ABOUT

Only accepting auditions from signed bands or bands that tour nationally/internationally on a regular basis.

Classically trained in composition/arranging, theory/ear training. Professional arranger/orchestrator for bands/artists as well as film composer and performer. Can play written music either notes or tab. Can transcribe and play anything from recordings.
I have sung, played bass, guitar, piano, and drums in bands. I have toured with both rock and classical groups and LOVE doing it.

I'm also willing to bang on a drumset for the pure enjoyment and novelty of it since I can play (a little) and I know lots of bands need drummers. I'm not an expert at fills or anything but I can play in ANY time signature and change between them mid-song and I have also played drums with backing tracks and click live and I currently play with a band every now and then. I have no set yet...my neighbors would probably kill me. I do have a double bass pedal though and I am happy to use it.

EQUIPMENT

Got guitar, bass, keyboard, half stack (guitar), full stack (bass), a couple pedals POD Line 6 for guitar, your usual cables, picks and capos, conductor's baton, nothing crazy. I'm not one into making bizarre sounds and soloing...pretty much just good at straightforward playing consistent parts that fit the music. My keyboard is full size, weighted and not equipped with many sounds and functions best as...a piano.
