ABOUT

Part time music teacher looking to join band on the side to perform with for fun- Preferably covers but open to originals.

I am primarily located in the Asbury Park Jersey shore area but also have a place in north Jersey. Currently the bassist for an original band so I prefer to join a second band on guitar. If my description sounds at all like a fit for your group please don't hesitate to reach out and we will talk!
