I have performed live music in every conceivable context over the past forty years. Most of my professional engagements consist of concerts, dances, night clubs, parties, theater, benefits, cruises and recording sessions either as an accompanist or a featured player. I have performed thousands of gigs in my long musical career.

I was in the house band at the legendary Belle Star Saloon in Colden N.Y. and the Bona Vista in Buffalo in the early seventies. I played all over Los Angeles and Hollywood, California in the late seventies. In the eighties I settled into life in Western New York. My
performances since consist of regular area appearances at venues and events
throughout the Niagara Frontier. Along with performing, I teach private guitar
lessons at my home studio in Lackawanna, NY.

A career in music takes a lot of dedication, perseverance, hard work, and
a little good luck. I have had many good moments on stage with some
amazingly talented musicians. Opening for, and playing with, world class blues,
folk and rock musicians such as; Peter Frampton, Greg Allman, KoKo Taylor,
Junior Wells, John Hammond Jr., Spencer Davis, Roy Buchannan, David Bromberg,
the Earl Scruggs Revue, were inspirational moments for me. But it has been my
association with my fellow musicians at the local level that has by far inspired
and motivated me...
