Don’t wanna bore you too much, but, just a little info to share. I have been playing Guitar since I was 17, (34 + yrs), wheeew, and have been playing in and out of Rock Bands in the Houston area since the early 80’s (Damn, seems like yesterday and forever all in one), and took a break from the band thing in the 90’s to pursue some Business ventures, but, I never stopped loving and playing the Guitar.
During that time I also started playing more than just Rock Guitar and fell in Love with Classical Guitar and also Bluegrass Banjo and the Mandolin. I also love building stringed instruments and have built several Guitars and more recently just finished (2 + yrs ago), my crowning Jewel and my most prized possession, my Bluegrass Banjo, her name is Jade.
After 2002, the hectic life of running my own Business slowed down and I really wanted to play Live music again. What I really did not want though (Nor miss), was having to deal with all the different diverse and often challenging "Personalities" and baggage we Musicians usually bring to the mix. I just wanted to play my Guitar, put on a good show and have FUN with it for everyone, pure and simple, no drama, so I found a way to do it.
At around the same time I was wanting to start playing out again, audio technology was making huge exponential leaps ahead in the forefront of Digital Music, both recording and playing. I am Technical by nature, as my PAYING Job requires and have stayed on top of the Digital music revolution in Technology and am happy to say I'm in the forefront of presenting this type of a new and unique Rock act. This technology has afforded me the ability to have Drum and Bass tracks (some keyboards also), recorded in the studio to all the songs I want to play and then I just play Lead & Rhythm Guitar and sing with the tracks I recorded in the studio, thus Rock U Solo. Most of the songs in my show are extended LIVE versions of the songs just as you would hear in any concert. All the songs in my show used to be primarily cover tunes but I am currently working in more and more of my originals. I am currently spending every waking spare moment I have in the "Man Cave Recording Studio" in Alvin, Texas working on my first CD Album project and plan on adding these originals to my "repertoire" and playing them LIVE as well. Since I love to play many styles of music, I am releasing singles right now until I have enough songs of similar style to put on one Album CD.
I hope we get the chance to meet or meet again (to all my old friends) in person and I really look forward to playing your private, public engagements and I hope you all enjoy my creations!

My Best Regards,
