~ Bruce Music is acoustic jam rock with blues, jazz, funk, and reggae grooves. While performing I create live musical loops building captivating sonic layers to which I improvise with my guitars and vocals. Improvising and creating new music live is what music is all about to me! So I “go for it” performing, ensuring a new and magical musical experience every time!
