ABOUT

I am a versatile musician that specializes in playing a wide variety of music. My goal is to ensure any audience or group I play for get my best effort...each and every time!!!

I am constantly learning new material and adding to my extensive long list of tunes. I can customize the music I play to the booking or group I am with; whether it be a private social, a wedding, a corporate function, or anything in between.

In addition to my diversified musicianship, I can also sing lead and also quality backup harmonies. I have been told that the harmonies are an important added ability that sets me apart from other musicians.

I have included some of the pictures, videos, and audio that I have been directly involved playing.

VIDEOS:

The video samples are of me playing bass, and doing backup vocals in bands I have been involved with over the years.

MUSIC SAMPLES:

Music samples below are all live recordings. Some have been edited with my home studio (but all songs are recorded live on a stage in front of an audience).

I am playing bass in all of them except the karaoke song. I put that one in to show my range on lead vocals. I did that song on a dare (on a weekend I wasn't gigging). Weird not having a guitar in my hand.

On the other songs I am playing some filling guitar and filling lead licks in the studio edited ones, singing lead in the first four songs, and singing background vocals in all of the rest.

At this time I am looking for a Classic Rock group to play with full time.

Will be putting up some more live audio samples very soon.
