Band to Join.

ABOUT

Mar 2021, still rocking through the pandemic. Versatile bassist / keyboardist available for a high performing working ensemble, either as a fill in or permanent player. NOT looking for weekend jammers.

About my profile:
1) audio files- original music I wrote and produced with top shelf guitarist and drummer Frank D and Jim K; lots more than this, but no one really cares.
2) Videos showcase the excellent talent I have been fortunate to collaborate with over the years: Beginnings (Liz Reed); Dayton 5 (Santana Medley, Locomotive Breath); Tired Starlings (Gimme Shelter, Powder Finger) and current focus JunkYard Dawgs (all other videos).

You can judge my level of play as bassist and keyboardist from these media, but accept the fact that audio in 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. Please be sure to leave contact info on your page! There is no way for me to connect with you without this.

I continue as bassist for the JunkYard Dawgs, but will support other projects that know how to get it done...connect with me, show me what you can do!
