Gentleman extraordinaire deep in the groove of society and the doldrums of the daily grind.
After hearing " She Loves You " I decided to switch career goals from center field for the Yankees to playing in a rock and roll band. By the time of punk movement, I had the startling realization that one coulMmmmmd really play your own music. So I packed up my gear and moved to Boston and eventually wound up in " The Neighborhoods" during that heyday. When that band broke up , I joined "Primary Colors" which lead to owning and operating Syntex Recording Studios. Leaving that all behind for quite a while, a chance meeting with Luke developed in to this band, where I feel lucky to have found 3 other mates I completely enjoy playing with.
The first music that grabbed me was the Beatles “When I’m Sixty Four”.
After that I was hooked on not just rock and roll but pretty much all music. After a brief
stint on the viola I settled on the guitar in my teens and have been at it ever since. I’ve
played classic rock covers in rural Vermont, hardcore punk in New York’s East Village
and more recently original music in The Berkshires with Kelly Hagan and Bell Engine.
In April of 2014 I connected with Luke, John and Dana and Hack Monet was born.
Original music is what we’re all about.
