Having played the local pubs for some time I found myself doing solo,work and possessing a genuine desire to play as often as possible. I had been playing with a talented bass player vocalist who had decided to reduce his playing time while I was feeling the need to perform more often. As luck would have it Frank was looking for a partner. We had met and talked before when we had crossed paths at gigs, and later by phone.
It was June of 2013. I had booked myself a gig at "Mystic Village" . It was a side venue run in conjunction with "The Mystic Blues Festival". Frank had a series of jobs booked in fact one that very evening. We agreed to use the morning show as a "warm up/ learning session" doing my set list. Being experienced musicians, we read each other well and the show went off without a hitch. A few hours later we met for gig number two which also,came off smoothly.
As we progressed we became more comfortable with each other's playing and one day Frank started dropping harmonies on top of my vocals. What a treat !!! I must say Marc Cohn's " Walking in Memphis" in two part harmony is cool !! We have expanded the songs to include soloing and we have allowed things to grow in a natural way. We have also forged a true friendship and,the best part, we are meeting wonderful people along the way.
Our corridor extends from Newport R.I. to Old Saybrook Ct. and as for north as Middletown Ct. We have traveled into western Ma. as well. Our goal is to enjoy our lives playing the music we love.We are going to use this web site to keep you informed. If we haven't met you yet hopefully we will soon add you to our always growing circle
