Born and raised in Napa, California until I was 13, I moved back to Napa in 2006 after a moving around the states for 27 years. 18 of those years were spent in Fresno, California learning the music business and playing in my own original music band and two successful 60s tribute bands. One of the tribute bands was the opening act for such legendary groups as The Turtles, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Buckinghams, The Association, Spencer Davis Group, Eric Burden, Rare Earth and Herman's Hermits! It was a great experience.I've taken my guitar through Europe, the UK, the Caribbean and Central America where I have found that music truly does transcend the language barrier. I have had so many wonderful experiences through my music and have met some extraordinary people. I am happy to say that I have found paradise back in my home town of Napa, and am now privileged to be performing up and down the valley at several different venues. Life is good!
