SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a multi-instrumentalist, specializing in bass (electric bass/bass guitar and upright bass) and cello in the central NJ region. I also sing in the bass range.
I'm available for short-term gigs, fill-ins, and studio work. I am already committed to two bands. I play primarily jazz and rock, but I an also experienced with classical and showtunes/musicals, and I can play in almost any genre desired on the bass.
I also compose and arrange.
I play some clarinet, violin, viola, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, percussion, and flute, to decreasing levels of competency.
