ABOUT

Solid, reliable bass player with over 30 years of experience. I've played in rock, oldies, and country bands. I currently play in a rock cover band, Helm's Deep. We are considering adding a female lead vocalist to add a new dimension to our sound. Check out axeman410 for some demo recordings of the band. I also play in my church praise band. I recently attended a group master class with local jazz bassist Brian Bortz. I've completed Gary Burton's "Introduction to Jazz Improvisation" online class on Coursera. I'm interested in connecting with and learning from other local bass players. BassGuy64_at_Yah00_dot_com.
