SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm generally a quiet, laid-back and unassuming guy with a good sense of professionalism. These are the tools that have gotten me through as many gigs as I have in one piece.

I'm not a showy player but can bust out when it's called for. I tend to prefer order and structure in bands I'm in. I'm a big fan of showing up on time with my homework done and my personal baggage at home.

Looking for GB, working band or fill-in.

Influences

I think of myself as a student of music...I enjoy the excitement of hearing something new and being able to experience it and enjoy it as much as I did when i was a kid.

I grew up listening to 70's and 80's Punk and classic Blues. These were good backgrounds for getting into jazz, heavy metal, gothic and industrial.

The only greater thrill at times is moving from an active listener to an active player and learning to incorporate something new into my style and repertoire.

But at the end of the day it's about the groove...putting something together that just "works" and puts a smile on your face and on the faces of anyone within earshot!
