SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I practice every day for 1 to 2 hours. Love it. I've played in an Americana trio for 10 years, playing and arranging bass lines for original songs. I have a group of talented friends that I jam with for days at a time about 5 times per year. (I mean jam, lots of improvisation and making music on the fly.) Looking to play with a band; willing to take it somewhere if the chemistry is good. Flexible schedule. Santa Cruz County.
