I am available to play live in a wide variety of settings for your special event. While I am working to assemble and record with my dream band, I have good musicians I can call on, playing various styles, from duos to full band performances. Know someone who is getting married? Tell them about my site!
I’m excited to announce that I am beginning a collaboration with the amazing Seattle guitarist, Michael Powers (michaelpowersmusic.com). We are going to record a CD, one tune at a time. He will record tracks at his home studio, then send me mp3 files, wherever I am, and I will lay down flute to complete the tunes. Then, the completed tunes will go up on my online music store. When we have enough material for a CD, it will get packaged and be available online on both of our web sites, and at gigs that we will do together. Maybe Vegas, perhaps a cruise ship, an extended run in St. Tropez… who knows. Michael currently does 250 to 300 shows a year, both solo and with his band, in the greater Seattle area and beyond.
This project will be a mix of original and familiar music. Though we have pretty well mapped out the tunes we will do, if you have a song that you would love to hear, we might consider it.
We expect the first tune to be ready in 2 or 3 months. Michael and I first played together at Seattle’s Mardi Gras in 1977. The only tunes we knew in common were John Mayall’s “Room To Move”, and Bach’s “Bouree”, a la Jethro Tull. We plan to do these tunes on the CD, for old times sake.
I want to thank Michael for his enthusiasm. I feel that this is going to be a great project.
Greetings Fellow Musicians…
I am in the process of forming a new band. The instruments I desire are keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, cello, and a female vocalist. You should have the ability to read music at a good level, a good ear, and be versatile in styles ranging from jazz, blues, folk, rock, ethnic, reggae, and more.
Also, the ability to tour for extended periods. For more information, please email me.
