ABOUT

I've been in casual, weekend bands and a few club bands since I was 16. Horn bands are my most favorite (2 horns including me & up). If the band is playing dance music then the horns need to be contributing to the show & creating energy (standing still in dance bands is not my style). Weaknesses: not a good soloist and my background vocal chops are really rusty, but I've got a good ear and a lyric tenor range for decent blending. My bari playing is very strong either in a section or doubling bass lines to add the edge and that characteristic bari sound.
