Live work

You can catch me...

Performing regularly with...

Presuming you're old enough to remember the popular music of the late '60s and early '70s, our shows will have you singing along to songs you forgot you knew.

Su Teears replicates Amy's powerful contralto vocals while also capturing elements of Amy's style, attitude and quirky look. We play select occasions throughout the year.

One of the most popular live bands of the Philadelphia region for 35+ years, we bring dance music to weddings, casinos, beaches, parks and clubs.

Whenever Paul Hammond plays at his neighborhood bar, I am usually on keys. He used to have a standing gig on the first Sunday of every month that wound up with a set of Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith covers sung by his Get the Led Out bandmate Paul Sinclair. They invited me to their monthly jam session in 2010 and kept me in the lineup for as long as they were still regularly playing that gig. In 2018, the First Sunday Band shifted toward gigs on the last Tuesday of every month.


Substituting for...

This national touring act based out of Philadelphia is known for on-point live renditions of Led Zeppelin's revered studio output. I was a regular understudy for their keyboardist from 2011 to 2014, playing on several tours and individual shows.

This hugely popular ten-piece dance band was the WMGK House Band 2012-2013. They weave horn-based classic rock and retro soul with modern pop hits. As a regular understudy keyboardist over a five-year period, I kept pace with their incorporation of many musical genres.


Performing by myself...

I'm also available for my own solo appearances, where you could hear just about anything -- maybe even a little stuff I've written.

Making guest appearances with...

This tribute band's live appearances occasionally expand to all sorts of other groove-laden rock.

The virtuoso guitarist Chris Gordon put together a backing band for his "vanity project," which turned out to be the Philadelphia area's first and only tribute to Yngwie Malmsteen.

This rock/soul/dance band professes funk and rock for your soul. The group is made up of alumni and friends of Lancaster Catholic High School.

A jazz quartet of four musicians who aren't really jazz players at all but who played the Vince Guaraldi Trio's A Charlie Brown Christmas album in its entirety at the end of 2018 and are getting ready to do it again for Christmas 2019.

The Greasy Greens
This vaudevillian big band ensemble based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, accepted me into their fold in 2011 while I was rolling through their town. I played two shows with them, but they tell me that once you're a Greasy Green, you're always a Greasy Green. I found out later that the Arkansas Times ran a feature on them in 2007, proving everything they told me about themselves to be true.

When I was sent on business to report on a conference of the nation's top 300 professionals in the world of building science, this band spontaneously formed around me and luckily gets to reunite for performances at least once every year.

Alicia Maxwell
She is a recipient of the Diamond State Blues Society's Budding Artist award, whom I met in Mississippi. Her 2012 CD Get Your Priorities Straight includes two of her soulful originals with my keyboard sounds on them and also on a spunky and funky cover of the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction."
