BEGAN :: August, 1979 playing ambience music in
restaurants. I worked this type of job until 1990, playing instrumental only.
CONTINUED :: as piano bar
entertainer, working dueling piano clubs in Oklahoma City,
Augusta, GA, Savannah, GA, Jackson, MS.
I still work dueling clubs occasionally but most of my current work is solo.
OUT :: Since June, 1992 I have worked almost exclusively
overseas, usually in EUROPE and the MIDDLE
EAST. Countries worked: Poland,
Switzerland, Sweden, Norway,
Germany, Switzerland, Italy,
THE MOVE :: I have worked numerous boat jobs, including overnight
ferries (Norway-Germany, Norway-England, Denmark-Norway-Faroe
Islands-Iceland), cruise ships (Mediterranean, Caribbean, Alaska, Mississippi
River paddle boat) and some privately booked cruises, mostly in Europe. I
currently entertain on board the Wind Spirit.
IT ALL :: Diversity is my strong suit, as I frequently play
all-request shows for audiences of widely diverse ages. I've played various
roles in church music, worked as accompanist for Ballet Oklahoma, played the
oldies for mature audiences onboard the American Queen riverboat, pounded out
Rock-n-Roll and Pop standards for the boisterous Scandinavian pianobar
crowds, and performed numerous private affairs like corporate parties and
weddings ( Hey, sophisticated music for the dinner AND high-spirited
piano/vocal entertainment for the party afterwards!)
YOUR EVENT? I am frequently home in North Texas
and often available for entertainment dates.
