I was a music major in college with Woodwinds as my major and Piano as my second. Took bass guitar as my primary instrument in the mid 70's. I have played in Jazz fusion, classic jazz, funk, rock, studio, wedding, original, cover, back up bands for the Coasters and the Orlons, on TV with The Cheadle family band on the 10 Show and a coast to coast family band competition for COZI TV. I've played in most all of the venues in Philadelphia and some in New York.
I am interested in joining or putting together an instrumental group with the same mindset as a Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Spyro Grya, Marcus Miller type of fusion.
I have a fully equipped rehearsal studio in my house. Also offer lessons on many instruments and music harmony and theory. Visit Tom Vail or Funcletoms academy of music on fbook.
