ABOUT

In general, I am looking for anyone who wants to jam, and potentially play some shows. I play bass, acoustic guitar, rhythm electric, and drums, and I have 14, 15, 8, and 7 years of experience on each respectively. I played bass and sang backup in a band for about 2 years, and have graced many a party with only my voice and an acoustic guitar, to rave reviews (in my mind, at least. yes, I admit, I am just the kind of d-bag who shows up to a party with a damn guitar...). I am reasonably good with percussion, but don't expect much more than straight-forward rock or country stuff. Also, I have never played drums with anyone else, but I would like to try. Oh, and for the record, I am interested in and willing to play WAY more than Country, Punk, and Ska. Just ask.

EQUIPMENT

Fender Jazz Bass with some slight modifications(EMG passive pickups, Babicz bridge, her name's Bertha), Kustom Deep End DE300HD Head, Ampeg SVT 410 Cabinet, which equals 300 watts of low frequency window-shattering FURY! Oh yeah, and one shitty $150 Ibanez Soundgear Bass(Name's Jenny) that for some reason sounds like a unicorn shitting a champagne rainbow of cupcakes and bacon. I can't explain it. It just sounds, well....GOOD. Tama Imperial Star drum kit, Roland TD-4KP portable electronic drum kit (so I can pound on some drums at midnight without pissing off the neighbors. And, it's portable!), Epiphone Wildkat electrified geetar (ooh,Tess! she a HOT one!), 2 acoustic guitars(Susanna and Victoria).
