ABOUT

Bassist for Shot in the Dark

I have played bass and guitar since I was 14. I am well versed in most types of music. I know the basics of theory. I can read Bass and Treble Clef, but I am a bit rusty. I am gig equipped and ready to rock. I have no problem playing slap, with a pick, or fingers. Whatever serves the song. Age is no issue. Some of my favorite jams have been playing classic rock and blues with folks in their 60s and 70s out on a farm. It’s all about the music!
