Time Out! - August 9, 2011

I have taken some time off due to some family tragedies and to upgrade my musical skills.
I will be performing live again very soon!

Performance! - April 16, 2010

I will be doing a solo performance at a back yard barbecue In Gulf Port Florida on Sunday April 18,2010.
It is basically a gathering of fellow musicians and we all get to perform three songs.
The food is grilled and killed by Ms.Goody's husband Mike.
Mike is an avid hunter so there will be plenty of deer burgers,pulled pork,as well as regular burger's and hot dog's for the less adventerous appetities.
I went last year as well and had a great time.
A great gathering of friends and fellow musicians.

Catch Up! - March 30, 2010

I've been behind for a while due to some life changing circumstances but life is back on track now.
Along with performing music I am now doing video's os some of the local area bands.
The songs are not quite ready for a second cd just yet.
For some unknown reason my recorder won't record.
Until I can get my recorder fixed or get a new one things are on hold for now.
I still have plenty of music to work on I just can't record anything.
Life is good!

Video's! - January 11, 2010

I bought myself a video camera and have been using some of my musician friends as guinea pigs.
In the very near future I will be posting a video or two of me on you tube.

Happy Holidays! - December 21, 2009

Happy Holidays everyone!
After the first of the year I will be heading into the studio to start my second cd,Road Songs.

Video Camera! - November 21, 2009

After using my new Flip video camera I decided to buy an adult sized video camera with more recording time.
The Flip is a great little camera for the price but not enough recording time for my needs.
I want to do a full performance video not just one or two hours.

Video! - November 12, 2009

I finally bought a video camera so now I can record and put some video's up on You Tube etc.
I am hoping to have the first video up by the nend of this year or first part of 2010.

I am cleaning and organizing this week so I can start recording.I have bass and lead parts to figure out before I head to a real studio. Pre production work!

Hectic! - October 6, 2009

With my mother having so many health issues this summer it certainly has been an overly busy one.
I've written three new songs in the past three weeks and I am currently working on a fourth one.

New Band! - March 21, 2009

I joined Scotty Lee & The treble Hooks Band as a Bass Player.
Great musicians to work with plus I get paid when we play out.
My friend Kevin is slowly recovering from the stroke he had two months ago.After the Benefit we had for Kevin two weeks ago his spirits have really picked up and he is working very hard in rehab to get his body parts to working normally again.

Benefit Success! - March 10, 2009

The benefit for Kevin was a complete success.
The best part was that Kevin was able to be there for most of the benefit.
Watching that big smile while he was sucking on a Captain Morgan & ginger ale
was a real treat.
Kevin has come a long way but has a long way to go yet.

Kevin's Benefit! - March 2, 2009

The Benefit for my friend,Kevin Thomas is Sunday March 8th at the Ringside Cafe,2451 Central Avenue in St.Petersburg,Florida.
Jay Kiernan,Steve Arvey & myself wrote a song for Kevin called Friends that we will perform at the beginning of the benefit.

Kevin Benefit! - February 16, 2009

My friend and fellow musician Kevin Thomas was hit with a stoke about a month ago.
A benefit for Kevin is on March 8th that I am priveleged tp be a part of.

This Sucks! - January 12, 2009

A very close friend/mentor had a stroke and is in the hospital. Kevin is paralyzed on his right side and as a professional musician this just really sucks for him.
I don't know if or how much he will be able to come back from this but I am going to do what I can to help.
