I appreciate great musicianship in simple forms, signature riffs, smart progressive changes, and polished vocal harmonies. I thrive on good groove, tight performances, and flow from the beginning of a song to the end of a set. Organizing member of the Utah Blues Society (2014). Online administrator for the Utah County Blues Society. Salt Lake, Utah, Davis, and Wasatch county gigs are fine. Out-of-state gigs are good-to-go as well if the price is right. Strengths in marketing and branding. Founding member of River House Band (circa 2011). Can run sound for bands indoors or out... just ask me to work things out. I tech guitars on the side as well.

Fish that got away...
'62 Fender Jazzmaster
'64 Rickenbacker 4001
'84 Gibson SG Standard.

I enjoy a decent blues jam, great band mates, and networking with new musicians. Some influential bassists for me are John Paul Jones (Zeppelin), Steve Harris (Maiden), Geddy Lee (Rush), and Justin Chancellor (Tool).
