Music, music, music! . Old movies, largely from the 40's to the early 60's:Flim Noir (an obsession), crime, sci-fi, & spy/intrigue are the main categories. Books: Sci-Fi from the 40's to the 60's (hmm, there seems to be a pattern emerging here), Hard-Boiled Detective novels and Hard-Boiled fiction in general. Antiques, antiquing and vintage design styles: Art Deco (love it!) & 50's/60's Streamline/"Populuxe"/Space Age top the list.

I'm a musician, avid record and music collector, and a dealer of rare records and CD's by profession. I led bands in the Boston area for 25 years prior to moving to the DC area in 2006. I sing, play guitar and harmonica. The styles of music I like to play are raw and stripped down-from the 1940's to 1960's (but especially the 1950's!)-including Blues, Jump Blues, early Black Rock 'N Roll & Doo Wop, '50's Rock 'N Roll in general, Country, Surf and Instro, and most often over the years: Rockabilly. Currently I'm working with a fine group of musicians and we are playing out under the moniker, The Four Star Combo. We're offering an eclectic and primal mix of Rockabilly and Country. Coming soon to a theater near you!
