Eclectic taste in music. I have played in power-trio rock bands, pop music/dance band for night clubs and casuals, big-band jazz and jazz combos. I also have experience playing in classical music chamber ensembles. Currently, I am playing with the La Mirada Symphony, as a member of the double bass section (for 13 seasons).
