ABOUT

*A Solid BASS GUITARIST, Entertainer, Booker, & Hype Man ISO AN ESTABLISHED BAND.*
~ I have the gear, charisma, personality, transportation, great sense of humor, motivation & band experience. Handle all band social media pages. I help book a large percentage of the band's shows. And, I am an Entertainer and Hype Man at the Gigs! Because someone has gotta get em out of their seats...
~ Currently, I am gigging regularly with "SONS OF CAROLINA." I have been with them since September 2015. Unfortunately, the band's future is unknown. The lead vocalist is relocating in Fall 2017. Trying to figure out next move. I also played bass for the local Blues band "PRODIGAL SONS" from August 2012 - September 2015. I also played bass with the local Country band "CAROLINA NATION" during the summer of 2015.
