ABOUT

I am a seasoned and serious bassist looking for a band to play with in the local area. I play the whole spectrum of crowd pleasers ..50's to current rock, country, metal, fusion and originals. I play and record and sequence keys very well too. I would be happiest in a band where we all get along as friends. I am hoping for a female singer band that does any music (not rap) up until 2005.
