Where Have I Been

Monday, January 24, 2011

Hello to all who read this.  Back a number of years ago when I first startesd playing banjo I joined Banjo Hang Out, and got to meet some real nice folks.  Well,  since then I have moved to Dundee, NY where I have opened a music store called Crocodile Music Store( www.crocodilemusicstore.com ).  Now I play all day with folks and sell them stuff they need like Deering and Gold Tone Banjos and Morgan Monroe Guitars, capos books and picks etc...    I still play a lot and have a few students.  I have just recorded a radio spot with my buddy Alan, which I have uploaded.  I am on banjo, guitar, and  bass.  Alan is singing.  We don't  make much any money at it, but we havn't lost to much either.

Guitar since 1962, banjo for 2 years. Working real hard on banjo, making good progress. I have also played in a local Oldies Band called Big Daddy'O and the Accelerators. I am not Big Daddy O. I am just an Accelerator! My wife and I have owned and run a Bed and Breakfast called the Brewster Inn here in Dexter, Maine until this past January. We have sold it to an English couple. We are preparing to move to The Finger Lake area of New York. Simultaneously with running the Inn I have been a Industrial Controls trainer and adjunct college instriuctor. I try to SCUBA Dive every day and I collect old plastic table top radios. My goal is to figure out how to play Banjo under water to be able to consolidate my hobbies into less time.
