I organized the MJS Electric Band in order to perform a specific repertoire of music that I ahve composed over the past 40 years related exclusively to electronic instruments. I have been playing electric keyboards since the age of 13 when I purchased my first Farfisa organ. From Farfisa to Fender Rhodes piano to Yamaha DX7 to KORG M1 to Hammond XB3 organ and finally to my Nord Electro IV. The influence of electric rock, funk, soul, latin and other hybrid musics are a huge part of my musical life. The current lineup features the amazing Christian Howes on electric violin, Zack Page on electric bass, Justin Watt on drums and myself on keyboards. We play music that has its roots in Weather Report, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Frank Zappa, Return to Forever, George Duke and the like.
