I took lessons when I was 13 played rock and blues till 19 then came the Viet Nam War. Four years later came back home I met a Jazz guitar player and took some lessons and it got me started into jazz. I tried to get gigs doing jazz but end up back in rock. 1970 my busy family life kept me from doing much music.
14 Years later, sitting in church during praise and warship I was lead to get a guitar again and bought some cheep guitar. After some time I got to play in that praise & warship band and did so for a few of years. In 2000 I bought a PC software called Band In A Box. At first I did it just for fun but by 2004 I was really enjoying my virtual band and started to get into jazz on a more serious level. In 2007 I was again playing in a great praise & warship team.I left my job to do music full time. I have been blessed with good jobs in hotels, restaurants, corporate events & parties. I found many people love the old standers in a light jazz format mixed with Latin jazz and some blues/rock. I do play with a band, bass drum & guitar we get a full sound for a trio but most of the jobs are one man gigs.
