Good question. I'm originally from Carpentersville, Illinois, and I now reside in the greater metropolitan Scales Mound, Illinois, area. I've been playing music out in clubs for nearly 40 years now. Yikes. My first love is blues, especially thirties and forties styles. I also play a variety of other traditional forms of American music, including twenties Tin Pan Alley and jazz, bluegrass, early country, cowboy, and whatever else strikes me. I do gigs around Northern Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Starting this summer I'll also be performing on the Riverboat Twilight three days a week, during their cruises from LeClaire, Iowa to Dubuque. I also occasionally play with my blues band, as well as doing gigs with other musical friends. I have a new CD available for sale, all blues and all originals, check it out in my store. I'll be adding other cool stuff as time goes on, stay tuned!
