I graduated from Berklee College of Music in the late 70s and went on the road, traveling throughout the US and Canada with one of my favorite bands of all time, “September”. That band featured three of the best musicians I have ever worked with. The one and only Mr. Ron Vanaria on Bass, the Great Mr. Ron Bouchard on Vocals and Keys and the best Drummer I ever played with and one of the best there is, Mr. Joe Rizzo.
When I got off the road I started playing with a band that did gain a lot of popularity in the Boston area during the 1980s and that band was named “Struggle”. Struggle played all of the major venues in Boston during that time. We recorded an album, a 45 (how many remember them?) and we made a music video that got a lot of airplay on V66, which was the big local video channel of the time. It also got played a couple of times on MTV in 1984!

I have played thousands of gigs with many great bands and musicians, from some of the top groups in the Boston area, all the way to playing in Hong Kong, China with Herb Reed and the Platters. We did that sold out show in 2010 to more than 8,000 people! Now I am focusing on my Acoustic Duo, with Danielle Jean. Please check our schedule and come to our gigs.
