About

I have been a Livermore resident since 1985, and became a member of its vibrant music community in 2009.   With the support and encouragement of my amazing wife and best friend Nancy, I starting performing as a solo artist at venues such as Cuda Ridge Winery, Wood Family Vineyards, First Street Wine Company, Shadow Puppet Brewery, Swirl On The Square, Cedar Mountain Winery, and Castlewood Country Club.  I  continue to perform at such venues, as well and weddings and private parties. 

 

In 2009 I joined the legendary Tri-Valley band "Tommy and the 4 Speeds",  and have performed  with them at many summer concerts at Pleasanton's Wayside Park.  You can learn more about the 4 Speeds by clicking THIS LINK to the band website. 

Daisy the Wonder Dog is my faithful sidekick, and is featured prominently on our YouTube concerts recordings.

In recent years, I have been thankful to perform with my daughter Audrey, an extremely talented musician and accomplished vocalist, and 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 fiancé Claire Henderson provide, as well as their occasional cameo appearances as their graduate studies and wedding preparations allow.

In October 2021, I returned to the Music ministry at Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, and again serve as a guitarist at 7:30 am mass.
