ABOUT

Ocean Cnty/ Band-Mix Newbie (Not all events captured-few pics)

Seek group depending on project/gig commitment. Accustomed to fairs/ benefit concerts/ centers/ halls/ parks & celebrational home gatherings (on stage or as a musical minstrel amongst all crowds/ youth/ mentally/ physically challenged (equipped with theatrical wears) ... also college play/ Yasgaer Farms/ college radio, etc.

Currently w/ 3-4 groups sparsely until i find a committed project; a) mthly percussion & keys improv recordings, b) exploring voice w/ wkly or bi-wkly amp'd modern hits & blues since July (trio), c) exploring popular uplifting "world folk" hits (acoustic & amp'd - trio). d) mystery :)

Musicians say my percussion rhythm is rare to find (guitar/ to basically any instrument hand held. I play "rolling finger keys" (my lingo) - best at improv - reads music.

Play different genres/ venues/ instruments. A bit of a creative perfectionist for group to excel and mindfully respectful with everything. Wears different hats (blends - working with different walks of life).

Current urge to sing/ explore voice (bluesey, improv songs/ stories). Prefer set warm up combo's to: 1) hand drums w/harmonica or 2) keyboard w/harmonica or 3) rhythm guitar w/harmonica or 4) singing w/any percussion or rhythm guitar (& not in any particular order)... to compliment or lead.

Enjoy mimicking popular hits w/own style: folk, classic rock, fusion, blues, alternative, funk, world, sacred tribal, cover/ tribute, jazz, celtic; creating songs while singing female singers (too many to mention). Inspired singing: cafe/ lounge, true blues "story telling" & creating own mix to compliment or lead. I like diversity - playing different styles (& welcome feedback-learn quick-naturally talented).
