Our History

Growing up in the 60s with a father who was a renowned ballroom dance instructor and performer, I was fortunate to be surrounded by the music of the "Big Band" era. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, and the Harry James Orchestra were all iconic figures during that time.

I have vivid memories of attending my father's dance functions as a child. When I grew tired, I would seek refuge under my mother's table and become mesmerized by the musicians on the bandstand. Despite learning the ballroom dances, my true passion lies in the music itself.

As time went on, my love for live music persisted. I am grateful to have the ability to play and sing the songs I cherish. Surrounding myself with like-minded individuals who share the same passion is a constant source of joy for me.

From my early years as a sax player, I was exposed to both the classics of the "Big Band" era and the rock and roll of the 60s. This influenced my musical preferences, leading me to appreciate groups like Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, Average White Band, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Steely Dan, Michael Buble, and Dave Mathews, all of whom incorporate horns into their sound.

When asked about my musical journey, I often respond, "not long enough." After years of being a musician in the USAF Band and playing as a side player, I have taken on the role of a band leader. It is now my responsibility to develop my God-given talent and represent myself and those I work with in a professional and respectful manner.

My love for playing music still thrives, and I consider myself blessed to have been given unique gifts. I believe it is my purpose to showcase these talents to the best of my abilities.

As a band leader and advocate for musicians, I strive to create an environment that is respectful and fair. I have encountered leadership styles that have been disrespectful to the hard work and dedication I put into my craft, and it is my mission to provide a different approach.

With my experience as a musician and an understanding of what captivates audiences and makes them dance, I am well-equipped to coordinate a wide range of events. My role as a band leader allows me to keep talented musicians employed and pursue my passion for horn-based music. My focus is on progress, selecting material that deserves respectful representation, and prioritizing the enjoyment of the music and its audience over personal accolades.

"The Brass Evolution" represents the exciting journey that lies ahead for us, embracing growth and the appreciation of great music.
