ABOUT

I am easy going, and have paid my dues many times with band politics and drama. I simply want to play music with people I respect and get along with. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and have been playing gigs since I was 16. I have played Classical to Country and Rockabilly to Metal. I have performed with some of the best and some of the worst, and it all breaks down to finding the "sound" that brings a smile to the faces of the band.
I am currently in a working band in another state. I moved to Memphis 1 year ago, and wish to meet and perform with musicians from around the Memphis area. I am a lead vocalist, keyboardist, guitarist, and harmonica player in my current band, but have also played drums, bass, saxophone, and trumpet professionally. My roots are in soul, blues & rock. I have played mostly in cover bands & played on tour with two members of the Grand Ole Opry. westfinch52 at g mail dot com
