ABOUT

Hello, I am a self-employed musician/performer.
I am currently working with a solid band.
Because this is how I pay bills, I'm always looking for opportunities. Ultimately a consistent weekly gig or band that gigs no less than 4 times/month. Will do fill-in work too as available. I do not intend to leave my current band unless the right opportunity should come along.
I learn material at home prior to rehearsal, keep detailed calendar of gigs, and take pride in being on time, helping with load-in/load-out.
I started on guitar around 1975. I can play very confidently rhythm guitar as well as bass. Went mostly to Bass because brother's (drummer) band needed bassist. Many years and some bands later, here I am.
