I'd like to network with other songwriters and musicians in the Virginia, D.C. and Maryland area.
I sing both lead and background vocals. Musical styles differ, from Chicago, to Doobie Brothers, to Lionel Richie, to Boz Scaggs, to Delbert McClinton, to Average White Band, to Crosby, Stills & Nash, to James Taylor.
My last band broke up several years ago. Great band with female vocalist, sax, trumpet, trombone, keyboard, bass, drums, and yours truly on guitar. I'd like to get a new band together.
I write my own music - about six originals, but nothing published yet. I write love ballads and charts in the smooth jazz genre.
I play guitar, piano/synth, and some harp. Enjoy playing funk, smooth jazz, contemporary.
I'm a former jazz guitarist with the USAF jazz band, "The Ambassadors" in Europe, and have played in bands in Pittsburgh and Northern Virginia. I currently teach guitar and piano, and currently fine-tuning several songs I wrote several years ago.
