ABOUT

I'm looking for any combination of musicians who will play my music with as much commitment as I will play theirs. I'm looking for great players, to be sure, but I'm also interested in supportive players, folks who encourage one another to play their best and who get as excited about everyone else's playing as much as their own.

I prefer playing original music, but covers are fine too, especially if the band can take them in a fresh direction. (I'm much less interested in "sounding just like the record.")

As a bass player, the older I get the more I like to groove. So don't expect a lot of flash. Expect a thick bottom end that supports the song.

I played full time back in the day, but these days I have a family and a great day job, so I'm not looking to tour the world. Well, unless it was a really good tour. But I'll put in the time to make the band sound good.
