PROFESSION: Singer-keyboard player-entertainer…order to be determined.
AGE: Taught Methuselah in high school.
HOBBIES: Who needs a hobby when you play music for a living?
RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Managed finally to put pants on without falling over. Watched Fox News without hurting (did have the sound off, though). Made dinner without setting house on fire for once. Read Beachcomber from cover to cover—so many words!
PROFILE: Keyboardist (and prior trombonist), singer, session player, arranger and bon vivant. After a classical music education, decided rock was more fun and have been playing professionally for 50 years (time flies!). I’ve been in the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area since the early ‘80s and watched it grow, and grow, and grow, and… you’d think they’d build a few more roads!
After playing with bands through the 20th century, I’ve been concentrating on mostly solo work for the last 10 years or so.

FAVORITE FREE PUBLICATION: Beachcomber!
Diki Ross’ gig schedule appears in this issue’s Live Music section, and he sits in with numerous bands in the area, whether they want him to or not.
