Details:

I am a long time lead vocalist who now plays guitar and sings. I DO NIEL YOUNG THE BEATLES , GERRY AND THE PACEMAKERS . I AM basically a classic rocker. In the 60'S I WAS LEAD SINGER FOR A BAND IN THE OXON HILL D.C AREA CALLED THE DAGENITES. YOU CAN SEE US AT GARAGEHANGOVER.COM.

IHAVE SANG FOR MANY BANDS AND I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS WITH SOME OF THE OLD TIMERS , SOME LIVING SOME DEAD.

I JAMMED MANY TIMES AND PARTIED WITH MY GOOD FRIEND DANNY GATTON WHO I KNEW FOREVER . HE ATTENDED OXON HILL SR HIGH AS DID I AND LIVED NEAR ME IN ACCOKEEK MD.I KNEW DANNY FROM HIS ELMIRA STREET DAYS!

SOME GREAT PLAYERS LIVED AND WENT TO OXON HILL AND I KNOW THEM ALL. STEVE WOLF (GREAT BASSIST) BARRY HART (DRUMS) RICKY BENNICK(LEAD GUITAR FOR THE CHERRY PEOPLE) ETC,. ALL OXON HILL BOYS!!!!. THE DAGENITES WERE BRIEFLY MANAGED BY LINK WRAY'S MANAGEMENT AND I SAW AND KNEW LINK PRETTY WELL. HE WAS MUCH OLDER THAN ME.

ANYWAY I HAVE BEEN AROUND ALONG TIME, AND I ENJOY SINGING AND PLAYING MORE THAN ANYTHING.

IN LATE YEARS I HAVE BEEN BATTLING SOME MEDICAL ISSUES(CANCER)

BUT I WONT LET IT STOP ME. I ALSO HAVE A KARAOKE BUSINESS THAT I RUN FROM MY COMPUTER WITH 65,000 SONGS, BUT SINCE MY ILLNESS I HAVENT DONE MUCH WITH THAT.

BUT PLAYING CHORDS AND CROONING IS MY THING AT 61 YEARS OLD AND I HOPE I NEVER QUIT.

THANKS
