I grew up in N.W. Washington state and pursued music with honors through school and beyond. I play piano, trumpet, valve- bone and sing on my solo gigs. My favorite generation of music is the 60's and 40's swing.I enjoy well written tunes from The Young Rascals, B,S, & T, Motown and all those one-hit wonders of the late 60's.
You may notice the form of my tunes stems from that sound.

I have for the last 15 years been on the road performing 200-250 gigs per year. My wife, Valli has booked them all. Mostly one-hour concerts. 2020 was 3 gigs-with Covid. I've been recording original songs and I received ASCAP royalties in Ireland. I have collaborated on a short film with Bob Yin in San Diego. You can hear my songs on Broadjam or TAXI. I play real drums, keyboard, bass and strings, piano, organ and EP on my VOX 73, trumpet and Valve-bone.
March 2018.. road gigs around the U.S. as good as ever. Have cut back to around 150 gigs in a year. Just bought a magnificent Vox Continental 73 key. Mostly hang in San Diego in the winter and Port Angeles, Wa. in the summer. Salud.
