Band to Join, Vocalist, Bass Guitar, Background Singer.

ABOUT

I'm a non-smoking, -druggie, -drinking, -drama, solid bass player with a wide-range background voice. Not many frills, just solid. My priorities are: family (married with three girls), work (gotta provide--music can't do that consistently), and music. In that order. Music's important to me, but it's clearly third.

That said, I dig on good-time rock and roll ("Classic rock", whatever that means), some moderate metal (Tantric, Godsmack, Megadeth), and some other stuff (Ray Lamontagne, 311, No Doubt, etc). Wide ranges of stuff. Try me! Chances are I like it!
