ABOUT

I'm an Intermediate to advanced groove oriented bass player. I've been playing music and different instruments most of my life. I'm looking to join a band that has dedicated members and and a professional look and sound.

I can and have played classic rock and blues but am looking for something more in the Funk/R&B/Soul styles. I have pro gear and reliable transportation.
