I've been performing as a drummer professinally since age 9. I appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, and 'Wink' Martindale's Dance Party tv show, KTLA, Channel 5, in 1962 as drummer with the then semi-famous 'Continentals' Rock/Pop band. Both in High School (1963), and college, I gained Big Band experience with Dick Charles Big Swing Band (Dick Charles Music, Glendale, CA), and Dick Slavitt Band, Burbank, CA in the 1960s. Originally from Chicago, IL, I performed with numerous Club Jazz groups, including Charles White's Quintet on Chicago's North Side. In 1988, I formed 'All That Jazz' a Jazz Trio, to a 17 pc Big Band. Currently still performing in LA/OC. Venues from Disneyland to private parties.
