ABOUT

I'm primarily a guitarist and singer who tends to lean more toward older music. I'm not talking 70s and 80s, I'm talking more 40s and 50s.

I like old Rock N Roll, honky tonk country, western swing, and folk music of the 60s. Jazz from the 20s to 50s. Cowboy music from the era of Autry and Rogers.

I play country styles from the days of Bob Wills and Spade Cooley up to the outlaw movement, and anything after I'm not as big on.

I'd love a band that could pull off a bit of the 50s and 60s sensibilities of Country, where it blended Rock N Roll and Pop seamlessly. Country musicians kind of did a bit of everything. I'd love to be able to do a Ray Price number one moment and then go right into a jazz standard or a rowdy Chuck Berry tune. Listen to a Bob Wills transcription from the 40s and tell me you don't hear the makings of what would be standard with Chuck Berry. Buck Owens and Johnny Cash weren't only played on the country stations.
