ABOUT

Hi... Very Alive at 65! Started playing the piano at age 5. Classical at the start. Mid 60's brought my first Farfisa's Early 70's my first Hammonds with Leslies - various electric pianos - basic synths. Did the weekend "thing" for several years. 1973 - 1978 performed with one of DC's well known cover bands "TAHOKA". House band for many weeks a year at The BAYOU and the ACT IV and countless other venues. Did a One Man Band - drum machine - strong left hand keyboard bass and vocals. I love music and have been seeking a way to get back in the "biz' again after having relocated from Nashville TN this past week.
