ABOUT

I am a veteran Bassist with professional experience. I am comfortable playing Rock, Oldies, Funk, Soul, Jazz and Standards. I have a great ear, can work from charts and am willing to rehearse. I have a great attitude and work ethic.

I'm currently providing the bottom for the Sarasota Slim Band.
