I have been into music as far back as I can remember. Started singing at 3 and started playing musical instruments at 8. I played in school band, orchestra, stage band (sort of), PEP band, and Drum and Bugle Corps. I picked up a guitar at 18. My first band, Euphoria, was the favored band at Skyline High in Oakland CA. The year was 1975. A graduating senior from that class that would come to the gigs and later went onto fame as an acclaimed actor was Tom Hanks. Don't know why, but we never met. A band that nearly made it was called Stagecoach, which was an interesting name for a funk/rock band. Our leader, Jeremy Storch, played in a band called the Vagrants back in the 60's with that great guitarist, Leslie West (Mountain). Eddie Money was one of the people that used to attend our practices. What is a blessing for me was to find out that Jeremy has been Rabbi Jeremy, a psalmist, for some time. He is a rabbi that teaches JESUS as salvation... Praise GOD!!!! I went in and out of many other local bands and was in and out of my relationship with GOD, though His hand was always on me. He delivered me from drugs and alcohol in 1973 and in 1993 brought me into His camp. I have played in a couple of secular bands, but most of what I do and now all of what I do is for the Lord. On my tunes at myspace.com/mannawar, talenttrove.com/mannawar, and shoutlife.com/mannawar, I do all the vocals and instruments. With my wife's insistence and help, I played at the Cornerstone Festival in Silverado, CA, without a band. I had a CD which had my brother Dave on bass, my other brother Dave on drums, and my other brother Dave on rhythm guitar. The band, MannaWar that day was Mannalone. I asked GOD to let dance at the foot of His Throne so His anointing could fall and bless all of us. When the show was over (4 whole songs), the tent that started with 7 ended up filled with people stopping and listening outside. I could say it was me, but I asked for GOD's anointing and that was the real reason. He blessed me by the people's generous compliments.
I have played in a number of bands and worship teams.
