I started out with the Beatles, country and the blues , then got into Jazz and studied at Berklee College of Music after which I became a music therapist in New Orleans. I then went into the pscychotherapy field full timer incorporating the art of music in psychotherapy for 30+ years. Now, "all I wanna do is play music" . I want to form a group that will bring music as therapy to help heal our shattered World.
We would play originals, standards jazz, pop, folk and classic rock with original arraignments. Looking for Singer-instrumentalists who want to share their music with people to help ease suffering. '
We would play in lounges, retirement communities, even nursing homes to bring Joy. Love and Compassion to those in need.
