ABOUT

I'm Jon, I'm 25 and I live in Brooklyn. I have 15 years experience as a guitar player, about 20 years as a piano player (less extensive than my guitar playing) and I have experience as a live performer, session player, producer, film scorer, TV music writer, and orchestrator.

I'm very interested in starting/joining a band. I really don't have any particular genre in mind, as long as it grooves. I'm more interested in meeting high quality musicians and just seeing what develops. The rest will take care of itself!

Although I guess I should clarify. Here's the list of genres that I have played in a group setting

-Big band
-tin pan alley
-fusion
-swing
-funk
-indie
-hard rock
-classic rock
-punk
-metal
-latin (bossa nova, samba)
-blues: all shapes and sizes
-R&B
-Gospel
-Country


I love almost everything... I'm more interested in the quality of musicians and less concerned about musical direction.
