ABOUT

Hi I’m Michael, or Foogy, and I’ve been playing music for about 10 years now. I was a marching band guy in highschooI playing clarinet, bass, clarinet, and bass guitar. I taught myself guitar (and bass) and now it’s my main instrument, but I’m proficient at other instruments as well. I’m really just looking for people who I can create, write, and perform with since I’ve had a loooooong stretch of playing with bands and people who really don’t take it seriously enough or that I’m more advanced when it comes to technical proficiency and music theory. I don’t want to have to slow myself down when playing with other people.
That being said, I’m down to play with anyone in pretty much any style. I’m really eager to play, learn, and get better. I listen to everything under the sun, because I’m an addict, and I’m not afraid to play in a style that I’m not used to (I do have a tendency to favor a groove though). Invite me to jam and I will be there. I’m always on time!
