How long have you been volunteering with Musicians On Call? I’ve been a volunteer for 3 years.

Are you a volunteer guide or musician? Musician

What is your favorite song to play for patients? Drift Away

Do you have any livestreams or other performances coming up? I’m fortunate to be playing social distancing outdoor venues in Key Largo during the week and in Miami on the weekends.
