Greetings.. Lots of things are going on in the music world.. I've been on the move, playing gigs with many different bands, and lots of solo shows.. In the past few months I have had the honor of working with MOTION at the Moonshadow Tavern in Tucker, corporate gigs with the League Of Decency, and some great shows with Heaven Davis, including festivals at Underground Atlanta, Piedmont Park, and Stone Mountain Park.. I've worked with some great musicians including Dave Ellington, Bobby Mobley, Billy Burke, and Tim Nash on the Heaven Davis gigs, and all of the performances were outstanding.. I have also been playing some shows with Steel Horses at Hank and Jerry's Tavern in Conyers, and Atmosphere in Loganville.. I played some corporate functions with Moxie, and they were alot of fun.. I've had the opportunity to play many solo shows, and have picked up some weekly gigs along the way.. I even played a lunchtime concert in Albany, Ga. and met some very nice people there.. Working with Marty Kearns at Down In Deep studios was alot of fun, and I recorded a demo of song samples from my solo acoustic shows to hand out to clubs and agents.. Marty does outstanding work.. I've also been playing some gigs with my old band KNIGHT TRANE, with George Calhoon and Jimmy B.. It is a blast to work with those guys..
I have shows coming up with League of Decency, Heaven Davis, Knight Trane, and will probably be doing some gigs with Deja Vu as well.. Always check my calendar to see where I am performing..
Tuesday nights I perform solo acoustic music at Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant in the Kroger Shopping Center at the corner of Hwy. 78 and Rosebud Road, near Loganville. The crowd has really picked up, and we have a great time every Tuesday. If you live in that area, you should mark it on your calendars to come out and enjoy some great margaritas, fajitas, and your favorite tunes.. The music starts at 6:30 p.m...
Thursday nights I perform solo acoustic music at Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant on Buford Hwy. in Doraville.. I have been playing this gig for over 3 years, and the regulars keep coming back for more.. It has become an event, every Thursday night in Doraville.. Everyone comes out, including musicians, politicians, police, business men and women, families, and singles.. If you want to have a good time, and drink some GREAT margaritas, then Monterrey's in Doraville is the place to be on Thursday nights.. Music starts at 7:45 p.m..
Sunday nights I perform solo acoustic music at Hank and Jerry's Tavern on Old Salem Road in Conyers.. It is a great way to end the weekend, and it is one of my favorite things to do.. Hank and Jerry's is a neighborhood bar in Conyers, and has been there for many years.. I have played there hundreds of times over the years, and it is always alot of fun.. They really like to party on Sunday night, and I really mix up the music.. Get out of the house on Sunday night, and come party with us.. Music starts at 8:00 p.m..
I am now teaching guitar and music at 3 locations.. Music and Arts in Lawrenceville, Braswell Music in Suwanee, and All Star Music in Loganville.. I enjoy teaching at all 3 places, and I am blessed to have some great students.. I have been teaching music for over 20 years, and I consider it an honor that I never take lightly..
Check the calendar for any gig changes or additions.. I have too many gigs to list them all in the news section, so just click on the calendar for the latest updated gig schedule.. I hope you will make it out to a gig soon, and drop in and say hello..
I am blessed to be able to play with the talented bands that I perform with, and it is also a great joy to teach music.. I am very fortunate to have friends and fans that support live music, and it is something that I never take for granted.. I appreciate all of the support I have had through the years.. It certainly makes it all worth while.. God bless each and everyone of you you, and I hope to see you soon!!!
