ABOUT

I'm looking for kind people to jam and hang with in the DeKalb area. I've been playing bass for about 25 years with plenty of experience both on stage and in the studio. I have pro gear and reliable transportation. I would be interested in contributing to original material or playing awesome covers, or just hanging out and making cool noises, as long as I'm playing! I'm a pretty decent improvist and I can play just about anything I hear with enough practice. I'm not super flashy, but I thrive on a good groove and can learn complex parts relatively easily.
