ABOUT

Moving to North Little Rock soon. Would like to start or join a Blues / R&B / Soul / Funk (Old School) band with a horn section and a front person who sings on pitch, with feeling, and who knows why it's called the entertainment industry. I've played pocket bass for several decades (mostly in Canada). I've been living in NE Arkansas for 5 years, which is 4 years too long. Should be in NLR before winter sets in hard.

Also on My Space, as Carey Carter. Can't get the link to work here - but will try again later.
