Hello and Welcome!

Soundcheck at the Nashville Palace (2018)

Hello there and welcome to my website. I am a man of many interests. By trade, I’m an Information Technology Manager for a public library. My primary passion is music and my all-time favorite band is KISS. I’m so much into music that I play in a band and an acoustic act, I’m co-host of a music podcast called Ages of Rock, and I’m a DJ on an Internet Radio Station called Metal World Radio. I’ve written some of my own songs and some day, I’ll get around to recording them.

When I’m not podcasting or playing music, I’m either busy with my sound company, AVL Event Services, fishing with friends, or I’m spending time with my family.

If you’re wondering why my website is called Big Al and Friends, it’s because whenever I get the urge to record a song or play a show, I invite my musical friends to join me.

Thanks for visiting!
