I'm comfortable playing most variations of rock. Big fan of funk, celtic music, 90's music, anything that people will enjoy listening to.
Experience includes indie rock bands, cover bands, Celtic band "Belfast Gin" based out of Kalamazoo. I have played bars, music festivals, and I've recorded several times.
I also play the trumpet, looking for big band, funk, ska...give me a reason to play! My range right now hits a solid D (2 ledger lines), but with a reason to practice I've hit regular G's above that.
Trumpet experience includes high school band, college band at WMU, and a temporary ska band that won 2nd place in a battle of the bands. :)
Dave Matthews Band, Muse, Cake, Taking Back Sunday, 90's rock, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Flogging Molly, Sgt. Pepper & the Lonely Hearts Club Band, As Tall As Lions, Arturo Sandoval, Maynard Ferguson
