SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Bass my main instrument since 1967. Started on guitar in 1963. Learned blues harp along the way & I play a mean blues harp. I used to read music but play strictly by ear now, and just let myself feel the groove. I can play straight conventional style bass but also have a mean unconventional style of picking bass. I am a talented and accomplished bassist with an innovative style. Looking for (preferably) an already established band needing a replacement bassist. I love playing dance clubs.
