ABOUT

Professional guitarist / back-up vocals; 50 years experience; music degree; studio musician; excellent ear - can play most covers very close to the original (also read charts). Quick study; hard working team player - not a "hired gun". Worked with two separate groups that advanced to the state finals in national band talent search competitions.

Enjoy performing with quality musicians for high profile gigs/festivals/private parties. I love performing for live audiences and truly enjoy working to achieve a professional sound and quality performance - plus have fun in the process! Prefer classic rock, blues, oldies, jazz. Other instruments include bass guitar, drums and keyboard.
