Musical Director

I am the musical director, principal arranger and manager of Down for the Count – a jazz, swing and soul band who have performed at thousands of events since I formed the band in 2005.

Our current focus is on our Concert Orchestra – a collaboration between the regular Down for the Count line-up and City String Ensemble. Together we make the Down for the Count Concert Orchestra, and we sound like this…
