SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

I have performed in a variety of different musical settings and venues, including semi-professionally. I have toured with a college recruiting band, played in a collegiate pep band and other types of ensembles, performed in numerous weddings, and taught guitar lessons. The bulk of my performance experience comes from playing with a number of different worship bands in contemporary Christian Sunday morning church settings. I have professionally performed on piano and hand percussion and am also proficient in bass guitar and acoustic guitar as well as backup vocals. I dabble in electric, trap set, viola, and others. I'm looking for a way to be involved in a QUALITY band playing either contemporary Christian or folk/acoustic stuff. I have experience writing in the folk/singer-songwriter genres. I would like to either find, create, or join a group that is currently performing or plans to perform gigs. Willing to travel down the road.
