Jim Wingate


Bass Guitar, Violin, Saxophone, Upright bass, Cello.


I listen to and play a wide range of music to include old rock, folk, celtic, swing, classic and some new country, blues, old time mountain music, bluegrass, gospel, and 30s, 40s smooth Jazz Standards. I'd love to find some easy going musicians/singers that have an appreciation for all types of music like I do that would enjoy getting together from time to time. I'm just as relaxed picking and singing in public as I am in the living room. It is all fun! I enjoy playing in a band situation or playing piano or guitar for a soloist.
