10 things you need to know about me:

  • 1) I’m heart –centered
  • 2) I sing, play the sax (Tenor, Alto, and Soprano), guitar, and conga/djembe percussion
  • 3) I love performing and entertaining
  • 4) I have grown to love recording and the record-making process
  • 5) I write music and have released 7 CD’s to date
  • 6) Honesty and Integrity are very important to me
  • 7) I love all kinds of music and do anything from Rock to Reggae and Funk to Jazz. (It all swings to some degree.)
  • 8) If I had to pick one artist that influenced my drive to entertain it would be Michael Jackson. As a young black kid, he was everything. His legacy is forever but I miss him.
  • 9) I love hockey and the Montreal Canadiens are my team. (I’m Toronto born and raised but I got off the Leaf bandwagon in 1982. Still a good call!)
  • 10) I mainly perform with The Lester McLean Band, Grooveyard, and Elton Rohn but I am currently freelancing a little more. Bring on the music!
  • 11) Bonus thing – My favourite artists include: MJ, Living Colour, Van Halen, Phil Collins, Sammy Hagar, Bob Marley, The Police/Sting, Marvin Gaye, Chick Corea Elektric Band, Brantford Marsalis, Dave Mathews Band, Anita Baker, Hall and Oates, INXS, and many more! Read More
