ABOUT

I have minimal scene experience (around 12 times) but I have been playing almost every day for 30 years and developed over time the necessary skills to play comfortably in front of people. I used to jam with a Jethro Tull tribute band after their practice sessions in the 90s. We created a lot of experimental psychedelic rock for fun. Then a newborn baby and a career in IT happened, but I kept playing. After years of playing over MP3s, I decided to join a band to play live music with real people more often.
