ABOUT

Saxophonist (soprano, alto, tenor, bari) with experience in all styles of music including jazz (combo & big band), rock, soul, blues, R&B, classical, etc. Studied under Chip McNeil (played in Woody Herman's, Arturo Sandoval and Maynard's bands). I have shared the stage with Bobby Shew, Christian McBride, Arturo Sandoval, Jim Payne, Melvin Sparks and The Hit Men (from The Four Seasons/Shondells/Critters). Doubles include flute and clarinet.

I run a weekly jazz jam at Joey's Italian Grill in Niceville every Tuesday 7-10pm. Stop by and play a few tunes!

Influences

Studied jazz, but prefer taking the jazz influences and applying them to other styles of music such as rock, reggae, ska, latin, afrobeat, etc. Most passionate about "soul" (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Sugarman 3, etc). Currently playing mainly individual freelance gigs for all styles of music. Would be especially interested to join/start a funk/soul or latin band (or combo: Spam Allstars, Suenalo, etc). Also interested in playing with a "street" band with newer influences (check out Too Many Zooz, Drumadics or Moon Hooch on be).

EQUIPMENT

Soprano, alto, tenor, bari sax and flute.
