Over the years I've played in a number of different bands: Blues, Post-Punk Modern, Pop, Experimental/Found Sound, Tom Waits Tributary ("everybody row!").
Lately, I've been performing under as the RubBER biscuit Revue, a loose conglomeration of musical friends which has included my former bandmate, Suzie Richmond (Keyboard); Kevin Usler (guitar) & his brother Keith (drums and spoons): Ray Kula (guitar and Mandolin) and, currently, Mike Stave (fiddle), Steve K. (guitar) and Joel Easton (guitars).  Mostly, it's a solo gig for me, with these other folks sitting in.  I play a bluesy mix of Tom Waits, my own material, and traditional blues & folk standards.
I play guitar, harmonica and I sing, tho I try not to sing anymore than is absolutely necessary.
