ABOUT

I’m looking to plug myself back into the Michiana music scene after a 38 year absence (Madd Hattyr, 1980). Long story short, I was gigging in Indy until 2016 when I moved back to Elkhart for an old flame, and am really Jonesing to get out and play again.

’ve uploaded a short MP4 of me playing along with some very famous musicians – Beck, Steely Dan, Blake Shelton, Jerry Reed and Queen! Actually, they never showed up in my “studio” so I had to settle for playing along with their recordings.

In Indy I played in a lot of bands, mostly classic rock and country, and I even played in a band that did polkas, ethnic music, some American Standards, etc. I am reliable, easy to work with, always do my homework, am drug free and never drink to excess while gigging. I have good reliable gear – primary and backup, and reliable transportation. I can furnish references that will attest to my ability, dependability and overall good guy-ness.

I’m not super picky about genre – I’ll play rock, classic rock, R&B, blues, country, just about anything except metal, hip hop or heavy jazz. I am, however, looking for serious musicians with the ability to put it all together quickly (if not already together) and get quality gigs. I am not looking to just jam or spend months in the garage or basement. I know a drummer who might also be interested .
