ABOUT

Been playing bass most of my life. I’ve played in several bands and gigged extensively in my 20’s and again in my late 30’s. Past few years, life has gotten in the way but things have evened out and I would like to start gigging again. Can occasionally do some out of town stuff but not available for long tours.

Im a pretty laid back guy and can get along with most people-though I am a bit of an introvert. I’m not interested in lazy, flaky bands. I’m also not into drama. If your band has regular shouting at each other fights or if it’s always a guess as to who will show up for rehearsals and gigs, I’m not interested.

I hate that I’m only allowed to select four genres of music that interest me. I love all music; from Slayer to Notorious B.I.G to Hank Williams to Thelonius Monk to Merle Haggard to the Grateful Dead to Iron Maiden to Rush to Black Sabbath to The Specials to Amy Winehouse to Blink 182 to The Beltones to Judas Priest to....everything. I love it all and will play anything.
