SEEKINGBand to Join.
I have played country bass in all four corners of the USA and in several European countries (including a U.S. Embassy), and in bands that opened for several major recording artists on tour through Europe during the '70's.
In 1988, I co-founded the non-profit New Hampshire Country Music Association and was elected to its Board of Governors for nine years including two years as it's Treasurer and directed their Annual Awards Show for six years at an 880-seat theater. I've played in numerous Country bands in New England including a four-year stint with a house band at the most popular country music nightclub in New Hampshire. I was inducted into the NH Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2000.
I use the Nashville Numbering System and have a repertoire of about eighty (mostly Country) songs to contribute.
I've learned the music business well enough to not be dependant on it for a living (I've always kept my day job). So I'm looking for like-minded non-egotistical musicians to play with a few times a month in the Port Orange area, and I'm often available for short-notice fill-ins as a substitute bass player. 386-451-8222.

I'm currently playing bass for the THIS N THAT Band of Daytona Beach. We play at local venues in the area and host the Country Shindig every Thursday evening from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Rose Bay RV Park on Nova Road in Port Orange. Invited singers and musicians join us for some fun and comradery and the public is invited to listen and dance.
