ABOUT

I play piano with and now using an electric piano (Casio PX-560) which I live.

I have been a musician for more than twenty years starting with guitar in high school for five years and then moved to piano where I've been since.

I'm mostly a piano man but can add some accompaniment with different keyboard sounds to fill any holes or when things are bottoming out and also add electronic drums to liven things up

I've played in pop bands, played piano for community theater shows and dinner theater. I've also played piano in clubs to accompany male and female singers with either show tunes or the American Songbook, Covers of contemporary artists and songs of today and yesterday.
