ABOUT

Plans on hold. Presently on a deployment, should return approximately August 2020.

I am definitely looking for someone to rock with. I'd like to join a band, but at the very least find a few folks to jam with. I have all my own gear (see equipment list below), and own a car.

Vocalist/Bassist, I have a wide vocal range and can sing almost anything. I also sing harmony. I have only been playing bass about 5 years, but can pick songs up pretty quickly. I've played at several venues around the Boston metro area, including Hard Rock Cafe Boston, Bill's Bar on Lansdowne, Market Lounge in the Financial District, Weston Town Green, and at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain. I’m currently playing with the adult band at the Round Rock School of Rock, we have played recent shows at Dell Diamond and the Round Rock Tavern.

I have a wide variety of songs in my repertoire from the 70’s/80’s/90’s

Contact me at coasterjen9 at y.a.h.o.o.c.o.m if you're interested in chatting. I have other clips of me playing/singing that are more recent than the one posted above, so email me if you'd like more info.
