Starting in 1964, sparked by the Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, I learned how to play the guitar. Quickly building a repertoire of the popular songs of the era, I was often invited to perform at family gatherings and school and church functions at first, then at house parties, school events and dances and later at coffee houses, pubs, parties and local clubs while at college in Miami, Fl and the NJ/PA/NY tri-state area. Since that time I have been honing my skills in a wide variety of settings and venues.
Throughout my career I have either performed solo, maintained my own band or been a member of established Dance, Wedding/Banquet, Corporate Function and Show Bands performing at Nightclubs, Banquet Facilities, Hotels and Casinos and in concerts at Theme Parks, County Fairs, and Concert Halls from Maine to Miami.
I have now somewhat returned to my “roots” as I am back to performing solo, playing the acoustic guitar and singing popular songs from a wide variety of musical genres.
