My influences were my dad, he was a steel, guitar, mandolin, harp player, if it had strings he was all over it! My brother was the lead guitar player in our town's rock band, there was always music in our house. I play my original & many cover songs.
I have lived and played in different towns on the Canadian and US side of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, done a few paying gigs, lots of open mic's, but my favourite gigs to play are Benefits.
Thank you for reading and hope you will come back to listen when I do a StreetJelly Concert from a kitchen near you.

I want to Thank Classy_Croc for your kindness.
In 2009, I was playing a gig on the street in Westfield NY, for their '1st Friday Summer series', They had a 4 or 5 musicians spread out over the main street of town . I got myself setup in front of a store with 'Baby', a mic/stand & a small jazz amp, thought I had it all set up properly, started playing when a passerby stopped, adjusted my amp told me I sounded good but my guitar needed tweaking, said he did sound for a company out of Erie PA, I thanked him & he moved on! That was pretty darn cool, I just wish I had got his name.
Way too many to list here lol
I play my 36 yr old Yamaha FG375SII, I call her 'Baby',
& 'Woody', my Washburn Woodline WLD10SCE,
I have a cordless acoustic guitar/mic amp
and Neewer NW7000 USB mic for online
