Professional musician with nearly 40 years of experience.
Performed with the following recording artists:
- The Box Tops, 1987-1992 (Tour musician: guitar, backing vocals, and lighting manager).
The Box Tops had 10 songs that made the Bill Board Top-100 between 1967 and 1970. These songs included The Letter, #1 song of the year in 1967, and Cry Like A Baby that reached #2 on the charts in 1968.
My roll as a full-time tour musician with The Box Tops also provided me with the opportunity to perform with these other internationally renown performers:
- Billy J, Kramer, 1988 (Guitar)
- Bobby Lewis, 1989 (Guitar and backing vocals)
- The Diamonds, 1989 (Guitar)

- Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere and the Raiders, 1990 (Guitar)
Some of the other bands The Box Tops toured with included The Animals, Herman's Hermits, The Association, John Denver, Del Shannon, and The Four Tops. It was a tremendous honor and a great learning experience to be part of this world; but most important, it was a blast!
