I’ve had an interest in all genres of music since I was very young. Blues, Motown, Big Band – 50’s, 60’s, 70’s Rock & Roll were big influences. I grew up in the Maryland/Wash D.C. area. My brother & I owned an architectural restoration company that we sold in 2007. Moved to FL in 2011 and hooked up with Billy in 2015 (a friend of 40 years). He’s been a blessing more than words could explain. Started playing the blues harmonica when I joined the Merchant Marines, played hand percussion (conga’s bongos djembe, cajon) in a Christian band at local Christian coffee houses in the late 90’s early 2000’s. I have a beautiful wife, 2 beautiful children & 2 grandchildren who love music as much as I do! I look forward to what God has in store for Front Porch Blues.
