ABOUT

Professional musician, gigged all over East Coast - equally proficient on trumpet and bass. I have played in bands for over 30 years. Quick learner - reads charts and can play by ear. BA in Music from Mason Gross/Rutgers (but equally comfortable with great players that don't read.) I have played in many professional settings, including, rock, pop, show, big band (lead and solo trumpet), symphonic band, orchestra, jazz, country and ethnic music.

The first demo here I am on the bass. The second, I am on electric upright and all trumpet parts. I also have demos on reverbnation - bravadoblues, as well as Johnvandecker. Additional demos available upon request - jevandeck at yah0
