“There's nothing like music.”
Welcome to my page!
I hope you will listen to some songs and read a few stories while you're here. I'm busier than ever these days, lots of acoustic solo performances, but also some exciting shows with my amazing Santana tribute band, Jingo, the vocal acoustic group the Differents, plus even Headsoup!
And I've been having a blast working at the Landis Theater in Vineland, NJ. Most recently, I worked as co-music director and live bassist for their production of Greenday's American Idiot, and in August I am thrilled to be doing the same for their production of Heathers, a modern cult classic with one of the best musical scores I've ever heard.
Times are good despite the Covid menace. Making music keeps me inspired.
