ABOUT

Update: Currently not seeking a band until the pandemic is managed.

Former touring musician for over 10 years - vocals and bass, took time off to do family and career, now getting back into playing. Can sing lead while playing bass. Would be most comfortable in multi-vocalist band where I can sing at least some lead. I'd be happy in almost any style of music (although probably not Polka - been there, done that). If I could pick my own set list, it'd probably be more progressive rock, with a healthy dose of alternative, and some variety rock. I've been in show bands, Beatles tributes, metal, progressive, and variety bands (and a memorable 3-month stint in Polka band.) I started learning piano when I was about 6 (long since left keys behind, although I am trying to re-learn), picked up trumpet in 5th grade, switched to tuba in jr. high, then took up the bass in HS jazz band and have never looked back. Music is my passion. I practice solo every day, and would like a band that practices weekly.
