I am a 44-year-old professional bassist/bgv (looks younger tho) with over 10 years performance experience looking for an ESTABLISHED band in the NEPA area in need. I can play everything from classic rock, alt/modern, top 40, country to some classic prog. I was last a member of "Something Wicked," an original band that also performed a lot of covers from bands ranging from the Beatles to Nirvana to Pink Floyd and everything in between.

I wish to be a part of a dedicated band that gigs regularly (2-5 times per month.) After all, why not spend time making some $$$ by doing what we enjoy most? I have a lot of fun with music, but I promise you an excellent work ethic and a professional approach/attitude. My only obstacle at this time is I am unavailable for shows or practice Wednesday evenings.

This SHOULD go without saying, but I've had a couple of bad experiences so I want it understood I require NO drugs-- INCLUDING POT-- drinking or drama! I come with a high work ethic, no ego or drama and a desire to have fun with music by making it the best I can.

Call me/leave a message 570 DELL 159 or e-mail me at twasthen at ya*** dot com
