My favorite influences are Gene Kruppa. Alex Acuna , Dave Weckl Skeeter Betts Verdine White, Victor Wooten, James Jameson, Abraham La Borial, Timothy B. Smith. and my good friend and personal Mentor Mark Pollack who I owe much of my talent too.
I have several configurations depending on the size and restrictions of a show. My main choice right now for large venues is a GK RB1000Bass Head with an Ampeg SVT 6/10s Bass cabinet.
I also have a Bull Frog 18" Cab powered by a 1000 watt Hartke Bass head, and lastly, for small lounge type gigs I use an Ampeg 100 watt head with Ampeg 4/10s Cab. My Guitar of choice is a 1968 Fender 4 string Jazz Bass , it makes for a good veriety of tones. I also use an Ibanez SD 5 String Bass.
