Playing music, drumming, promoting shows, stage managing listening ot all types of music. The music of the Grateful Dead, and extended family bands are what makes my heart feel happy, and seeing love in people eyes and the smell of Autumn winds.


About Me

Late blooming musician, I am now quite fixed on playing improvised music coming from multiple musical influences.
Blues, jazz, bluegrass, R & B/ soul, country rock, Folk, and even classical which is important for my 'soul' too.
I play in 2 bands at this time but am looking to start a third this beginning of spring of '09. (jazz/rock/R&B/mix)
One of the bands plays Dead and were called DUSTCOVER, and have been jammin' on Dead occasionally for 14 years. I am 58, a Pisces with my B'day being on the same day as Jack Kerouacs, whom I never met, but I did have the opportunity to bring many of his Beat companions to read in Vancouver (Ginsberg, McClure, Burroughs, Corso, Di Prima, Anne Waldman and after years of coaxing Kesey, he almost came but...he joined Jerry for eternity. had Bobby and Wasserman with Rick Danko and Jorma Kaukonen up here for a SEVA benefit back in '90.
I organized some of the later Be-ins in Vancouver's Stanley park.
I am involved with the Tribal scene up here and really enjoy the loving vibes of the Tribal Harmonix family and although I am an elder on the that scene it's all great.

Looking for

I would love to get a copy of anything done at the free concerts the Dead (with the Airplane), gave in Montreal in Summer (July) 1967. I was at both outdoor shows downtown and at Expo 67 but have never found any of the music from that day.
I have also decided to 'Intention' on being in love, opening my heart to love.
I also want to play music at the Fillmore someday.
I look for Peace always too.
