ABOUT

I have been a full-time professional bass player for more than a decade, and am looking for more gigs on weeknights and Sunday mornings in NYC and Long Island.

I have been performing for several wedding/club/cover bands, Gospel/Praise & Worship music ministries, and original music groups of R&B, Jazz, Pop, Folk, Authentic African (Senegalese), etc. I categorize myself as Funk/R&B/Gospel player but open to Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop, and any other genre that’s musically interesting.

Here is a link to couple of my studio recording samples.

I both read charts and go by ear depends on the situation, and have a vast amount of repertoire (list of my repertoire is available upon request.) I’m also happy to learn new songs.

I have a reliable car to do gigs outside the city as well. I play ‘73 Fender Jazz bass, ’94 Jazz Bass 5 Plus, Minimoog synth bass with TC Electronics RH450 amp head and Aguilar 112 cab for most of small to mid-size venues.
