  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
I was first involved in producing and promoting musical performances and booking bands during high school, and I owned and operated a teen dance club featuring live bands while studying design at the University of Alabama. I operated an art gallery/picture frame shop/art publishing business for 20 years, during which time I also dabbled in song writing, occasionally working with members of The Swampers at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios, where I also assisted with the promotion of a rock band signed to their Capitol/Muscle Shoals Sound record label, and designed and hand-crafted limited-production runs of logo-based precious metal jewelry promoting the studio and several of their clients, including Bob Dylan, Bob Seeger and the Amazing Rhythm Aces. I spent two-years as a keyboard player for a regional blues band, for whom I handled most of the promotion. I have attended concerts and performances by well over 300 regional, national and international touring and recording acts.
Since 2006, I have contracted my services to the City of Fort Payne, Alabama as the coordinator of the Boom Days Heritage Celebration, a multi-event arts and heritage festival which annually features dozens of the South's finest visual artists, and an impressive assortment of musical entertainers on 4 outdoor stages. Past performers at our intimate nighttime indoor shows have included Leon Russell, Cyril Neville and Percy Sledge. In 2013, Boom Days was chosen by the Southeastern Tourism Society as a Top 20 Event for September, and by the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association as the North Alabama Event of the Year.
I am interested in entering into consulting agreements with city governments and other entities in Alabama, Mississippi or Louisiana who are establishing or revitalizing arts festivals or series. My extensive network of contacts, acquired over the 50 years of my personal experience, have proven to be key to the success of my creative and promotional endeavors.
