George has been playing keyboards in bands since his high school days on the south side of Chicago. In his first band, ‘The Renegades’, he played all the ‘English Invasion’ music of the 60’s on a Wurlitzer electronic piano. Through the years, George has played everything from Classic Rock to disco and jazz fusion. His main keyboard influences are Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Greg Allman, Lonnie Liston Smith, Ramsey Lewis, and Jimmy Smith. His style mixes rock and roll licks with jazz riffs and the occasional classical phrase. George’s Illinois bands included Islands and Common Ground among others. Since moving to Houston in 1996, George has played with Lost in Tyme, Nite Owl, Fuzzylicious, 1000 Stories, and The Scratch Band, to name a few.
