Hello and thanx for reading. Currently performing every Thursday & Saturday evening at Viola's Ventana. I have been a full/part time musician for over 35 years. I am a strong lead singing guitarist...my repertoire includes hundreds of songs from classic rock, R&B, country, oldies, T40, lounge standards... (clik on CALENDAR <below> to see song list)...love to work cruise ships, casinos, overseas, road tours...available for long term contracts. Please...

Based in Los Angeles for 18 yrs but now in San Antonio, I had the privilege working with Morris Wade at The Money Tree in Toluca Lake for many years as well as house band musician for seven years at The Casa Rea and The Bigs Oaks Lodge...in the metro Los Angeles area. Other clubs included The Tryst, Tree House, Crying Towel, and countless Southern California area venues.
