Welcome to 2024! It's been awhile since I've updated my site, so I'm glad to welcome you back. There's no denying that 2020 - 2022 were tough years for the entertainment industry being derailed by COVID-19. I know we're all glad that things are returning to “normalcy” and we can look forward to a busy and productive 2024. Smoking Gunz continues to bring the finest country music to Chicago and beyond for our 27th year! We're still going strong with no end in sight! I've also recently been sitting in with Chicago country music legends Diamondback, as well as The Kurtis James Band, so please check out the Shows page to see a list of all my upcoming performances. 

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 still  got some 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!​​​​
