I have over five hours of background tracks over which I play solo tenor pan melodies and improvisation. I recorded most of my background tracks bossa nova style on a nylon string guitar, I also perform reggae, and swing style on pan. I also spontaneously compose, and can perform medlies for hours if needed to without background tracks.
Sunny side of the street, Puttin on the ritz, impossible dream, mean to me, I've got you under my skin, I've got the world on a string, all of me, satin doll, sweet Georgia Brown, Let’s fall in Love, crazy, it don’t mean a thing, all through the day, blue skies, polkadots and moonbeams, stairway to the stars, what a wonderful world, Out of nowhere,

I grew up in a musical family and listened to a variety of world music, I studied upright bass privately in high school and attended music camps for double bass, and then I studied double bass performance in college, and performed for six years with the Asheville symphony orchestra, and as principal to multiple other orchestras in the area from 2006-2011 before I returned to Florida and learned Samba guitar and decided to record it in order to play steel pan solo over automated guitar accompaniment in order to facilitate fun solo gigs!
After extensive orchestral training and decades of experience performing professional upright bass, I have decided to gear my show towards solo steel pan act. For the last six years since returning to Florida i have been performing primarily in the convention scene on multi instruments depending upon the demand, I range from fun steel pan, to rhythm guitar, to expert trained bass, to island djembe and percussion, but would prefer to play over my tracks and an acoustic pan is usually loud enough!
