J Chien


Band to Join.


I am a bass player. My first paying gig occurred in 1970. I have played and enjoyed almost all styles and genres. I am looking for a working band that makes crowds dance and rage. A working classic rock cover-band or anything that needs a strong and vigorous bassist would do. I have a wild sense of humor and like things that are slightly odd or challenging musically. I am willing to relocate, don't really love touring so much but would do it.
