ABOUT

Styles I can play are: Jazz, funk, blues, bluegrass, roots country, R & B, Rock, Folk, Zydeco, Reggae,Americana. I have excellent equipment, reliable transportation, can lay down a groove or solo. Love to jam and like to fuse other styles with each other. I do not prefer rap, metal or new country.

Primarily looking for a fun original or some covers situation with experienced players that might be gigging.

I Just got out of an electric progressive jazz rock setting, which was quite challenging. Have done several stints in local well known bands in various styles.
Currently in a jazz trio with my upright but am available.
