ABOUT

I have been playing bass for over forty years. My roots are with the blues. For many years I worked with the Mercy Street Band, producing two CDs, Blue Light and the Long Road Home. You can hear some of these tracks on SoundTrack: User 300718522.
I recently played with a band called: Madz & the Ladz. You can listen to some material at:

I am looking for musicians who want to do more Bluesy material. Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, others. I like the idea of taking a song and making it our own. As a musician, I see my roll as the pulse that holds the band together. My ideal band would be: guitar, bass, keyboards & drums. You can also throw in a sax player.

Influences

My influences in music go all the way back to the late 1960's. I moved through Rock like everyone else, playing with local bands. By the 1990, I grew tired of Rock and was listening to Jazz & Classical music. In the early 2000's, I formed a band with some old friends. The band was called Mercy Street. We played mostly Blues with a jazz/rock mix.
