I played lead guitar and keys in local bands like Hot Ice, Starrider, Alibi,
and 3 Dicks & A Jane at South Bay clubs like Mountain Charley’s, Britannia

every morning, the staff and listeners love to rock, and we all still love
livin’ in the South Bay for the sun, fun, short ride to the beach, and late
night runs to Taco Bravo on Bascom :)
