HOMETOWN: Cincinnati, Ohio.
AGE: 53 going on 17.
HOBBIES: Hanging at the beach. Consuming adult beverages. Consuming adult beverages at the beach.
RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Making the move from Cincinnati to Fort Walton Beach. I came here for the opportunity to play for an ever-fluctuating crowd of tourists. Cincinnati has a great music scene that no one supports.
PROFILE: I’m a solo acoustic performer who has made my living playing music 300 dates a year since 1989. I’ve released six albums—five studio and one double live. I’m all about entertaining people, helping them forget their problems for a while, and showing them a good time.
