 I play saxophone, wind synthesizer, blues harp, guitar, and banjo and attended Berklee College of Music.

 I play tenor sax with Hot Biscuits, a great blues/soul/R&B band that plays clubs in the greater Boston area (Some places we’ve played are Acton Jazz Café, The Blue Plate Lounge, The Cantab Lounge, Church,  Fat Boys, The (late, great) Kirkland, Jakes BBQ, Johnny D’s, Mal’s Lounge, O’Brien’s Pub, and Sally O’Brien’s)

Here are some live samples recorded at local clubs around Greater Boston;

Ain't Superstitious (old Willie Dixon blues, most famously covered by Jeff Beck)

Knock on Wood (R&B tune written and performed by Eddie Floyd and covered by many)

Caldonia (Great swing blues featuring a sax solo by yours truly)

Ain't No Fat Man on the Roof (a Geezer original – funky soul)

Get In Here and Eat (another Geezer original – swing blues and barbeque, a great combination)


Here are a couple of videos of us playing at Johnny D’s in Somerville, MA.

I am also playing with a jazz group out of Morningside Studios.  Here is a video of us performing at Ryle Jazz Club in Cambridge

I have been climbing Katahdin at Baxter Park in Maine every summer for a long time, and especially enjoy the Knife Edge trail that runs along the ridge pictured here.
