Mostly about the music...

 I was raised in the West-end of Toronto. I took my first music lesson ( lap-steel) when I was 8 years old. I enjoyed music but I thought I was going to be a professional hockey player so concentrated on sports while in school.
 
 It wasn't until I was teaching school that I started to take more of an interest in performing music. I was about 27 at the time. I had always envied those people who could sing and play guitar at campfires etc. To do this was my original goal. I never thought that I would be able to  perform with a band on stage but it eventually happened >>>>>.
 
 

I have played in 3 bands over the years: The Racqueteers, Rebel Hill and most recently Hawk's Nest. We play in the Toronto-Hamilton Ontario area doing country and rock&roll, both covers and originals.
