GACabaret is an old-style Cabaret act with two musicians and a pair of very odd senses of humor.

Three guys playing a quartet (since I cover keys AND bass). Lots of jazz, several originals.

The original praise band at Vineville Baptist. Founded in 1994.  Recorded 2 albums of music that is bodacious for your brain…..NOT your ordinary praise band!

The primary site for info about me. Is in bad need of a redesign, but I have too much music to get written.

Blog I’m using for career & latest project  announcements.

Many of my tracks are posted here.


….also have several tracks over at and at WAP Publishing.

MaconMacGuy.comWeb design and Tech support, focused on small business in the area.

The blog for the computer class I taught at Mercer for several years. On hiatus at the moment [budget cuts]

Original designs by myself or my 17 year old son put on Shirts & Mugs & phone cases, etc. Some are music related, some true, some just silly.

Practice tracks produced for the Macon State Chamber Singers, which I accompany. I have also engineered the performance recordings on occasion, which are posted to the site as well.
