Welcome to my humble page with (I hope)
useful and interesting
items for friends, music lovers,
and musicians--particularly fellow keyboardists.
Thanks for visiting!
Some samples of my music are
here in MP3
format for your listening enjoyment(!).
Most material was gleaned from my days with Area 51,
locally "known for their great music and big sound."
(Rivercity Times, Issue 2)
All tracks were
recorded at Digital Labs Studio
with guitar solos by one of Southeast Missouri's finest pickers, Steve Pirtle.
