Bass Guitar, Drums, Upright bass.


I play guitar and bass, keyboards, banjo, fiddle, harmonica, and a few other instruments. 35 years professional experience.

I've been doing mostly solo acoustc for the last few years.

My wife, Sue, sometimes performs with me as well, and we call ourselves, "Almost Live".

I'd like to find a bass player, and maybe another guitar player who can also bang on a cajon, where we could all switch off on instruments, to play some easy lounge gigs, and make some easy money,
