ABOUT

Pro Bass Available (Dallas)

Bass available for working or near working band in the Dallas area for gigs playing music in R&B, (especially New Orleans R&B and Funk), Blues, Classic Rock and Country categories: Dance music

I spent years on the road playing a wide variety of music.
I have a great ear, play mostly 5 string bass, but I play 4 and 6 string basses as well.
I can read charts and I know the nashville number system.

I have a variety of amps, large and small for any venue.
I get to the gig early, I'm set up and ready to play on time.
(I like to set up and have a break before I play, maybe even get a bite to eat.)

I treat music as my business, not as a hobby.
My time is valuable, so is yours. I won't waste your time, please don't waste mine.

The Credo: "It's not about me, it's about the song, it's about the audience and all of us having a good time together at the same time."

Some of the few videos (sorry about the quality) I have that were not completely ruined in a fire:

1 Talk To Me Baby ://./watch?v=J7dZaYHAoDs

2 Goin Down To New Orleans ://./watch?v=7zqSpAxXGB4

3 I ain't drunk, I'm just drinkin ://./watch?v=eHNzUelZ0yY

4 Time To Go ://./watch?v=LLTq7OCFhWE

5. Bridge of Love s://./watch?v=UZ8n68aL7nY&feature=g-upl

(This is not my song, I did play bass on it, but having a picture was the only way to make a be soundtrack without video. Song written by David Altice. I miss you, Brother. RIP Dave)

6. Oh Well

Song written by Rusty Reid

I have more audio tracks, but they are copy tunes and be says I must own copyright, so if you want to hear any of those, email me and I will send.

Please have some video (does not have to be pro video) for me to view.

Thanks for viewing
