Background

Formerly played in The Spiders, Jamie Lee Thurston's Band, Marble City Swing Band, Enerjazz Big Band, Don Bletz and the Rhythm Rockers.

 

While I was in Massachusetts I played with the Chess Kings, a 4-piece rockabilly band. When I came home in 1993 I started with Satin & Steel.

 

Plus I also play with Blue Jay Way, Brad Morgan in a duo set-up. I've also played with some very big names in their horn sections: the Temptations, Gladys Morgan (of the Marvelettes), and the Supremes. I put together horn sections for Joan Rivers too!

 

Started playing saxophone in 4th grade and I have not stopped at all! Played with many different bands and many different styles of music. My first professional gig was at 15 with the Marble City Swing Band.

 

Right now I'm a Professional Engineer working at the Giancola Family of Companies. This is a great job for me. I have four kids, ages 22 to 15. They are the center of my life
