Band to Join.


"Young 50-something" experienced bass player looking to step into a working band with gigs and connections. I've played alternative, rock, pop, jazz, etc. I'm near pro level in skill, with solid rhythm and groove. I love to lock in with a good drummer. I'm a fast learner, well versed in music theory and a strong reader as well (if you have a book). I can also add some backup vocals where needed. I have a professional engineering career by day, but I'm available most nights and weekends for rehearsals and gigs. I've got pro equipment and I can produce a wide variety of bass sounds for just about any kind of popular music. I'm very reliable--when I commit, I'm there. Alt contact: put a dot between my first & last names at hoo ya. 6 0 2 3 2 0 2 6 5 1

70's prog rock & fusion, 80's synth pop and new wave, 90's & 2000's grunge & alternative, and even the great stuff coming out now. I am not stuck in the past and I have never stopped following new bands and new music. I'm as into new stuff happening right now as I was in the 70's, so don't hold my age against me. You want to do Duran Duran, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Collective Soul, Incubus, NIN, Beck, Twenty-one Pilots or Imagine Dragons? I'm all over it. I'm not much into blues or country, but I've been known to compromise for a song or two. ;-)
