I've always been involved with music. For this reason and to maintain my sanity in this increasingly crazy world, I've continued to play bass guitar and sing professionally in rock bands. While I don't make my living as a musician, I have played professionally in bands since I was 13. I'm now in my late 50's and still rock'n. Starting out as a violinist, I picked up the bass at 13. I've played all varieties of music over the years including disco, funk, R&B, Motown, country and classical. However, rock, especially "classic rock," has been my mainstay and what I know best. I've attached an additional Myspace link below which provides additional information about my previous classic rock cover band "Mid Life Crisis." I left this band after playing with them for over 15 years when my wife and I decided to move to North Carolina. I have been testing the waters in the Raleigh-Durham "Triangle" area for new bands and projects since arriving in August 2010. http://www.myspace.com/midlifecrisislongisland. Please cut and paste that address into your browser and check it out. Other personal contact option at Docdearth2@ a_o_l com. Will consider a diversity or interesting music and band projects. Let's talk...=)
