I am a 60yo Yankee ex pat now proud Aussie citizen who has been playing keys since I was 5. My first public performance was during middle school when the church organist was ill. I loved accompanying the swing choirs of my midwestern youth and actually have first hand stories of the real life inspirations for 'Glee'. In 2016 I dedicated myself to expanding my repertoire so I could play in dementia wards and have done that from 2016-2020 and just resumed here in Cairns.

Set list
I am hoping that singers or bands in need of a keyboardist will reach out to me as I am happy to learn new pieces and able to drop melody lines from sheet music in order to allow vocalists to perform rubato. I do not memorise songs but play from sheet music and can play hundreds of songs.
I am crazy for the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Stephen Sondheim, Hart & Rogers, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington. Basically the music my mother knew and played when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s.
Gig Highlights
I did accompany the singers at my church in the USA in the 2000s, but basically my gigs have been at the dementia wards and in my loungeroom.
