ABOUT

I am an older guy with a family and a full time job. I love playing music and I volunteer playing bass at my church a couple of weekends per month, although that doesn't effect gigs. I love all styles of music and enjoy playing out and writing/recording. Because of my job and family, I cannot commit 100% of my time, but I would love to gig a couple of weekends per month and practice a couple a days per week. I began playing guitar in 1986 and bass in 1993, due to trouble finding a bass player for my band. I began keyboards around the same time as bass, but never truly pursued it. I have been singing all of my life and I have a rather wide range (although not what it was 10 years ago).
