ABOUT

Experienced BASS PLAYER available for the right situation. I have strong lead and background vocals (2nd tenor/baritone with added falsetto range), a solid knowledge of music theory, a great ear, and a very steady "clock." I'm a team player who shows up on time prepared for rehearsals and gigs. I have all pro gear that is very clean and I keep it in excellent condition.

If you're interested in playing for "free beer," or just for fun, I'm not your guy. Yeah, it has to be fun, but always playing for free isn't fun! However, if you have a promising startup with experienced musicians, I'm willing to make the investment to build something special.

I bring zero drama to the situation. Comedy, maybe. :-D ...but no drama.

Contact me through bandmix or email me at chucksylvester AT musician DOT org.
