Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I am a Keyboard and/or Bass player with years of Studio and live experience. My background includes many live bands, worship leading with various churches, studio work as both player and engineer/producer. I am currently playing with two Portland bands:

NW Sugar Shakers: Keyboard Player for this Five piece highly polished dance band playing the best of 70's, 80's, 90's and current rock/pop/R&B hits.

Homebrew: Play keyboards and run sound for this fun 11 piece Blues/R&B hobby/gigging band.

I play occasional "pick up" gigs, filling in for bass or keyboard players with other local bands or artists.

I've also found a niche as a local sound technician, running three standing shows each year, plus other sound-gigs as contracted. Clients include Portland Nursery and Self Enhancement Incorporated. I enjoy working with local bands to improve their sound.
