Before 1970 — Indiana

I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. That's where I learned to play, and where I first got paid to play. It was a jazz town, and I figured that everyplace was like that. When I first put together a band and we started to play for dances, we played jazz, and people seemed to be happy with that. I found places to play in Indianapolis, Louisville, and countless small towns in between.

I became busier when I moved to LA, but this page will deal the stuff that came before that. But wait—there's more (soon).
