So you want to read a little about me and my life???

Well I started in music at a very young age. I believe around the age of 6 playing a variety of musical instruments starting with violin. I always enjoyed music class in grade school and high school immensely. During my school years, I learned to play numerous instruments from ukulele in grade 5-6 to almost ALL typical school band instruments during high school.

From then on, I was in love with music and all varieties of it. From being raised on Merle HaggardClassic Country and Creedence Clearwater Revival, all the way to the sounds of Skrillex and the genres of House and EDM music of the 2000's, it was for me. It has always been my escape from this tragic world we live in.

As I got older, I began my life as a DJ in the dance clubs of the 80's starting at the Queensway Hotel in St. Catharines, Ontario and went from there. Recording studios (Prodigy Audio) and broadcasting were next in my life.

I have also did many stints playing in numerous bands with the main one being the 50's Connection.  We were a Motown and Elvis Impersonation band.  We featured 11 of us in the band.  The band leader, Rob Delgaty, asked me to join them as a soundman. From there it  ended in me doing sound for the band as well as being the bass player, backup vocalist and sound engineer when in the studios. To listen to our demo CD, please follow this link. Prior to the 50's Connection, I spent numerous years playing with "Elvis Little" from Niagara, Ontario. From then on I enjoyed that life as long as the wife was happy and let me.

As we move to current times, I furthered my love of music by playing guitar (see picture to the right) at the "Day of A Thousand Musicians" music festival in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I have played there every year starting with year one.

I have now joined the team here at "Hall of Fame Music Radio" and I love it!
