Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm a university educated Jazz and Anybody wanna start a British Invasion tribute band?

Classical bassist with the soul of a rocker. I'm full-time employed outside of the music biz, so I'm not looking to tour or anything, but am totally down with gettin' down on interesting projects.
