Band to Join.

ABOUT

I’m a bass player with pro gear who has played primarily in cover bands my playing career but also Ive done some originals and studio time. People deserve a show. Im a huge fan of being the entertainment for a venue and put 150% into projects i get into.
Im not into classic rock, or ‘wedding band pop’

my ideal projects are:
- more upbeat and get people to dance.
- open to originals, my strengths are in arrangement.
PERHAPS A TRIBUTE BAND?
- Alice in Chains
- Chevelle
- Tool
- Volbeat

I have *well over* 1000 gigs played. I did 125 with my last band alone. Im well networked in the area and know some great venues personally.

Im very easy to get along with, and have a hard time ‘settling’ for less than my best.
