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 as I get time.

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.
