I’m a guitarist, bassist, songwriter, and guitar teacher, recently relocated to the Palm Beach County, Florida area. I’ve been performing throughout New York, Colorado, and Arizona for over 15 years in styles ranging rock, country, bluegrass, folk, funk, reggae and blues.
2011’s “Uncle Frish’s Whiskey” EP was my first solo record. This album marks a shift in songwriting and playing, drawing heavily on the simple melodies and compelling stories of outlaw country and American roots music for inspiration.
My last band, Them Raggedy Bones played shows for three years throughout Colorado. This band continued the trend of roots inspired country/folk/rock started with “Unlce Frish’s Whiskey”, but with a beefed up, more powerful sound featuring two guitars, lap steel/dobro, bass guitar, and drums. Them Raggedy Bones recorded one album of original music in 2015 called “Redheads and Indians”.
My new project Dobro Mike and The Frish is an acoustic duo featuring myself on guitar and mandolin, and Mike Mehlenbacher on dobro and flattop guitar. We play original music as well as covers, running the gamut of country, blues, rock, and folk, all with a down-home, rootsy sensibility. Dobro Mike and The Frish is currently playing shows throughout South Florida.
I’m happy to announce that I’m now the rhythm guitar player for Girl Jerry Band, playing Grateful Dead covers throughout South Florida. We’ll be playing a monthly show at The Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca through at least April, so check your local listings and come on down!
I have been teaching guitar lessons for over 10 years to students of all ages and skill levels. I also teach beginner bass guitar and mandolin. I’m excited to continue turning people on to playing music, or helping them improve their playing, in my new home of South Florida. Check back for info on upcoming shows
