ABOUT

Let's Gig! I am about all things bass. I love playing and have fun with multiple styles. Overall, I'd say I'm very in touch with the groove that makes your booty move. I'm happiest when the band is tight and the dance floor is packed. I know when to play and when NOT to play.
My fav music to play is mostly 80's (not hairband), 90's, and current music that grooves. I LOVE power Blues and I also love Edgier Alternative Rock. I do like country music but it's pretty much just modern country that I like to play. **I WILL TOUR!**

Influences

Players like Marcus Miller, Sting, Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, John Paul Jones, Chris Wolstenholm, John Taylor, Roscoe Beck, Pino Palladino, Tully Kennedy, Timmy C.. bands like The Police, The Killers, Muse, Eve 6, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, U2, Duran Duran, Tupac, Damian Marley, Matchbox Twenty, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Soundgarden,Tool, Jason Aldean, too many...I'm all over the place. If I was to play country again, it would have to be modern country only as I am more into Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert, Florida Georgia Line, etc. I'm not interested in older style country at this point.
