Welcome to 2021! It's been awhile since I've updated my site, so I'm glad to welcome you back. There's no denying that 2020 was a tough year for the entertainment industry being derailed by COVID-19. I know we all can't wait for the day when things return to normalcy and we can look forward to a busy and productive 2021. Smoking Gunz continues to bring the finest country music to Chicago and beyond for our 24th year! We're still going strong with no end in sight! China Grove - The Doobie Brothers Tribute, continues to build on the success of our 2017 debut with more shows in the Chicagoland area and beyond in 2021. 

I am pleased to announce that I am now an Endorsing Artist for The Kelly Shu Microphone Shock-Mount System. It's a great product, one I've been using for years and I'm proud to say I stand behind 100%!! Message me if you'd like to hear my experience with The Kelly Shu.

I've got several open dates, so if you're in need of a sub, or any short or long term project, including sessions, look me up. Doesn't have to be country. I also have openings for private lessons including virtual lessons as well. You can reach me through the Contact page if you're interested in lessons for either drums or piano. 

Lots of new shows booked so be sure to go to the Shows page and see what's been added! 

Thanks for checking out the site and like voting in Chicago, make sure you come back early and often!​​​​
