Band to Join.

ABOUT

I need a gig before I loose my mind. I've been playing since 1983. Been all around the U.S. and lots of Asia. Used to be in the Marine Corps band years ago. Worked as a freelancer/ Jazzer in Florida for about 15 years in the Tampa area. I'm not a good sight reader but I can follow a chart, lead sheet etc. There is nothing I cannot play stylistically or technically. If desired I can solo with great proficiency, expanding any ensembles tonal palette. I am not a snob, I will play anything for money.
