ABOUT

I'm a bassist from Menomonie currently playing with Big Back Yard, The Rattlenecks, and Round 2. I have a very good ear and can learn songs relatively quickly on bass. I already know quite a few songs so I am able to fill in with a country/ rock band easily. Now that fall is here, so comes the slow down of gigs. I like to stay busy playing as much as I can, don't hesitate to get a hold of me if you need a pinch player.

Besides rock and country, I also really like playing Funk and Jazz but I don't get many opportunities to do so around here. I'm pretty good at sight reading big band tunes as well as playing in a small jazz combo.
