My main instrument is the lead guitar, I have played in local bands since High School (1980). I started playing trumpet in the 70's but eventually learned you can't sing and play a trumpet. I've been playing in public since the 1980's. I was a sit-in guitarist in Germany in the late1980's, performing country standards at US military bases. I came back to the US and played more country and classic rock in Indiana. In the mid 1990's I moved to Arizona and had a variety band that was very popular in Glendale (next to Luke AFB). I am interested in performing regularly. I can do sit in work on lead/rhythm/bass guitar or on the piano. Just send me a message if you need a temp.
