ABOUT

Serious and sober semi-professional bassist ready to go full-time, including touring and recording with the right band. Prefer original music but willing to play covers to make a living. I enjoy classic, acoustic and alternative rock, but very much into progressive rock, fusion, acid jazz, and improv. Ready to hit the road immediately and will travel extensively! Not into drinking and drugging, but tolerant of social partying. Motto: "Serious about having fun!" (and try to make a meager living while doing it - at least $250 a week)
