Sitting in with the Clams

Monday, February 9, 2009

I was just asked to sit in with The Clams. These guys are a righteous Surf Rock band from Connecticut. I'm stoked cause I'm a huge surf music fan. In fact, I'm currently writing surf intsro's and have been trying to get a surf band together featuring banjo for some time. This is gonna be rad. Add Comment

Grew up in central CT. I got started with my first band when I was 16 years old. They were a group of guys called the Flatlanders, and I learned allot from them. I spent my early 20's playing at different theme parks around the country, and spent time traveling and living in places from Orlando to Las Vegas. I spent allot of time jamming with a Boston/New England area band, The Swaggerin' Growlers. A raucous bunch of Irish folk punk stylists. We had great times. I lived in Nashville for a while were I was fortunate enough to jam, gig, and record with some great musicians. Now I find myself back in CT were I am quickly becoming active in the music scene again. If anyone needs a banjo player, wants to jam, or in need of lessons, feel free to let me know. I am actively playing and teaching in the Greater Hartford area.
