LOOKING TO JOIN A WORKING OR SOON TO BE WORKING ROCK BAND!!! TONS OF EXPRIENCE AS A BASS PLAYER WITH SOLID BACKGROUND VOX- not looking to go crazy or waste time

I have been playing bass in bands for 35 years. Did the big cover band bar circuit back in the early '80's, mid to late '80's was my time for origial work- a classic rock band and a new wave prog rock original band. Great gigs- cool clubs- CBGB's, Bitter End, Club Nirvana, Kennys Castaways, My Fathers Place, Sundance, to name a small few. Did a TV show- The Joe Franklin Show and some radio spots- spent some time in the early 90's doing a country thing- I'm such a whore...fun at that time- next spent 10 years in an 8 piece horn powered band- since then, I have been in an acoustic classic rock duo. Back vox are good.

Influences

Early on- Jack Bruce- all power trio guys- you can't afford to suck. Love guys like Entwistle- although I don't play that busy. Anyone who can lock in with the drummer and keep it tight and moving.

EQUIPMENT

Bass- Dean (had a nice 5 string bass for about 15 years- forgot it was behind the car and drove over it after a gig- that sucked...)

Amp- Gallien Kruger 800RB with a 4x10" cabinet- have a 2'nd cabinet w/ a 15" in it- big rooms only
