A so-so player, co-founder of the BBA (Bayside Banjo Aggregation in Baltimore, MD), co-chairman of the 1986 FIGA convention, past president of the BBA and host of the annual BBA event known as the St. Valentine's Day Masacre & Banjofest held each year in Boiling Springs, PA. Developed the Greg Allen Chordmaster and produced Riley's Routines For Better Banjo authored by Jim Riley. Currently publisher of new banjo ezine, Fretz Yankee Informer (FYI). Am personally acquainted with many of the top pros and have been fortunate enough to have had some instructiion from many fine pros, among them Epp Roller, Jim Riley, Al Smith and Buddy Wachter. Although of limited ability as a player, I could help tenor beginners get started on the right track. With my experience setting up banjo get togethers, I might also be helpful in guiding others interested in producing local banjo events.
