I'm retired, in my 60's.
I've played the drums in public venues (such as church socials) since age 8, began playing in bars, etc. at age 10, learned guitar and keyboards along the way, kept it up until age 35, but working days and playing nights was no longer fun, so only played occasionally at home.
After retirement a few years ago, started practicing seriously again, my wife bought me a great Taylor acoustic, and I just love to play and sing.
On all my recordings I play all parts, no backing tracks. Bass is a setting on my keyboard.
Currently I have three standing weekly gigs (rhythm axe and vocals only), one in Springfield MO, and two in Branson, MO. I'm not part of the official Branson music scene, but I meet a lot of visitors from all over the country there.
In between gigs, I like to record new songs that I am adding to my playlist. I appreciate those who take the time to listen and comment.
