ABOUT

Road worn musician looking for a regular group to perform with. I have decades of experience ranging from front man in 80's cover bands to rhythm guitarist singing background for other, as well as silent bass player just happy to be there. If you're nice, I'll break out my sax for "On The Dark Side" or "Hungry Heart".

I love just about any style but am particularly influenced by The Beatles, Nickel Creek, and Chicago. I love the 80's and have been in several tribute bands in the past. I've been front man/tenor sax in a funk tribute band, singing song from Steely Dan to Earth, Wind, and Fire. (If I like you, I'll break out my Michael McDonald impression for you.)

I'm simply looking for a group of people who want to play a few gigs each month, have a great time playing anything, playing those songs well (not looking for perfection but mainly just want others to care about the sound like I do), and make a few extra bucks on the side.
