I have been a Livermore resident since 1985. With the support and encouragement of my wife and best friend Nancy, I became a member of its vibrant music community in 2009.
I currently perform as a solo artist at venues such as Cuda Ridge Winery, Wood Family Vineyards, Del Valle Winery, First Street Wine Company, Shadow Puppet Brewery, and Swirl On The Square. I also perform at weddings, corporate events, and private parties.
In 2009 I joined the legendary Tri-Valley band "Tommy and the 4 Speeds", and have performed with them annually at summer concerts until 2019 at Pleasanton's Wayside Park. You can learn more about the 4 Speeds by clicking THIS LINK to the band website.
I have been thankful to perform with my daughter Audrey, an extremely talented musician and accomplished vocalist, and in recent years, with her husband Dean Austin Mayor, yet another wonderful musician and saxophonist. They helped to expand our repertoire beyond my historical influences such as the Beatles, 60's - 70's acoustic rock, and the singer - songwriter genre. The music styles we perform now include folk, pop, country, theater, and jazz. We also perform a few of my original songs from time to time.
I appreciate the support that my son Ben and his wife Claire Henderson provide, as well as their occasional cameo appearances as their graduate studies allow.
In October 2021, I returned to the Music ministry at Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, and again serve as a guitarist at the 7:30 am mass.
