Thanks for visiting my page, hope you like the tunes. I'll be adding more as time allows. Everybody here are such great artists that I'm afraid my music is not as produced as most. I Play all the insturments and do all the vocals on my songs.I use a tascam 8 track DP-01fx and a WK-300 casio keyboard (I know) I have several acoustic guitars including a Martin and Fender.I also use my Tele, and P-bass on most songs.
Living in California, and the single father of three children, I started playing music back in the 70's while I lived in Bakersfield. My neighbor came from a long line of musicians that played with some of Bakersfield's most noted musicians. His father also built guitars for Mosrite and worked as a crew member on Heha. Soon as I learned a few cords, the guy had me playing in some of Bakersfield's seediest bars. I moved to Bishop in the 1980's and started playing bass in a band called The Rattlers, for the next 15 years and we played all over the Eastern side of the Sierras.We played mostly in Mammoth, and Bishop but we also played gigs in Northern Nevada, mostly fairs, casinos and other special events like Mule Days, Jim Butler days . We opened for Chris Le Doux and Michael Martin Murphy at several large venues. The Rattlers played everything from country to top40 rock and roll. I play several instruments from drums to guitars to keys to flute, none of which am I an expert.
