ABOUT

A deep love and appreciation for all types of American music, especially rock, country, blues, funk, bluegrass, and rockabilly.

My preference is to play in a band with a keyboard player (any combination of piano, electric piano, Hammond organ, synth, etc.) and am open to either starting a band or joining an existing one that is looking for a guitarist like me. Anyhow, any keys players who read this please give me a call or text!
(507) 351-0878

I live in Omaha and work in Lincoln, so either joining or starting a project based in either town or somewhere between would likely work. Laid back personality, positive attitude, enthusiastic, experienced, decent quality gear, quick learner, hard worker, dependable transportation, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you!
