Making the music I love for people that appreciate it is an amazing job. I’ve been very fortunate to play with many of the best early jazz & swing style musicians in the country. Digging into the history of the art is a passion that helps me bring integrity to every song my groups play.

img_9932I lead groups, I sideman in more groups, and I connect events with the groups they need. Frontman, Sideman, & Middleman for occasions that call for a healthy understanding of 1920’s thru 1950’s Jazz, Swing, and Rhythm & Blues.

Bandleader for The Hollywood Howlers, a group of select professional musicians that I cull from the finest bands to bring music to film, television, & events. Specializing in the music from the 1920’s thru 1950’s we can customize our performances to what you want.


Bandleader for Marquis & The Rhythm Howlers performing the darker side of music with original music & a selection of the finest songs in the macabre style.

As a sideman I bring energy & thump to every gig. I’m a proponent of a big natural tone coming through my bass rig, befitting any 1920’s Jazz or String Band through to a 1950’s Rhythm & Blues ensemble. From 2 Beat Stomps to 4 on the floor Jive!
