ABOUT

Bass Player who loves to lock in the Groove.
I began playing Acoustic Guitar and when I was 12 years old. I switched to Upright and Electric Bass Guitar at 15. Played in the Jazz and Show Band all through High School. I played in Generation Gap (Country and Folk), Strawberry Gamblers and Ace (R&B Funk) Ozone Park (Acoustic Rock), and Funk-N-Blues (Motown R&B, Rock and Blues), just to name a few however Country is my real Love. I am committed to finding a Professional Band who loves to play tightly and have fun Entertaining People. I have done a Couple Studio Sessions, Outdoor Venues and Bars. I had to take a few years off from playing music because of a Management Job and a Baby Girl. However I've cleaned the dust off these old Paratrooper Bones, Maintainced, Upgraded and added on to my Professional Bass Gear and have been practicing hard at home until I was comfortable enough to put myself out there again. I am Drug Free and Don't Do Drama. I like to have Fun Playing Music but at the same time Serious about Being Professional with my Performance. I am open minded willing to take criticism and willing to put the time in to learn the songs efficiently. Now that my daughter has grown and it's Not Cool to hang out with dad anylonger and my Management job has finished I'll offer to be a Sub but hope to find a fulltime Band in the near future. I'll never Lead fellow musicians along and treat everyone with the respect I would want. I do sing some harmonies but like to concentrate on locking down the groove with the Drummer.
