I'm just a 56 year old cement mixer driver who gets laid off every winter for 3 months.I enjoy writing songs and recording them myself at home on my 8 track Boss BR864 recorder.It's just another one of my many hobbies.I just do it for kicks.Just laid back musical enjoyment.
I have lots of originals and collabs on my page.My originals are are true stories about me,or people I know,or how I feel about things.Collabs are all efforts of me and my Soundclick friends.Doing collabs is my favorite thing here on Soundclick.Hope ya enjoy some of the tunes.
Played in Local Bands,at taverns,weddings,benifits,4th of Jully celebrations,etc..
Also played the Rathbun Country Music Theater for a couple of years.
Used to play in local bands and also Rathbun Country Music Theater which is close to where I live.Played the usual bars,weddings,benefits,etc..
I enjoyed playing out when I did,but just got tired of the driving,unloading,setting up,then tearing down,loading back up,driving back home,and unloading again.LOL
Still play once in a while for local do'ins.
As far as special moments,back in the 80's,my flight instructor and I went to Kansas City Mo. to pick up an airplane.Brenda Lee was playing in a hotel lobby.While I was in the rest room my instructor told her I played guitar,and when I come back,she made me get up there and sing.Not such an easy task when your plasterd.LOL.
