ABOUT

I like playing with great singers. I like music with great riffs. Lots of funk, a little country. Maybe a jazz ballad or two. As long as we can put out a good "product" and those require practice and rehearsal which I'm not averse to. When you produce great music, the gratification is immediate. Which makes it all ultimately fun and loose!
