ABOUT

I have been a full time professional bass player in Boston for quite a while, and recently moved in NY Metro area for opportunities to perform more often in the area.

Link bellow is a track of snips of my live performance in various styles.

and a link to my studio recording samples.

I have performed 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 usually introduce myself as Funk/R&B player but open to Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop, and any other genre that's challenging and/or new to me.

I read and go by ear, either way depends on the situation, and have decent amount of repertoire (list of my repertoire is available upon request.) I'm also willing to learn new songs and try not to put charts in front of me on the shows.

I have a car so I can do gigs outside the city as well.
