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.
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 wherever people like their Swing Music a little spooky.
Upright Bass, Guitar, &/or Vocals with….

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 1950’s Rhythm & Blues ensemble. From 2 Beat Stomps to 4 on the floor Jive!
