ABOUT

I'm a bass & guitar player always on the look out for other people to play with, either in a jam or casual band context. If you're in my area and want to get together to play some time, let me know.

Recently played in an original Americana rock band. In the past I've done doom metal, classic rock and 80's covers as well as other Americana classics/originals.

Have picked up playing pedal steel, so I'm in the market for some classic/alt country jams where I can play along without you expecting too much. :)
