ABOUT

Experienced funk/rock/blues guitar player looking for a band playing originals, or covers or both. Ideally, I'm looking for something in the vein of a funk outfit sending out good vibes, extended grooves and some improvisation, but I am very open-minded and will entertain other avenues, I'm looking to play!

I have professional grade equipment, reliable transportation, versatility in playing styles, stage and studio experience, and a professional attitude with a loose vibe.

For some samples of my playing, please check out my studio project on - search for The Hazy Caravan. I've also posted some videos on be, search The Hazy Caravan,
