    Hobbies and Interests:
    Own Recording Studio, Engineer & produce many artists.
    Grew Up in Lansdale, Penna, in the Suburbs of Philadelphia!Began playing Guitar at age 11 (1962) switching over to Bass Guitar at age 14 (1965). Started performing in COMBOS at age 13 and continued throughout Jr. High & High School. In 1970 went on the road travelling and working as Bass Player with The Dovell's, Chubby Checker & Danny & the Juniors. Working a "day" job at Eighth Street Music In Center City Philly 1970 -72, gave me fantastic opportunities to gain info & access to some of Philly's "happening" Recording Studios at that time. I had the amazing good fortune to be the "Studio" Bass player on quite a few "One Hit Wonders" that came out during 1970 -72'. The Old Cameo Parkway Studio located on South Broad Street was a VERY busy Place then and was running sessions almost around the clock! Some of those " One Hit Wonders" which I recorded on were: The original "Band of Gold" by Freda Payne, the original " Tighter and tighter" by Tommy James ( under the name,"Alive & Kickin'", The Original " United We Stand, Divided We Fall ", by The Brotherhood of Man. In 1972 I traveled with the Late Mary wells and In 1974 I had the great opportunity to travel with the O'jay's , The spinners and Percy Sledge. In 1977 I formed th EXPRESSO Dance And Show Band and still continue performing today with EXPRESSO. I have Loved the BLESSING to have been able to have a successful career as a Bass Player, and would not have traded it for anything!!!
