I really started singing first.I sang to my brother as a way to communicate,since all he could do was hear. Then the radio became a big part of my life when I was 8 or 9 and I started singing with all of my favorite songs.At 15 I started to play guitar and drums and haven't been able to stop since.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
I really can't remember. Maybe it was a Beach Boys concert,but I used to go and hear Sam and Dave play when they would come to Miami Beach.
What gear do you use?
I have a Premier drum set and a Martin D-35,a Silvertone Hollow body electric from the 60s ,a Fender Strat, 3 Moeck recorders and various wooden flutes. No favorites,really
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Frederic Chopin was my favorite. That's who first caught my attention.The melodies and rhythms got a hold of me.One of my father's friends,Casimer Krance, was a concert Pianist from Poland and he used to play for us after fantastic dinners that he would cook for us. He was one of my heroes.That was at the Krance's house in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I'm in a band called The Harvest Gypsies and One called Wida in Tallahassee, Fl.We play often. The styles are from pop to rock,jazzy blues and alternative.The Gypsies have played together for many years. Wida is with Brett Richter and my nephew Dillon. We've been playing ,off and on, since 97.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
That's a tough one . Mozart,Bela Fleck,Neil Finn,Brian Wilson,The Beatles,The Kinks,Cat Stevens, Gram Parsons, Neil Young...Should I stop?
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
17,000 in Detroit with Gerard McHugh on an Indigo Girls tour was the largest. The smallest was probably in some bar with nobody there but the bartender and a few waitresses.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
A Chopin CD or Tea For The Tillerman(Cat Stevens). Chopin, because that's my favorite music.His music was always in my life.
