ABOUT

I'm primarily a bass player but enjoy rhythm guitar too and am really proficient at a variety of ska and reggae strum patterns. I'm into all forms of Ska -- early ska through 3rd wave, punk-influenced or neo-trad. I also enjoy skate, street, and Celtic punk--not so much into hardcore.

I'm 36, and married with kids, but I would still love to jam with some people and maybe play some small gigs, etc. more for recreation than anything else. I've got decent songwriting chops. In general, I like music that is raw and not overly produced, driven more by rhythm and vibe than by technique and complexity.

Full disclosure, if it's a dealbreaker for anyone, I've got 5 kids and am LDS so a certain family-friendly vibe is important to me, but I'm not the type to be all in your face about it.
