SEEKINGBand to Join.
Really starting many years ago (I'm in my 40s now) with a blues band I was in during college; bass guitar has been a constant part of my life. Whether I'm performing in a band, practicing at home or listening intently to the masters, it's always been there. I dabble some with guitar too, and try my hand at songwriting here and there, but bass has always been my strength.
I'm looking for a creative performing outlet. I'm the guy in the band who always has the songs practiced, is always early to the gig...
