Songs About Stuff
After 35 years of writing music, I finally decided it was time to buckle down and put together an album and this is the result. The styles of my music range from folk, country, rock, ballads, latin, bluegrass, pop and novelty songs. I've been lucky enough to have had a little help from some old friends, including award winning musician Don Stiernberg, Greg Cahill of Special Consensus Bluegrass Band, Dave Kovnat from the Bobby Rydell Band, Kira recording artist Greg Trafidlo and many more. • Since 1966, I've performed at festivals, dinner theatres, concerts, corporate events, and hundreds of nightclubs, resorts and hotels all over the country. • I also performed on tour with The New Seekers (Georgy Girl, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing) for four years. • During my career, I've been fortunate enough to have opened the show for such greats as Paul Butterfield, Jan & Dean, Cab Calloway, the Spencer Davis Group, Bo Diddley, The Kingston Trio and many more, but probably one of my most memorable moments was singing the National Anthem at Yankee Stadium in front of 40,00 crazed baseball fans. Doing my time on the road and just the experiences of life in general were enough to plant the seeds for a few song ideas. I don't really write love songs or songs about shattered relationships. For the most part, I write story songs. Most of the stories in my songs are true, things that either happened to me or my friends and acquaintances. They're stories that I think are worth telling and I hope folks think they're worth listening to.
