ABOUT

I am a bass guitarist living in Bensalem PA 19020. I am retired from my former career as a computer programmer, so I have plenty of time and energy to devote to being in a band. My greatest passion is to play the oldies from the mid 1950s thu the mid 1970s, but I am also happy playing good music from any decade or genre. I am hoping to contribute my skills to a band that practices weekly and plays out 2 or 3 times a month.
