Carpenter’s Cross (all original Christian rock & blues) “Clark and the Ex-Pats” (Buffett, CCR and Marley covers) “Tetelestai” (leader of his church based band) – (Guitar, vocals)

I just love playing! I played in some very forgettable local bar/hair bands back in 70’s and 80’s. I’ve played guitar for a bit over 40 years, and have added mandolin, bozouki, fiddle and bodhran over the past decade. I currently front a band called Carpenter’s Cross (all original Christian rock & blues), am a member of a trio called “Clark and the Ex-Pats” (Buffett, CCR and Marley covers) and lead our church based band called “Tetelestai.” None of these are commercial ventures…we play for benefits, fundraisers, worship and just for fun. Haven’t made a dime off any of them in five years and that’s exactly how I like it. I love almost all kinds of music (sorry and no offense, rap and opera are not on that list!). Another reason I was intrigued with this group is that the older I get, the more I find I have to learn, and I’d welcome any opportunities to jam with/learn from other musicians.
