SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Experience: Eclectic, versatile bassist. In the past few years, I played in a corporate-gig working band (rock, disco & Motown), a classic rock band, an 80s hair band, an original alt-jazz trio, and an alt-country band.

I read music and know a good amount of theory. I can teach this if you need as part of our group efforts.
