ABOUT

I am a versatile player and a fast learner. I have a lot of professional gigging experience. I have reliable transportation and I am willing to rehearse.

I do have a full-time job - so I need to set rehearsal times to evenings, and I need advanced notice for long distance gigs.

I love music and listen to all sorts of stuff - I don't tend to discriminate styles. I LOVE Reggae, R&B, Pop, Classical styles and World music, this is worth noting since there was a max on the choices for "genre of music" on my profile.

I have experience playing orchestral music on my upright bass as well, and I can sight-read.
