ABOUT

Been playing Baritone uke for 52 years, and Electric Bass for 2 years. Keyboards for 30 years. My singing is kind of marginal, especially when playing the bass.

Looking for people who just want to sit around and play and maybe go to open mics. Church groups and retirement homes are great venues, as well. I make my money through other means, and play music as a gift.

Looking for a vocalists and lead instruments. My job, as a bassist, is to sit in the back and make you sound amazing!

Here is my share folder of some songs I've recently recorded with others. I left the mistakes in so that you can see how I recover when things don't always go as planned : )

I am also an electrical engineer, so I can fix almost anything.
