ABOUT

I have many years experience in playing both covers and originals. I don't really see a conflict between the two. They're different sides of performing which in itself is a fun and rewarding addiction. In as far as covers go, I have played in Yes tribute bands, to Beatles tribute bands as well as a variety of Classic Rock bands. My fav cover situation is Classic Rock 60's-90's. Love everything from Brit invasion stuff to the guitar-driven rock of the 90's. As far as Originals go, I have spent many years in an Originals situation, recorded 6+ CD's, toured and have opened for some big names. Being part of a unit that creates new music and presents it to the world is an amazing experience and I'd love to be a part of that again at some point.

I write music as well, can handle lead or back-up vocs, and could even handle some guitar work if needed though primary instrument is bass.
