Band to Join, Lead Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.

ABOUT

I am a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with 30 years of experience.

I am looking to join or form a band as a bass player because that is still my first love. I'm mainly interested in originals but a mix of covers and originals would also be cool.

I'm pretty open to most anything at this point. I prefer songs that groove and make you want to get up and move but I can play most any style.

The thing I'd most like to do right now would be some kind of hip-hop influenced funk. It could be instrumental, with a turntabliist, MCs, or all of the above.

The only genres I'm NOT interested in doing are country, metal, and christian anything.

I understand the role of the bass in a song and will hold the bottom and the groove. I'm not someone who thinks every song is a bass solo or a slap-fest.

I'm looking for established musicians that would practice roughly once a week and play out once or twice a month. I am a committed and reliable individual and will be there on time and know the songs forwards and backwards.

My experience includes countless gigs, different bands/ genres, recording sessions, live radio, TV, festivals, etc...just about everything short of being signed and touring. I have professional level gear that is reliable and I always bring backups just in case.

I would like to work with quality musicians who are down to earth, experienced, and professional. I don't care how old you are or whether you're male or female. The people I want to work with love music, have experience, can play their hearts out, and aren't into drinking too much, drugs, or pushing their ideologies on everyone else.

I have several of my originals up on the player so you can get an idea of where I'm coming from. I'm playing all the instruments on each song and singing on 'A Song About Time'. These should give you an idea of my playing across several different instruments.
