I took piano lessons for many years as a youngster and, later, majored in Music Education
and Performance at Western Michigan University. I pursued a career in business but always maintained music as an avocation.
In my sophomore year of high school, I played with "The Ramrods", a regionally popular
Rock band from the 50's and 60's. In 1965 I founded "The Epsilons", a 4-peice pop group and early
in 1966 I formed "The Magic Toy Shop", a 5-peice rock group that performed almost exclusively for local college fraternity
In November of 1967, while pursuing a college education, I disbanded "The Magic
Toy Shop" and retired from the "Ramrods" to play five nights each week for the Village Inn Pizza Parlor of
This position endured for almost twenty five years while I settled into sales/management
as a career. In the spring of 1998 I co-founded the popular "River Rogues
Jazz Band" and created "A Sentimental Journey" in 2005. I am currently the business manager and performing piano
player in both groups. I am also the General Manager of Molesta Floral Co.
I have performed for many venues over the years:
* Country Clubs
* Corporate Events
* Etc., Etc.
I am very proud of "A Sentimental Journey"!!!!
