I have been a Livermore resident since 1985, and with the support and encouragement of my wife and best friend Nancy, 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 3 Steves Winery. 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 performed with them annually through 2019 at the summer concerts 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 for over a decade with my daughter Audrey, an extremely talented musician and accomplished vocalist, and in recent years, 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 added music styles 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.
I have played guitar as part of the Music ministry at St. Micheals and St. Charles Borromeo Catholic churches since since 1996.
