ABOUT

Former touring musician in Southwest Texas and California. Former student of Dave LaRue (Bassist for Joe Satriani, the Steve Morse Band, John Petrucci, the Dixie Dregs and others) and Perry Stern (Bassist for LO and DeadMens Dreams). I started playing again about 10 years ago. Will also do original music or studio work. Enjoy classic 60's & 70's rock as well as contemporary Southern Rock, Blues, R & B and especially Motown. Play original music, classic rock as well as newer covers by Evanescence, Saraya, Beth Hart, Incubus, Sass Jordan, Alanis Morisette and other more contemporary artists (Bands with dual male\female lead vocalists). Formerly with the band Peace (Vintage Rock\Covers), Kingstreet (Original\Southern Rock\Blues--Google: Kingstreet Band Promo.flv-You Tube), and the Intruders featuring Dalton Powell (drummer for The Bobby Fuller Four--I fought the law).
