ABOUT

My name is Gary, I have played in blues, rock and latin jazz bands, as well as an electronic based band. I'm looking to play with a few talented local musicians on a regular basis. I'm not interested in touring at this time, just local gigs and recording. My tastes range from blues, jazz, fusion, ambient and electronic. At this time, I'm leaning toward improvisational electronic/jazz based original music. I'm also interested in studio work and soundtracks. I tend to rehearse 1-3 hours daily.
