SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am an experienced, professional bassist seeking like-minded, serious and mature musicians 30 years old and up. My musical interests are quite varied and range from experimental jazz to funky acoustic rock, and I'm open to creating a new project or joining a working band. No 100% cover bands, metal, rap or country, however.

My hope is to make great music with talented musicians in an ego-free, drama-free, drug-free and democratic environment which encourages creativity and inspired performances. I have a wonderful family and a fulltime job, but that doesn't limit me from gigging (nights and weekends free). As far as my gear, I've got all sorts of basses and amplification to cover anything from a coffee house to a big stage.

Let's see what happens, shall we?

Influences

I listen to a wide variety of music, so it's hard to pinpoint any specific influences. If I had to choose one genre, it would have to be prog (anything from classic 70s symphonic stuff to modern).

EQUIPMENT

I own a large number of four- and five-string basses (both fretted and fretless), acoustic bass guitars, an 8-string and an electric upright. I also have several amp rigs which can cover everything from a coffee house to a big stage.
