playing with someone else and trying to get to the point where i can do that with ease. a secondary goal is to record our sessions and flesh them out with some bass and guitar. would be very happy to collaborate on that if you are interested.
- i cant improvise yet.
- have no preferences on ages or experience levels, if you want to play with me, i’d like to play with you.
- i have a kit at my house so you dont have to lug any equipment.
