ABOUT

Looking for a working, variety band. I would like to be playing a strong mix of danceable favorites including classic rock, Motown, modern hits, pop and disco. Rolling Stones, Linda Ronstadt, K.C and the Sunshine Band, Lady Gaga and Meghan Trainor are all on my list of things I'd like to be doing. Looking for a high energy band which excites the crowd and is creative with arrangements.

While I do enjoy playing higher end clubs, I'd also like to be performing at festivals, wineries, and private events including weddings and corporate events. I'd like any band I am in to be able to tailor our sets for specific events from a reasonably large list of songs we know.

I have over thirty years of experience playing a variety of music. I can do some vocals, both lead and background.

Please, no originals, metal or exclusively classic rock bands. I do enjoy playing some blues and country music, but also not exclusively and they are certainly not high on my priority list.

EQUIPMENT

Basses, amps, speakers and PA's. Yep, I got 'em. Several of each.

My main bass is a Carvin LB-5W. I play a five string mainly so I can easily transpose songs that would otherwise require that I tune down.

My primary amp is a GK MB115 combo amp.
