While in College , my band “The Spindrift”
played at a “Good Guys” dance at the Oceanside High School. Neil Diamond performed at the same dance as did Tommy James and the Shondelles.
I provided music for the 9 AM mass each Sunday at the Sacred Heart Church in Island Park , New York where I played the church organ.
Later, I led a children’s choir at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Woodbridge, Connecticut. I selected music in keeping with the liturgy of the mass and played guitar, acoustic piano and keyboard synthesizer .
I organized another children’s choir and provided liturgical music for the choir using the Korg i3 piano keyboard at St Vincent Ferrier Church in Naugatuck Connecticut where I planned and played music for Sunday Mass.
I joined “The Companions”, a Christian Music Group . We performed at
various churches, playing songs having praise and worship themes.
I have composed, sang, played, and recorded a small number of original songs to share with my 5 grandchildren. I have made some of these available for sale on the iTunes Apple Music store as well as on (link hidden) . You can hear "Robinson Pond" which is one of my copyrighted songs written for my grandchildren, on this gigsalad promotion.
I am a member of a Contemporary Music Choir in New Hampshire and the Musical Director of the Rainbow Theater Group in Manchester New Hampshire, now calling itself the "United Stars" since 2016 .
