A Few New Photos Taken On January 22, 2023
I grew up in Grandview, Missouri and after serving in the US Navy (1980-1984), I toured America as a professional musician most of my adult life. Here are some of the bands that I have been an official member of: 'Fiancé', 'Bishop Steel', 'Roxx Gang', 'Mojo Gurus', 'The Blessed Virgin Larry', 'Satisfaction' (Rolling Stones Tribute Band), 'Armure De Ruisseaux', 'Jett Blakk', and 'A Circle Of Faith'. While performing with these bands, I made incredible friendships while sharing stages coast to coast with many artists including Dr. Hook, The Kentucky Headhunters, Steppenwolf, Foreigner, Head East, George Lynch, HAGAS, Black Oak Arkansas, Ratt, Molly Hatchet, Silento, Brick Top Social Club, Jimmie VanZandt, Killer Dwarfs, Henry Lee Summer, Spread Eagle, Scatterbrain, Daisy Berkowitz and Jackyl.
(Side notes: In 2005, Rondo Music presented me with an Agile Guitars Endorsement. From 2006 to 2010 I operated UAFF News / UAFF Films online. In 2010 I attended and graduated from the New York Film Academy. In 2012, I created the music video for Dwight Yoakam's song 'Waterfall'. In 2013 I did the animation work for 'Movie On A Stick' and from 2014 to 2019 I operated a dog rescue called House Of Hound (which later became a full on animal shelter) and with the help of many great people we saved over 1000 dogs in rural Missouri! )
(2023) I'm still working with ACOF while also playing part time in a classic rock cover band called Psychodelic Caravan, doing mostly weekend shows in Missouri and Iowa. If you need a bassist, I do local shows for $130+ and out of town shows for $250+ plus expenses. Just shoot me over an email with the gig specifics. Thank you!

'I'm Killing You (unplugged)' is an acoustic version of a song I wrote and recorded with TBVL back in the day... (Photo: LogieBerry)
sidenote: I recently added this song to my live setlist and it has been getting a great response so I decide to re-release it on all major platforms.
I also wanted to announce that I'm releasing a song from my audio vault. 'Without Your Love' was a demo recorded in Florida right before Roxx Gang hired me in 1996. It was never officially released on the major platforms but is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
