Bass Guitar, Upright bass, Cello.


Hi I'm Jon Moses Schickman. I write songs, play guitar and to lesser extent Bass.

I'm looking for additional bands to lend my services to as guitarist or bassists.

My main project is Uromastyx. But I'd like to find other projects to do inbetween these gigs.
Uromastyx is a alternative rock band out the east bay area. We've been around since 2011 playing throughout the bay area at venues including: Starry Plough, Uptown Nightclub, The Connecticut Yankee.
Information on our project including audio and video can be found at ://.uromastyxmusic
