Addicted Humor Writer, Product Namer, "Master of Terse Verse":
1988-present
I continue to write left-wing political humor on a daily basis. Please go to SeriousKidding.com to catch my drift. I also encourage you to witness my total obsessive devotion for writing bumper sticker lines. Most are non-political. You'll see that terse-verse writing is my specialty, and why product-naming, advertising, marketing and productive brainstorming are right up my creative alley. Many thanks.
Singer ~ Songwriter ~ Guitarist ~ Harmonica Player
The Buzzard Brothers: Flagstaff, Arizona
1994 - Present
I perform with The Buzzard Brothers blues band at numerous concert halls, fairs, school and charity functions, and other venues for and in The City of Flagstaff.  The Buzzard Brothers released a CD entitled "Nest Egg" in 1997 produced by Blue Condor Records.  We have recorded a demo as well, but it just doesn't do the Band justice. Thus, we have plans to get very serious about recording because we have such a wealth of music to share. I have also been an Artist in Residence for elementary school students, teaching blues and folk music as well as instructing in the art of songwriting. Forgive the horn-blowing, but I was also featured in a 3-year national ad campaign for Taylor Guitars with the testimonial, "My fingers Were Stunned," used when innocently requesting a Taylor Guitar Catalog. By the way, 2008 has been thee year for The Buzzard Brothers. We're not only a 4-piece group of raw blues energy now, but we've never been more busy. On the weekend of July 3-5, 2008 alone, we played 6 gigs. That's something we're very proud of, and grateful for, as we continue to become more and more popular on the local music scene. All the while, I continue to write more songs for the band (well over 200, though not all are officially registered with BMI: Blue Condor Music/BMI).
