Writing and performing is something I love to do . since 2003 probably 75 to 100 gigs a year throughout northern New York state. Dinner cruises. weddings, parties, auctions, festivals, restaurants, Jamboree’s, etc... I put it my thoughts together in songs, poems, instrumentals and share them with my audience. I rarely follow the same set sequence each gig. I usually throw in tunes I have never done. I don’t run off a set list. I feel the room and go from there. My variety of music appeals to the taste most listeners. You may hear Jim Reeves followed by Stone Temple Pilots. I am grateful for having folks online or in person. My goal is a great listener experience.. If you check out a show be sure to say Hi! if you check out my stuff online say Hi!
Let me know what you think and feel free to share my music with your friends. Thanks!!!
