I’ve been playing guitar in Sponge for near 10 years. But have been involved with the band since the inception (engineering and producing). Also played and recorded with Brownsville Station (of Smokin In the Boys Room fame) and The Bob Guiney Band (from ABC’s the Bachelor). I have been the lead singer and guitarist for (Throttlebody, Solid Frog and Slam Circus) since I can remember.

My all time favorite amp is my Naylor SuperDrive Sixty. Joe Naylor made… I’ve had it since the mid 90’s and have been a fan of everything Joe touches.
