As time went on, he started a local band in his hometown, Virginia Beach, Virginia named “The Virginia Fire Band”. A local group with a tremendous following playing country music, country rock and southern rock. He became to be considered one of the best lead guitar players in the area and his band played on some of the biggest stages in the area along with big named bands at the time.
During that period, he wrote a song called “Six Strings and my Hands”. This song was featured on a local bands album, produced by radio station (K94 – ZAM11) in Virginia Beach in 1980. The album was called “Homebrew” and some copies are still available today. Playing live radio shows and television broadcast, the band was considered one of the best in the area.
