This musician is known by many names in the midwest. "Keyboard", "Q-Jam", "Eighty8", ... but whatever you call him, it's obvious. He can JAM.

Playing songs like "Summer Madness", "Reach For It", and "P-Funk"... making them one of the hottest bands on Chicago's west side. He joined the Army in the 80's and traveled to Korea where he put a band together that was so profound, they were put on assigment to tour the country playing stages throughout Korea and Japan.

I love to open the stage to new upcoming artists and songwriters. I am inspired by different things that leads us to work seamlessly in a creative setting. We take turns writing music and lyrics so we are all invested in each song and its meaning. I love to perform music that spans through many cultures and genres. My songlist is very diverse and includes current hits and throwback classics.
