Brad can play just about any instrument that is handed to him, and is best known for his magical work on the guitar. He surprises audiences when he picks up the banjo and plays as though he was born on the Mississippi Delta.
Over the years Brad has recorded, produced and engineered six albums, toured with his own show throughout the nation focusing on Nevada (Reno/Tahoe, Vegas), as an Impressionist/Comedian in the Comedy Circuit opening for the likes of Jay Leno, George Carlin and Jeff Foxworthy…, in the medias of radio and television doing voice-overs, commercials, host and MC work… and television theme songs including the NBC television series "Walking Tall". Then add to all of this his involvement with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the American Heart Association charity events… and you realize Brad’s experience takes him to many different levels of professionalism.
