I am a drummer and vocalist with a very diverse taste in music. I love any genre of music that has substance to it and attracts my attention. It could be a Rhythm, A bass line or something as simple as a cow bell (MORE COWBELL) that rings out at a certain time in a song, But a band with a solid foundation, a good rhythmic feel and good vocals always grabs my attention over all other bands. I was a road dog and gun for hire for more than 25 years up until 1995 when I settled down in Memphis, TN. to return to school to get a degree in Computer Science and Computer Information systems, get married and have kids. The music never left me and I never stopped performing and now plan to return full time if the conditions are right. I am only interested in dedicated, professional, musicians. I don't care if your music consists of a 3 chord progression, if you are NOT dedicated enough to make those 3 chords sound the best they can sound by rehearsal, and if you are NOT professional enough to present those 3 chords in front of an audience the way they are rehearsed, then please do NOT waste my time or yours.

When I Dream At Night
When I Dream At Night Genre: Acoustic
This song is an example of my vocal abilities. All of the lead and backing tracks are performed by me and recorded in my home studio using a Zoom 8 track digital recorder. The song is a remake of a song originally performed by Marc Anthony. The instruments are provided via various MIDI tone modules and sequenced by me using an Atari 1040 Mega ST and DRT MIDI Sequencing Software. (DRT is still by far the best MIDI sequencing software around)
