ABOUT

I am an experienced (former) tour musician with a long professional history that includes performing with known national recording bands, The Boxtops, Bowzer of ShaNaNa, Billy J. Krammer, Bobby Lewis and more. I have also played locally with Ruff Cut (the Club 66 house band) and the Jax (featuring Dennis Shocket). I took some time off to be a father but now my children are older and I'm ready to start performing again. I bring a professional attitude and work ethic. I am strong guitarist (acoustic and electric) and can provide some keyboard support. I can also sing harmonies. I work hard and will come prepared to play.
