ABOUT

Born and raised in NJ, I began playing guitar when I was 16 gravitating to the likes of the Beatles, Bon Jovi, Warrant, Extreme, Skid Row, Tesla, Enuff Z’Nuff, Steve Vai, Ozzy, Savatage, TSO and the like. I have frequented and supported the NY / NJ music scene for over 30 years and can always be found sitting in with the local area talent, playing at area open mics for fun and for the last 2yrs playing Rhythm and 2nd lead guitar in the band Thunderstruck. An infectious personality with a passion for music, I love to have fun, enjoy performing and interacting with an audience. Aside from musicanship I bring a strong loyal following and business minded focus that ensures we grow as a group and are compensated fairly based on market demand. I will play most any style of music and song for that matter that keeps the crowd engaged, dancing, spending money and having fun.

I am seeking new opportunities that fit my drive, dedication to playing out and entertaining while maintaining a high degree of musicianship. Solid Frontman with Strong Vocals is a must....
