Band to Join.

ABOUT

Veteran bass player looking for a band to join or start. I recently moved to Fort Collins and looking for an established band or to work with others to start a new band. Very experienced in most styles: R&B, funk, soul, blues, contemporary jazz, country, classic rock, gospel, contemporary Christian. I lay down a strong pocket with excellent, punchy tone. No thumb slapping but a very solid groove.
I have a lot of recording experience so my emphasis is playing appropriately to match the style of the song, whatever style the song might be.
I have a fully equipped and sound proofed rehearsal room with PA, mics, synthesizers, guitar amp, and drum set - just walk in and play!!
