An organist by trade, he developed his own driving style, distinct from the 1970’s and 80’s Rhode’s piano-derived funk into a free-form of keys and progressions without ever taking lessons on a piano. Sometimes, he gets them all correct. Currently, Scooter performs regionally with Undeclared Millionaire (Steve Simonson, Kevin Hadley, Dale Southard) and locally with El Dente (Undeclared Millionaire along with Dave Smith, Emily Smith and Smith Duncan of Sake Shot). Most recently, Scooter joined renowned songwriter Rob Harrington (and gang) to begin a master project known as Dale’s House where he plays keys and harp. Scooter credits his love of music to his mentor and teacher, David Dickey of Lee's Music, who first hired Scooter at the age of 8. He is married with 4 children, 2 dogs and 3 damn cats.
