I am a Singer, Songwriter, Musician, (part time comedian)I play a personally invented instrument called a M.E.R.C.I.-5 (pronounced MERCY-5):said acronym stands for : Musical, Electronic, Rhythm, Combination Instrument. i.e.: Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards and Vocals(both Lead and Background vocals) They are : Five(5) Players, ONE(1)Person. I sing and play "Old Fashion Gospel, Quartet Gospel, and Original Gospel songs and music. I play a style of music I call "Country Blues Gospel", and can play for two(2) hours straight and never sing the same song twice ! The biggest impact on both me and my music has been my own testimonies and life experiences. But I love Brother Ray Charles, Mother Mahailya Jackson, The Staple Singers, The William Brothers and "Lil Stevie Wonder" just to name a few. Aside from my instrument (MERCI-5) I have been blessed at age 64 yrs. to still play a Eight(8) piece drum set, guitar, a "little keyboard" and sing. During my performances I tend to add comedy in with the songs(like I said, "life experiences")I am sometimes accompanied by my "Life Partner"(AKA my lovely Wife)and a few (of her friends whom I refer to as : The HOLY GHOST STEPSAVERS(When THEY feel like singing / I call em the "halfsteppers" when they don't) In addition, I also incorporate a "Gospel D.J."program along with a "karaoke" type activity"WE are on a Mission from God, so "when praises go up, blessings come down. (I'M A BAD MAN !) so... "YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THIS TO BELIEVE YOUR EARS" !! :-) Comeon let's have some FUN and Praise The Lord !
