ABOUT

I am a 37 y.o. musician who has played in several local bands in the last 25 years. I began my musical journey by playing the piano/keyboards in church. I quickly learned (with no lessons) how to play the latter instrument plus drums; bass guitar; electric guitar; slide guitar. I recently left a band due to them not playing much - maybe twice a month. I am looking for something more regular and with better pay.

You can catch me mostly on FB. Just look up my name and the same picture of Elvis Presley that I use here will pop up somewhere during your search. I never knew that there were other people with my same name on FB! LOL! I'm very easy to get along with and work with and I enjoy playing music, period! I grew up on the sounds of older country and Elvis Presley, who became my main vocal influence. Back on July 17, 2008, a band I was with at the time named, "Irons In The Fire", from Hayesville, NC opened up two shows for Marty Stuart - and I was in HEAVEN the entire time! I had my picture taken with Clarence White's legendary guitar that has the first B-Bender.

I love playing live music - seeing the reaction of the crowd to your music is AWESOME! My dream, although a little late in life for me, is to be in a touring band. I love to travel!
