Greetings friends. Welcome to my website. Please see the calendar page for a list of upcoming gigs and shows. I have had the good fortune of playing bass for Kansas City’s talented songwriter -Brian Ruskin and his quartet first and third Wednesdays, downtown at the Phoenix. Thanks to Matt Jones, and the staff at the Phoenix for the years of support and friendship.
It was a very busy summer this year. I was fortunate to have my bees on Sweetclover fields in Western Kansas. They produced some of the most fragrant honey I have ever tasted. I have a limited supply for sale now. Please CLICK the HONEYBEES link for more information and purchase details.
I am finished recording my newest musical work DIFFICULT MAN.
Produced with help from Charmian Rose, Max Berry, Denny Osburn, Lynn Allred, Robbie Melton, and a cast of all stars from Kansas City’s rich, musical rainbow of talent including Amanda Fish-vocals, Brandon Hudspeth-guitar, Brian Ruskin-guitar, Caleb Aldrich-tenor and bari-sax, Thomas “Freightrain” Walker-drums and of course, Max and Denny. I look forward to sitting in on the mastering session in December with Brad Vance at Red Mastering Studio. My deepest gratitude goes out to all my dear friends who have made this project possible for me to accomplish, with joy!
~Please be kind to one another. It’s a tough world out there. Showing an act of kindness for someone can change their day when they may desperately need it.~
Peace and Love to all, as we near the solstice of 2016.
