ABOUT

The band broke up after nine years and I'm looking for an established working cover band that plays stuff that's musically challenging. 50+, educated, not fugly, quick study, easy to work with, no ego that needs regular feeding and don't smoke/drink (at all)/drug, although I might hit a doob is someone passed me one. I do backup vox as well. I'm not a marginal player - bass is my instrument and you'll hear the difference straight away. 4, 5, 6-string, frets or none, pick or none, contrabass and a bit of violoncello ... it's all good. I also studied classical guitar in a previous life.
I've lost sooo many years in promising projects with outstanding musicians that ultimately failed, so I'm wary of startups, and I'm unable to tour - the day gig just pays too well.
