ABOUT

Experienced bassist and singer looking to move on from the classic rock scene.

I joined my first rock band in 1971, and have been in and out of the music scene ever since. I have a good ear, am quick to learn new songs, and can read sheet music. Primarily a bassist in a variety of genres including classic rock, prog, blues, and jazz. I have played some rhythm guitar as well. As a BG vocalist, I can harmonize over a wide range. Willing to sing lead if required. Can operate a PA or recording system in a pinch.

While my history is mostly in classic rock, I am looking to break out of that genre. 40 years of playing it is plenty, thanks.
