Have many years doing country/western, bluegrass, Christian contemporary, Gospel, rock, pop, blues, R&B, funk, jazz and some other genre as I like almost all forms. The Music Genre only allowed 3! Committed musician to the art. I've been in many bands over the years going back to the 70's doing everything from Country & Western to Rock & Roll. Spent about 2 years as a session bassist working with many regional entertainers out in Southern California doing promotional records.
