Classically-trained. Jazz-experienced. But my real forte is being that “everything-for-everybody” cover band guy…all styles, all genres…whatever the occasion requires.
Over the past 30 years, I played with literally hundreds of Denver’s finest musicians. As a Utah-grown Mormon farm-boy, the Denver music scene was SERIOUS culture shock. In spite of my very “white-bread” upbringing, I spent the late 80’s and early 90’s playing funk, R&B, soul and jazz in mostly black bands. From my very first night in an all-black nightclub in the rough-and-tumble 5-Points neighborhood in Denver, audiences RAVED about my ability to “…Take it to CHURCH, BROTHA!” For better or worse, I discovered the SOUL was in my blood.
Starting in 1996, I joined forces with two of Denver’s best events and entertainment brokers, playing with a variety of bands (Soul-X, Syndicate, Sudden Impact, Moments Notice Orchestra, Jakarta, Soul School, Chase ‘n’ the Dream, and MANY more) at Colorado’s finest events…including “warming-up” the 65,000-strong crowd at President Obama’s 2012 campaign visit, Denver Broncos team Christmas parties, the 2008 Superbowl NFL Commissioners Ball, numerous parties for political dignitaries (Denver Mayors Pena, Webb, and Hancock, Colorado Governors Owens, Ritter, and Hickenlooper, US Senator Bennet, and the Democratic National Convention), dozens of Fortune500 companies, and literally HUNDREDS of high-profile weddings in Aspen, Vail, Telluride, Colorado Springs, Jackson (WY) and, of course, Denver.
Back home in Utah since 2014, I’m proud and honored to now be a part of CERTIFIED, having a ball making some of my favorite music with some of my favorite musician friends…Thanks guys ‘n’ gals!!
