Swng Time

Originally from Baltimore, MD. While in Baltimore I played in the Bing Miller Big Band which did a tour to Frankfurt, West Germany in 1985. I also played musical shows for local theaters and played in backup bands for Carmella Quinn and Al Martino. In addition I taught saxophone and clarinet privately.

In 1988 I rejoined the military band program. This time I joined the Navy Band Program. In 1978 - 1981 I was in the Army Band Program.The Navy's Atlantic Fleet Band brought me to this area. While in the Navy Band in Norfolk and Orlando I played in various ensembles which included Jazz Ensemble, US Navy Show Band, Concert Band/Wind Ensemble, TGIF and Full Speed Ahead Variety Bands, Four Star Edition Rock Band, Navy Band Orlando Show Band, Reception Combo. I was the leader of the Saxophone Quartet, Dixieland Band and the Fleet Jazz Combo at the Atlantic Fleet Band.
