Nothing booked at the moment.

Music

I began playing the trombone in Junior High, much to the consternation of my Father, and our neighbors………. I guess they knew I was serious about it because they would always complain that I was practicing all the time….It all led to about 25 or so years of a diverse playing career, I have had the good fortune of making music with some great ensembles.. I quit playing entirely for a while, mostly because it wasn’t fun anymore. (no room here for the complicated explanation) That only lasted a little while, and I am back playing again, and loving it almost as much as when I was a kid, just a little older and wiser now. I’ve added some links to Music related sites I like. .

Here’s some photos of me  and some musicians on gigs I have played.
