1985-87: Heaven's Flame: This was the band that Kenn [Nardi, Anacrusis bandleader] and I were involved with in high school. The majority of our material ended up on the first two Anacrusis releases.

1987: Mary Burns, an MCA artist , a real seasoned pro who did Vegas. She really taught me what would be expected from a pro drummer.

1987-1989: Tropix, a circuit band.
