ABOUT

I previously was touring playing Bass guitar for BB Secrist and his Rockin 88's., in a Classic Rock show band. I have played in other Rock and Country groups playing bass , as well as Acoustic and electric lead guitar. I have good Lead and Harmony vocal ability with a a good attitude.I'm a Christian with no ego no drugs or alcohol issues.I work hard at learning material and can learn many styles.
I'm seeking a quality local show band with less travel
