ABOUT

I want to make good music and have some fun, to be one of the best around the area, duo, trio, or band.

I'm easy to get along with and I do not have a big ego. Would like to have a team project where we are all open to any and all suggestions.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please ask.

I played a Hammond B3 organ (with a Kruger string bass pedal unit) in a very active band in the Syracuse NY area for over 15 years, playing 4 times a week, mostly rock and roll, but we did everything. This was mostly clubs (we were a house band), along with weekly wedding receptions. I also played pipe organs (the real deal) for Weddings and several times every Sunday in local churches for 5 years.

I take my music very seriously and have more gigs under my belt than I can count.

I currently use a Hammond SK2 along with several MIDI E-Mu Proteus 2000 sound modules. I do favor the Hammond B3 / Leslie sound.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, just ask. If you know of anybody that may be interested, please forward them the link for this page.
