SEEKINGBand to Join, Piano.
I play music because I enjoy it - a "Professional Hobby". People seem to appreciate what I bring to the table, but not every situation is the right fit... I have a full-time day job and family. Music is in my blood, I am committed to the right situation, but not more committed than I am to my family, present job, and the Lord (not necessarily in that order)...
Jazz - straight ahead to fusion. Love the progressive style with a deep groove (think ocean boat hull vs flats boat hull). Love (and play) Steely Dan. I read music (charts and notes), compose a bit, good ear, and can contribute BGVs. Have played and enjoyed playing in big bands, combos, recording, and producing. Looking to form or join a band that has jazz/fusion/R&B roots; no drugs or booze, family oriented. Desire 1-2 gigs per month (give or take), preferably festivals and special occasions. Worship ministry events also desired.
Locally, I've played at the Straz, the Mahaffey Theater, Tropicana field, Coachman Park, many other event centers on bass and guitar, depending on the need. Longstanding jazz gig at the Vines Bar & Grill in Orlando; church- and restaurant friendly.
