ABOUT

Currently seeking WORKING BAND only. I'm a Pro with a great ear and feel, I'm a fast learner and DO MY HOMEWORK to make rehearsals worthwhile, and I have vocal ability for lead and harmonies.
Here's my bio:
Although starting out as a drummer, upon listening to Beatles / melodic bass lines of Paul McCartney, I switched to electric bass which enabled a deeper understanding of timing and staying in the pocket with the drummer. After playing with high school R&R/Blues bands I further honed my musicianship on the road, playing clubs from Dallas to Lake Geneva. I've played on stage with blues greats Lonnie Brooks and Eddy Clearwater, and I've opened for rock legend Dave Mason among many other Chicago festival bands. I've played venues such as House of Blues, corporate gigs at major Chicago hotels etc. and appeared live on television, Windy City Live, ABC Chicago.
