I play bongo and congas and ukulele and guitar, but mostly I'm a singer. I'm currently with two bands. One is a surf/rock band and the other is jazz band. We perform at park concerts, jazz clubs, corporate events and home parties.

As a hobby, you can't beat performing. I find it totally satisfying. I love being on stage and I love the constant discovery as I work to improve my skills.

I dabble in Congas. Actually numerous percussion instruments, djembe, ashiko,
timbales, surdo, you know, stuff that can be banged on. I play regularly in a
churchy rock band, sit-in with a fairly well known blues band in the area, and
have recorded a bunch of stuff with a couple of friends. We are strictly
percussion along the lines of Mickey Hart's Planet Drum. Some of the TC Ohana
might know us as "The Mensters."

Nice kit!

I started out on Violin when I was 6, played in several youth orchestras. I also started playing Piano just before, but never had a single lesson. Then I switched to Electric and upright bass in Jr. High. I also started playing drums, guitar and mandolin around the same time. In High school I stuck with Bass, playing jazz bass in the stage band, but added marimba and french horn (so I could be even more of a dork and be in the marching band all 4 years). Around this time Rockabilly was really hip, so I did that with some friends. Also played with a surf/mod/punk band for a while. In college I played vibes in the stage band. In the military over in the Islands I jammed with a lot of guys that were into fusion at the time (weather report, spyro gyra, Crusaders, etc..)got into traditional Hawaiian music (I had already been into Exotica since early childhood-via my mom's Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman records) and re-dedicated myself to bass. After getting back home I joined mostly rock bands playing in a RUSH tribute band, and ELP/YES/KING CRIMSON tribute band, several new wave bands in the vein of Berlin and Missing persons, ect, and then top forty bands, funk bands, and one particularly vicious Huntington Beach band that wanted to be the next Dramarama or Sublime. Then I whored myself out to everything from Bluegrass to polka, and finally found my boys in the Smoking Menehunes about 5 years ago. I also was a member of a straight ahead bop group just prior to joining the menehunes. Because I am bald, and like to go to bed early, I totally wrote off being a rock star. Just did not have the desire or the image, though others tried to steer me in that direction. If I had a dime for every time some guy said, "Just wear a hat"........
