I'm in my 39th year of playing gigs. I do a solo show with guitar, harp and vocals. This is 3+ hours, local bars, wine and foliage trains, parties. I play electric lead and slide guitar, blues harp, lead and backing vocals. I want to play one or rarely two gigs a week and stay in the blues/classic rock/ old R&B genres. Music from the nineties to today is also game as long as it's healing music. I play a lot of lead guitar and harp, and both at once. I love good songs and get my inspiration from great bandmates. I play rhythm guitar because that's how a song is played.

My influences are Clapton, John Mooney, Dickie Betts, Robert Johnson. To a lesser extent, I am influenced by Blue Oyster Cult, Allman Brothers, Humble Pie, Rolling Stones. I like to play great songs.

Instrument experience:



I use three Stratocasters, Lee Oscar harps, a Blue 200 mic. My main amp is a 1979 Music Man 212 65. I own a Behinger PA for the solo work or rehearsal. I have a recording outfit on my Mac laptop and room mics. My pedal board is complete and hasn't caused any trouble in the last twelve gigs. I have a light duty set of stage lights, four Par 38 cans and a boom. I have a choice of speakers for the Behringer PA; I can do two sides with a 15" and horn cab and a 2X10 monitor on each side for a bar or party house. All this equipment works. I have a pair of gigantic Peavey 15" main cabs, these would work for outdoor shows.
