ABOUT

See .outbackband ,

NOTE: After almost 14 wonderful years with The Outback Band, I've decided to retire. While I prefer to lay low in the wintertime, I'd be open to WELL PAYING fill-in gigs occasionally, weekends only. I'm willing to travel if necessary, but again, only for very good paying jobs. I simply prefer not to be locked into a band anymore.

53 years as a drummer, 30 years as a bassist. Lead or Harmony vocals on either instrument. Well versed in Country, Oldies, Motown, some R&B, some Southern Rock and some Classic Rock.

Fun-loving and very professional. Prefer skilled musicians who've left their egos, band politics and woman problems at the door. Available for studio work on a limited basis. I do not read music, preferring chord charts in the studio.
While I've been friends with the Marlboro Man since the age of 13, I've never had drug or drinking problems. EVER. I also will not work with those who do. I still remember the distant past when I bailed drunken bandmates out of jail or them tossing their cookies in my car. Those days are over, believe me.

Treat me well and you won't find a more professional sideman. NOT interested in 3-Chord garage bands. Skilled pros ONLY.
