Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am an experienced Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky / Dayton area bass player, playing the circuit regularly since 1992. I have performed at most of the major Cincinnati area festivals (Riverfest, Jammin' on Main, Mason Red Rhythm & Boom, Blue Ash concert series, Oktoberfest, Maifest, Goettafest, etc.) and venues (Bogart's, Madison Theater, Jefferson Hall, Rick's Tavern, etc.). I have opened for several national acts: Gabe Dixon Band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue, BR5-49, Hepcats, Gadjits, Goshorn Brothers, and Thompson Brothers. I have performed at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice.

I have played classic rock, rockabilly, heavy metal, alternate/modern rock, R&B, Southern rock, and folk/pop in various bands over the last two decades. PROGRESSIVE ROCK is my main passion. I have recovered from an injury which sidelined me from Sept 2015 to Nov 2016. I have joined the hard party rock band Social Chemist, but I will be working on side projects.
