SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I'm an electric bassist seeking to supplement my income with paying gigs on the side, likely covers or tribute bands evenings and weekends. I have many years experience, both live and in studio, I am personable and accommodating and ego-free when I am on the clock, I seek only to serve it up as requested. I present an exciting but unobtrusive stage presence. I cannot sight read, but am fluent in tab, and have an excellent ear. I can reliably sing baritone backups. I don't drink or do drugs while working, nor do I judge those who do, so far as band time is productive.

EQUIPMENT

I play a Musicman Stingray live through an Ampeg 100 watt tube amplifier, through am Ampeg 6-10" cab, digital effects pedal for various shading. It's the most versatile rig I've had, goes from 0-60 in no time flat.
