|I Started playing sax in 1958 (I was 13). I got together with a few friends, also just learning to play, and we started a rock and roll band. Soon we were getting 'gigs' around our hometown of Houston, Texas.
In 1962 I joined the U.S. Navy and spent the next 20 years as a sax player with various Navy Bands including 6 years (1970-1976) with the U.S. Naval Academy Band in Annapolis, Md. My Navy years also included 2 years of study at the U.S. Navy School of Music, where I studied such things as theory, harmony, arranging, conducting and composition. Somewhere along the way I started 'doubling' on keyboards.
In 1982 I retired from the Navy and spent the next 10 years as a keyboard/sax player with a road band.
In 1992 I returned to my hometown of Houston, Texas where I have since been performing locally and regionally.
