SEEKINGBand to Join, Background Singer, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Piano, Vocalist, Vocalist - Tenor.
I am primarily a singer/keyboardist, but I also play bass guitar and percussion. I have played in bands for over 30 years, both original and cover acts. My most lucrative job was playing for 7 years with the band Nite-Time out of New York City, a wedding/party band that averaged 25 gigs a year, mostly in the Tri-State area and sometimes up into New England. Currently I work with two ensembles, a doo-wop a cappella group called ShBoom and a Steely Dan tribute band based in Knoxville, TN. I am looking for any gigs with musicians local to my new hometown of Asheville, NC.

Hexagon I: Janusian
Hexagon I: JanusianThe final piece from my 10-movement chamber cycle "Hexagons." "Janusian" is scored for soprano saxophone, viola, bass clarinet, piano, chimes, timpani, and prayer bowls. The movements of "Hexagons" are numbered in reverse order, since the numbering corresponds with the sefiroth from the Tree of Life in the metaphysical system of Qabalah, and thus the journey from 10 to 1 represents a climbing of the Tree, beginning at Malkuth ("Kingdom," Earth) and finishing at Kether ("Crown," Godhead). Performed at my dissertation recital on April 7, 2017 in Ramsey Hall at The University of Georgia, Athens, GA. Featuring Caroline Halleck (soprano saxophone), Elitsa Atanasova (viola), Pedro Alliprandini (bass clarinet), Greg Hankins (piano), Scott Davis (prayer bowls), Taylor Lents (chimes), and Emily Johnson (timpani). Conducted by Shawna Pennock.
