ABOUT

I've played hundreds and hundreds of gigs in all styles - a huge number of theater and arranged performances (HoF shows for example) to jazz gigs where a large amount of the gig is "open". I'm extremely easy, professional, funny guy to play with; love my work, am tireless in pursuit of it (I'm always the first at the rehearsal and the last to leave); I have excellent stage presence, knowing my dynamic level at all times and I look good is most "gig" clothes; I come with very little baggage except for the desire to be good at this work.

Influences

Pretty much anything from J.S. Bach to Stevie Wonder if the bass line is rich and plays an interesting part in the whole of the piece. I don't mind a pedal bass when its needed, but an unthinking bass part kills me.

EQUIPMENT

2 uprights (one a beautiful Kay bass for jazz and country, one a more classical/pit bass); 1 electric upright (perfect for any style, also rather eye catching); 2 electric basses (very traditional - one more the jazz bass, one more a rock bass - both sound great but I don't use them as much because my "thing" is really upright bass.
