I do more genres than bandmix let's me select.

I've averaged 2 gigs per week for the past 6 yrs here in San Antonio. Every week, I play Sunday night from 9:30p to 1:30p At the Pro Jam at Make My Day Lounge with Mike Ellis, Jackie Huddle, and any number of players who come in to perform (come on down and play with us!). Having done so, I've been exposed to many tunes, styles, people and as a result of doing this for 6 yrs, can adapt pretty readily, and work with a wide variety of musicians playing at various levels.
