ABOUT

I believe I'm a dynamic solid pocket timekeeper not a lot of flashy sticking I fill in Controled mashing type style to accentuate finesse playing all encompassed I played in an original band for the better part of 25 years toured nationally EMI and Enigma/ Capitol. I feel I've continued to improve as my play has seasoned over the years l feel my best is ahead I've been in limbo with some small projects four five over the years but have decided to step up my game again I'd like to do some super original, I'm hearing a lot of this new age funky rocking Island reggae that is emerging .The groove to me feels more of a downbeat Rock groove as opposed to traditional reggae groove ...this is right up my alley. I have one hell of a guitarist who is even a nicer guy. I'm 52 he is 30 I've known him 15 years very well now He is very committed to his craft paying his dues went to College, now he works full time. Plays in his very cool original project and a part time cover band with his father. He also pretty much will join in with anyone. I would certainly will consider another guitar if they will consider the same. More importantly synthesizer electric Organ pianist, bassist... male or and female vocals I hope your patient... I am ..this could take awhile to put all the right people together. Oh, did I mention please bring a song writing skill set and or material so we can collaborate styles. Oh I forgot to mention, having said all that, I will consider right touring or soon-to-be musical opportunity that may come my way.
