Hometown: St. Paul
Instrument: Keyboards and Vocals, and occasional Percussionistic tendencies……
Music Background: Diddled on the Organ for 10 years in my youth. Sang in choirs and musical productions while experiencing adolescence. Formed a band in High School called Destiny, we were on the local TV talent show “Discoverama” (We did not win, not even our episode, lost out to an 8 year old baton twirler and a dance group who stunk, but I’m not bitter.) Bands include Shooze, The Paperboys, Full Circle, 100 watt jones, Rock Brigade, and a duo called The 2 Fat Bastards, the most appropriately named group I have been in.
Music Influences: Any musician that plays with flare yet simplicity and creates a magical earful.
Favorite Songs: My tastes get so diverse and what moves me is very driven by mood. I can love a song one week and be bored with it the next. But like Frenchy – I love a good polka as much as the next guy……..
Favorite Bands: Always changing, but forever my guilty pleasure – Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons
Most Memorable Musical Experience: Being called up by a cool blues band in a bar on Broadway Street in Nashville, TN to sit in for a song.
