ABOUT

I am retired, new to Riverview, FL & looking to join (or form) a band playing danceable blues, soul, alt-country & rock 'n' roll music having you laugh to keep from crying and/or with an edge of eros to it. Example, "(Bend Over Let Me See Ya) Shake Ya Tailfeather" by James & Bobby Purify. I'd call a new band "The Love Drunks", i.e., those intoxicated on Love. I am solid, though not flashy on bass, rhythm & acoustic guitars, play well with others and am regularly learning more about lead & improvising. If any of this piques your interest let me know.

I can do my own setups & have a 5-String Jay Turser copy of the Modulus Graphite bass to which I have added some active EMG's & a Plum Crazy (Dodge metallic purple) paint job. Also a 4x10 Hartke cab, QSC RMX 850 power amp, & a Line6 Bass Pod I use as a pre-amp. Also I have an Epiphone Les Paul Special II, a new West German Harley Benton 335 clone, & an old FG 310 Yamaha acoustic.
