I come from a musical family and learned how to play clarinet and guitar in grade school. During high school, I played in several bands and eventually began playing professionally.
More recently, I've played with the Hip Swayers, whose eclectic song list includes surf, country, and rockabilly and The Gears, a 60's inspired rock group.

I like Fender Telecasters and Fender amps and Danelectro guitars (I have three of them).
My amps include a '72 Fender Vibrolux Reverb, '68 Custom Princeton Reverb, '65 Fender Bassman, and a Quilter 101 Mini Head.
