PERSONAL MUSIC HISTORY

• Began playing professionally in 1964 at a wedding where I grew up in Mineral Wells, TX.
• Was an organ major at Hardin-Simmons University (class of ’73).
• Have played organ/piano in one church or another almost every Sunday since then.
• Have played over 2500 weddings and an appropriate number of funerals, etc.
• Currently Music Associate at Unity Church of Dallas on Forest Lane.

BANDS/GROUPS I HAVE PLAYED OR AM PLAYING IN

• Became associated with Incredible Productions Dallas (a theatrical and convention planning company) in 1972 playing a wide variety of musicals, industrial shows (think Dr. Pepper, Mary Kay, Southwest Airlines, etc.) and private events across the US. Still occasionally involved with them today.
• Most memorable gig: Playing keyboards in backup orchestra for Three Dog Night. “Jeremiah was a bullfrog. Boom, Boom, Boom”!!!
• *UpSwing Jazz Orchestra
• *DixieSwing Dixieland Band

CAREER/RETIREMENT HIGHLIGHTS

• Retirement, huh? That’s when you stop working, right?
• In my next life I WILL have a real job with retirement benefits, company car, paid vacations, etc.!!
• Or, if still a musician, will play the piccolo which can be carried in one’s shirt pocket.

FAMILY

• Have had a string of Shelties for nearly 50 years. Current reps: Austin and Cookie.
• Enjoy time spent with my sister and her brood along with their myriad animals out in the country in East Texas. (Who knew there were sooo many stars up there?)

INTERESTS/HOBBIES

• Railroads. On Fridays, before UpSwing rehearsals, I usually sit in the park next door which is adjacent to BNSF RR main line hoping for a train to pass just for the pleasure of watching the action. Still play with model trains.
