ABOUT

I am a pianist/composer who wants to put together a band with the best professional musicians, get a professional booking agent, book clubs, special events, festivals. Reviewers compared me in my previous band to Dr. John, Billy Joel and Ben Folds. Currently I am working on putting together a combo that plays everything from gypsy jazz and saloon piano to contemporary jazz plus my original compositions. Also working on a CD of original material. Would also like to record and place music in movies, TV, etc.
