Band to Join, Vocalist - Tenor, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Saxophone, Keyboard.


Experienced in all genres to some degree. Last full band project was from 2013-2020 in the Upstate party band Hot As A Pepper. Won Best Musical Entertainment 2017. Have done studio work in past. Trained on trumpet for 8years. Probably couldn't blow one now,haha! But 2 years after starting trumpet is when I started taking drums back in 1974. Left HAAP on own accord for different reasons. 1) do not want to play as much as HAAP performed yearly. 2) want to get back to playing more of a variety of music. Not looking for extremely busy schedule. Prefer in ear monitor situations. Do not want to be in a overly LOUD environment. It's not necessary! Good equipment is key. And a good tech person as well. Not really looking to do the small club scene anymore. Corporate,private events,weddings,etc. preferred.

Grew up listening to funk,rock,blues,country and jazz. All classic rock artists as well as funk artists of the 70's/80's. Prefer contemporary jazz when listening to this genre. If it grooves, rocks, or both at the same time-------GREAT!!!!!! I have an open mind about original music. Love collaborating.
