ABOUT

* * I AM A SOLID, SEASONED, ENERGETIC, CHARISMATIC, HIP, NO BULLSHIT ELECTRIC BASSIST! * *

I am also a Telecaster Lead Cat a few tunes during the Gigs. I also sing a lot of back-up. I also like to do some lead vocal on a few times at the shows...

I have the gear, transportation, motivation & band experience.
