Joe Q on Bass


Band to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums.


In a couple of bands (one original one 80s covers). For me it’s all about creating a pocket and space to support the leads, adding some flavor here and there, but only if it supports the song. Like being creative with covers and also original improvised stuff, and able to contribute to songwriting and lyrics as well on original stuff. Also just as happy jamming in various covers of rock, pop, alternative, punk, blues, alt country, harder blues based rock, classic and southern rock. Also continuing to develop in the funk/slap area as well.
