ABOUT

While I still perform with some bands, I also provide sound and lights for several local bands doing small to Medium Shows. One of the bands I have been doing sound for has disbanded so I am looking to expand my clientele. Message me if you are in need of a experienced engineer who understands the needs of musicians to perform at their very best. I have many years experience with IEM's as well.
My main PA consists of RCL (Top of the line) tops with 15" sub bottoms running at ~4K watts. Enough for about 300 people. Small venues, parties & outdoor fests. Sennheiser, Shure, Audix & ATK microphones. 32 channel digital mixer with 14 mixes available. Multi-track live recording of shows also available.

My main influences are Blues, Rock & have played lots of Pink Floyd. As well as some Rockabilly and new wave Jazz. I play the Alto & Tenor Saxophones, MIDI Wind Controller (Yamaha WX5) for other monophonic sounds. I also consider myself a decent vocalist in the Tenor Alto range.
I have performed in front of very large crowds. Mostly with the Pink Floyd Tribute, Think Floyd USA.
I am not interested in playing with a horn section at the moment. For the most part, I have been the lone Saxophone & EWI soloist in most bands I have played with and enjoy that role.
I have also run sequences, click tracks and Video for shows.

I am a gear head. Love to have the latest and greatest. From either my personal gear or on the PA / monitor side. I also enjoy helping others that aren't so much into knowing the proper signal chain and or gain structure in either their own personal gear or PA and Monitor requirements.
I also play a mean tambourine and Cowbell.
