I am a bass player and am able to sing both lead vocals, as well as backup vocals. I have been playing bass guitar for 8+ years and music in general for 18 years. I am from the New York Metropolitan area. I attended the Paul Green School of Rock for four years from age 14-18.
In that time, I have opened up for Peter Frampton, Y and T, Allan Holdsworth, Jimmie Johnson, Mountain, Project Object, Terry Bozio, Blues Traveler, Dropkick Murphys, and Devo.
I have played on stage with Napoleon Murphy Brock (Zappa), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge), The Butthole Surfers, Tragedy, Anton Fig (David Letterman), Jane Getter Band, Brendon Small (Metalocalpyse), and Andrew W.K. I have been on 4 domestic tours and 2 international tours. Post-School of Rock, I have played on stage with Julio Fernandez (Spyro Gyra), Jules Shear and Pal Shazar.
I have experience playing with wedding bands, club cover bands, original bands, acoustic trios, and jazz trios. I have experience in creating arrangements in terms of medleys and mashing songs together. I have Real Book experience and am able to play live with the Real Book. I have worked and work well with female vocalists in all settings. I have recording experience and have listed a few songs on the profile page.
Any questions, please feel free to email me.
