Band to Join.


June 2019...still rocking! Versatile bassist / keyboardist available for a high performing working ensemble. Love to emphasize progressive, but understand the need to play to an audience. Will work as a team to provide you with the professional edge you need. NOT looking for weekend jammers.

My profile consists of:
1) audio files- original music I wrote and produced with top shelf guitarist and drummer Frank D and Jim K;
2) Videos showcasing the excellent talent I have been fortunate to collaborate with over the years: Beginnings (Liz Reed); Dayton 5 (Santana Medley, Locomotive Breath); and current focus JunkYard Dawgs (The Weight, Fortunate Son, Midnight Rider, Ramblin' Man).

You can judge my level of play as bassist and keyboardist from these media. My apologies that the audio in some of the video is not optimally mixed.

To those of you who need a bassist or keyboardist: I'm always willing to discuss opportunities with bands in my geographic radius who play material aligned to my influences, especially if you have multi-instrumental players who enjoy switching around on guitar / bass / keys.

2019 commitment: bassist for the JunkYard Dawgs - please visit Bandmix and Faicebook profiles for complete ensemble details and schedule. We try to maintain a balanced workload - a mix of bar/restaurant gigs open to the public, private events, and fund raisers for worthy charities.

Attention potential collaborators: If you tag my site with the intent of bringing me into your project, be sure to have some form of contact info on your page. There's no way for me to connect with you without this.
