Retired from the company after 38.94 years and I can't complain. I am now semi retired and concentrating on my fishing, boats, music, concerts, club dates, and the organizations that I belong to. I am also committed to helping the community and doing what I can for those in need. A big thank you to Christian Cowboy Balladeers, Palouse Country Cowboy Poets Association, and the Western Music Association, they help me to help others. Thank you and God Bless
Band/artist history
I have a 40+ years of playing in just about every venue that you can imagine. I am now involved in promoting Cowboy Gatherings and Festivals drop me a line if you or your community is interested in having a cowboy gathering.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I love all the venues that I play(honky tonks, clubs, BBQs parties). I now help host two radio shows on KRLC 1350AM Lewiston, Idaho, in the last few years I was asked to join the The Western Music Association. I love the Cowboy Gatherings and the Award shows. I am currently president of the Northwest Chapter of the WMA. I am also involved with the Polouse Cowboy poets and I am VP of that orgenization. I am also president of the Christian Cowboy Balladeers.
Your musical influences
I was 14 when I got my first guitar. Bob Dylan was an early study so was Berl Ives, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Luther Perkins, Chet Atkins, George Jones, Don Gibson, Ernest Tubb. I love rock-a-billy guitar & Chuck Berry riffs playing as well as some of the classical runs.My first love was and still is country & western music.
What equipment do you use?
I perform acoustically when I am able. I love the raw sound with no other musicians or sound to distract from the artists own presentation. I also love the electronica of playing full out in a honky tonk with my toys to a dance crowd. I use harmonizers, minidisks, I play my parts live (vocals,guitar, harmonica). I also perform with a five piece band when the money is there.
