Biography

Over the last few years JD has been blessed with the opportunity to perform at special events that are of personal interest and importance to him. He has performed at numerous charity events for the Orange County Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Los Angeles Children's Hospital, where his own daughter Victoria was treated for a brain tumor in 1992.

During the Holiday Season, JD and his band donate their time to provide "walk through" performances on every floor of the hospital. Even in the Intensive Care Unit they play acoustic music for the patients and staff. "We bring a Mandolin, Acoustic Guitar, Flute and Djembe." "The kids love it and seem to respond well to it," says JD. "It gives us the opportunity to help the children and give something of ourselves to others who could very much use the extra love and attention!" "Music has healing power."
