The Roadhouse Jukes came about from a friendship I have had for over 30 years. We have played together for a very long time and decided it was time to make our own music. The writing, arranging, rehearsing and recording of this CD took about 2 years. There is alot of other material that didn't make it onto the album.
From time to time, when we are invited. Concerts only. Performing live is the best.
I have been a composer, bassist, and guitarist for a very long time. I have many influences. The influences that I have drawn on for The Roadhouse Jukes have been Led Belly, Lightin' Hopkins, Leo Kotke, Son House, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robin Ford, John Hammond, B.B. King, Albert Collins, Howlin' Wolf, Ray Brown and too many more to mention.
I play a Martin HD-28, a Fender FR49 resophonic, a Fender Jazz 5-string Bass, and a Fender 4-string Jazz Special Bass.
The community of music brings us together. Let's all celebrate that!
